Omer Asik was in the US for tryouts trying to get a contract and all turned out well for him, as he agreed with the Chicago Bulls. The Turkish International will be a reserve for starting center Joakim Noah.

24-year old and 213cm tall Asik was drafted in 2008 as the 36th pick overall by the Portland Trail Blazers. Last season he competed for Fenerbahce Ulker, averaging 8.9 points and 6 rebounds in the Euroleague.
