With the waiving of veteran guards Mike James, Ronnie Brewer, and forward Lou Amundson the Chicago Bulls final roster is down to 11 spots. All of the contracts were unguaranteed, and were expected to be waived.
Trimming the fat off the salary cap and aiming to narrow down a final core roster before training camp, these moves were imminent with Carlos Boozer also being amnestied today.
Currently, the Bulls’ roster is comprised of Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Mike Dunleavy, Taj Gibson, Joakim Noah, Tony Snell, Doug McDermott, Cameron Bairstow, Pau Gasol, Nikola Mirotic, and Kirk Hinrich. One more veteran minimum player will likely be added, then leaving a roster spot(s) to non-guaranteed rookie contracts.
