Veteran NBA point guard Mike James was extended an invite to training camp by the Chicago Bulls. James appeared in 11 games for the Bulls during the 2011-12 season.
NBA training camp will begin in a few weeks, officially marking the start of the 2013-14 season. But when it comes to the Chicago Bulls, they still don’t have enough players signed to meet the league minimum of 13 players on the roster.
However, according to the Chicago Tribune, veteran point guard Mike James was offered and accepted a training camp invite from the Bulls. Fans will remember James as being a member of the team during the 2011-12 season when he was signed late in the year during Derrick Rose’s injury plagued campaign.
James appeared in 11 games with the team that season, averaging 4.8 points and 2.6 assists.
Of course, being invited to camp doesn’t necessarily mean that a player will make the active roster, but it certainly gives them an opportunity to win a spot. It’s widely known that Chicago has one more roster spot to fill, however most have speculated – and even suggested – that the Bulls final spot should be awarded to a big man to shore up the front line.
