CHICAGO -- Veteran centre Nazr Mohammed says he is staying with the Chicago Bulls.

Mohammed announced on Twitter on Tuesday that he will re-sign with his hometown team, saying it was "an easy decision" and he was looking forward to "going to battle with a group of guys who never made excuses and just tried to find a way to win."

Several media outlets also reported that the Bulls have agreed to a two-year deal with Mike Dunleavy Jr. as they try to boost their shooting. Dunleavy, an 11-year veteran, spent the past two years with Milwaukee and averaged 10.5 points while shooting 42.8 per cent on 3-pointers.

The Bulls also drafted New Mexico's Tony Snell and Florida's Erik Murphy to boost their perimeter game.
