The Chicago Bulls aren’t having the season they thought they’d be having at this point, but that hasn’t stopped them from adding players to their roster that could end up helping them. While they traded away Luol Deng and Marquis Teague, the team is re-signing guard Mike James.

Chicago Tribune Bulls beat writer K.C. Johnson broke the news on Twitter that the Bulls would be bringing James back.

James has twice been with the Bulls before, getting signed to back-to-back 10-day contracts during the 2012 season before just being retained for the rest of the campaign. He was also on the team to start the 2013-14 season before he was cut back in December.

The team is bringing him back though to provide a veteran presence on the bench as well as depth at point guard. With Derrick Rose out and Marquis Teague now playing ball in Brooklyn, the Bulls need all the depth they can get there.

They also need bodies on the bench to meet league requirements, and to give the appearance that they’re actually trying to win something this season.
