Chicago Bulls officially sign Aaron Brooks

The Chicago Bulls are looking at options to get as much talented depth as possible assembled on their roster and their latest move has all the makings of a classic Bulls signing in a good way.

In recent years the Bulls have been pinching pennies on their bench signings but they’ve added a pretty decent name to back up Derrick Rose and provide a pop off the bench.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the Bulls officially added guard Aaron Brooks to the roster this week after flirting with the idea of adding him earlier in the weekend.

Besides the McDermott signing, the Bulls also announced that guard Aaron Brooks was officially added to the roster, giving them a proven backup behind Rose and Kirk Hinrich.

“We’re excited to add a player as experienced and talented as Aaron to our group,’’ general manager Gar Forman said in a statement.

Brooks was a player the Bulls would have liked to add a few years ago to help get some help with the scoring alongside Derrick Rose but now that he’s past his prime his time with the Bulls will be spent coming off the bench as a back up.

That’s not a bad thing either, as the Bulls best season recently was the 2010-11 season where the Bench mob provided some of the best depth in the NBA, which is something the Bulls are trying to restore with signings like that of Brooks, Kirk Hinrich and others.
