Bulls, Nazr Mohammed reach one-year deal for his return

Nazr Mohammed provided the Bulls 11 minutes of solid defense in the paint per game last year, a few buckets here and there, and one famous shove of LeBron James in the playoffs.

That was enough to earn him a new deal.

The Bulls and Mohammed have agreed to a one-year, veteran minimum deal. That was first reported by Aggrey Sam of CSNChicago.com, then was confirmed on twitter by Mohammed himself.

This is a solid deal for both sides. However, it cannot be consummated until July 10 (the first day players can sign after the moratorium).

    Nazrrrrr. Welcome back. Nothing like playing in your home town for a contender.

    Definitely a fan favorite in Chicago. Glad to have him back, he’s a good fit for Thibs and provides solid minutes off the bench playing a role he is comfortable playing – the enforcer.

    The shove was the best moment in the postseason.

      Think about that for a second. You hung on every second of every Heat game in the post season praying that they’d lose 4 of 7. And a foolish technical foul that cost the Bulls (you’re not even a Bulls fan) a chance to win that game was your favorite moment of the entire post season? Isn’t that just about the saddest thing you ever heard?

      I’ll vote for Ray Allen’s three in Game 6. Or as I like to call it, “The Big Three”. Or LeBron’s stuff on Splitter. Or the 33-5 run. Or Bosh’s block. Or Wade’s toughness. Or LeBron’s buzzer beater against Indy. Or LeBron’s Game 7 dagger. Or the champagne celebration. Or the parade (from TV). Or Miller’s One Shoe Three. Or the Headband. Or UD playing through a torn meniscus.

      Much more fun to look back on the postseason with that iconic/historic shot being your top moment, rather than a boneheaded play by a backup goon that accomplished the opposite of what it was intended to do.

      Why do you do this to yourself? Just give in already. At this point you’re the armless/legless black night from Monty Python’s Holy Grail.

        Hung on every second? I didn’t watch a single Heat game from start to finish. I saw a few quarters, but would never spend all that time watching a team that is more lucky than good.
        The fraud you praise as “King” is still 10-12 lifetime in the Finals. He’s only had 4 good games out of 22 in the Finals.

    ^ I though it was the wall Hibbert put infront of melo when he tried to go up for a dunk no?

    I love that picture they posted for this. Look at the floppers face! Haha. He looks like he got shot. He really should play soccer instead.

    • 1972wasalongtimeago - Jul 2, 2013 at 2:06 PM

      If he did he’d be the best soccer player. Not going away. This long stroll around the bases just started. You’re just going to have to stand there on the mound and watch. Enjoy it.

        Why don’t you just marry the guy. Never seen anyone so obsessed with an athlete. I bet you think he can cure cancer?

    If you’re still trying to clown Lebron you just end up looking like a clown. Get over it already.
