Big news for Kentucky’s most veteran NBA player. According to CSNChicago’s Aggrey Sam, Nazr Mohammed will return to the Bulls for one more year, agreeing to a one-year, veteran minimum deal.
Nazr discussed the happy news on Twitter:
It was an easy decision because I really enjoyed my teammates, coaching staff, management and the fans. I felt that we exceeded everyone’s expectations but our own. I decided to return to the city that I was born and raised in to play my 16th season. Looking forward to going to battle with a group of guys who never made excuses and just tried to find a way to win. Can’t wait to play for the Bulls again next season #SeeRed #BullsNation #Holdat
16 years in the NBA. Wow. Seems like just yesterday Big Nazr was running behind the bus at Kentucky trying to work off some lbs.
Not Jerry Tipton gives us a little perspective: Nazr was playing at Kentucky before 2014 commit Karl Towns was even born.
