The Chicago Bulls are bringing back yet another familiar face for next season, as they re-sign forward Derrick Jones Jr. to a two-year, $6.6M deal with a player option in the second season.

Despite struggling with some injuries this past season, the 25-year-old was a productive role player for the Bulls. Playing roughly 17 minutes a game, Jones put up 5.6 PPG while shooting a career-high 32.8% from behind the arc.

The Bulls got a steal by bringing back Jones. He is an athletic wing that knows the offense and can knock down his shots on top of being a solid defender.
