The Chicago Bulls re-signed reserve forward Brian Scalabrine on Monday. He played in just 18 games with the team last season, averaging just 1.1 points per game, but head coach Tom Thibodeau liked what he brought to the locker room:
coach Tom Thibodeau praised him throughout last season, noting Scalabrine was a solid presence in the locker room and helped players under the principles Thibodeau was trying to implement during his first season as coach.
This will be the 33-year-old's 11th season in the NBA and second with the Bulls. Prior to coming to Chicago, he spent five years with Boston and four with New Jersey.
