Brewer spent 2010/11 and 2011/12 seasons in Chicago.
The Chicago Bulls have re-signed former guard Ronnie Brewer for the rest of the season to add some much needed depth to their roster ahead of the playoffs.
Since leaving the Bulls, Brewer has played for the likes of the New York Knicks, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Houston Rockets, but has struggled for consistent playing time in order to make a significant impact.
The 29-year-old will hope his return to Chicago signals a fresh start as he reunites with coach Tom Thibodeau, and will likely form part of the secondary unit to add some depth to the roster as the Bulls prepare for the post-season.
Brewer formed part of the much-celebrated ‘Bench Mob’ during his first stint with the organisation, and while he may have lost his way in recent years he will be delighted to have been given the opportunity to rediscover his play in Thibodeau’s system.
His defensive skills will likely suit the coach’s game and while he isn’t particularly the strongest offensive outlet, he will give the likes of Jimmy Butler a chance to play less minutes in order to cope with the strain of playing so often.
Having waived Erik Murphy last week, it was inevitable that Chicago would add a player to their roster, and it is expected that they will likely target one more before the playoffs start.
Thibodeau has led his men to a 45-32 record so far this season, and although they sit in fourth spot in the Eastern Conference, they remain locked with the Toronto Raptors with plenty to play for as we reach the final few games of the regular season.
