Bulls sign Ronnie Brewer for rest of season

Since the Bulls waived Erik Murphy – regardless of whether another team claimed him (the Jazz did) – it was inevitable they’d add another player.

They did today.

Bulls team release:

The Chicago Bulls announced today the team has signed free agent guard/forward Ronnie Brewer for the remainder of the season.

Brewer spent 2010-11 and 2011-12 as a productive role player for the Bulls. Then, he bounced between the Knicks, Thunder and Rockets, increasingly struggling at every step of the way. Houston even waived him midway through this season.

Has the 29-year-old wing lost a step, or has he just struggled to find his niche outside Tom Thibodeau’s system? Chicago is obviously hoping for the latter, and if that’s the case, Brewer could help in the playoffs. He was a quality defender as recently as two seasons ago, even if his offense has never looked polished.

The Bulls can still sign another player or two before the playoffs, so Brewer might not be the end of their late-season tweaking. Mike James, anyone?

    This guy reminds me of Matt Flynn of the Packers, Seahawks, Bills, and then back to Packers.

    Oh and Raiders.

    Hope Ronnie Brewer can catch some of that magic he had with the The Bench Mob.

    If anything, Jimmy Butler should be a bit relieved that hopefully he doesn’t play 48 minutes every game and Ronnie could get some in some minutes.

    The bulls should have never released Ronnie Brewer in the first place.

    And the Bulls revolving door policy with players continues.
