The Chicago Bulls are signing Noan Vonleh to an one-year deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Vonleh started the previous season with the Minnesota Timberwolves, before getting involved in a multi-team trade to join the Denver Nuggets.

The 25-year-old big man made 36 appearances during the 2019/2020 campaign averaging 3.7 points and 3.4 rebounds in 10.5 minutes per game.

Vonleh, who the Charlotte Hornets picked ninth overall pick in 2014, previously appeared as a member of the Bulls down the stretch of the 2017-18 season.

The Indiana product is a seasoned journeyman, despite being 25-years old. He had his best season of his career so far during the 2018/19 campaign with the New York Knicks.

The Bulls had 15 active contracts on their roster. As a result, they will have to free a spot for Vonleh until the start of the 2020/21 season.
