Report: Bulls lock up Nocioni

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) – The Chicago Bulls have reportedly agreed with
restricted free agent Andres Nocioni on a five-year contract worth an
estimated $38 million.

The Bulls have been vocal about their intentions to keep the power forward in
the fold, and have apparently kept their word.

The Chicago Tribune, which reported the deal, says that the contract includes
a team option for a sixth season.

The deal won’t become official until the free-agent moratorium ends July

Nocioni, a 6-foot-7 native of Argentina, averaged 14.1 points and 5.7 rebounds
last season.
