Yet another familiar face will remain with the Bulls for the 2015-16 season.


ESPN’s Marc Stein has reported that Aaron Brooks will be returning to the Bulls on a one-year deal. Stein made the report on Tuesday, and it has beenconfirmed by the Chicago Tribune‘s K.C. Johnson.


Johnson’s report states that Brooks has only verbally committed to re-signing with the Bulls.


Brooks averaged 11.6 points and 3.2 assists in 23.0 minutes while shooting 42.1 percent from the field. He’ll rejoin Kirk Hinrich on the bench as backup point guards to Derrick Rose.

The Bulls released the names of their Summer League players on Tuesday. Sophomores Cameron Bairstow and Doug McDermott are the biggest names on the list, while the Bulls’ lone rookie Bobby Portis — who officially signed his contract as of Tuesday — will join them as well.


Aside from those already on the Bulls roster, two of Fred Hoiberg’s former players from Iowa State have spots on the team, guards Diante Garrett and Tyrus McGee. Illinois product Rayvonte Rice is also on the team.


Listed below is the Bulls’ full Summer League roster. They will compete at the Samsung NBA Summer League in Las Vegas with a July 11 opener.
