On Thanksgiving morning, the Bulls front office was at work as they signed NBA journeyman Noah Vonleh. Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news.

The Charlotte Hornets selected Vonleh with the ninth overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. He played for the Hornets and Trailblazers for full seasons before being traded around the league to the Bulls, Knicks, Timberwolves, and Nuggets.

Throughout his career, Vonleh has averaged 16.9 minutes per game, but that clip dropped to 10.5 minutes per game last season. Vonleh averages around five points and five boards per game throughout his time in the league. His career stats reflect those of a rotational big man.

Vonleh signs in Chicago on a one-year deal to fill a bench spot, presumably as a placeholder on the roster for the Bulls' 2020 44th overall pick, Marko Simonovic, while he plays out his Adriatic League contract.
