KC Johnson reports
The Chicago Bulls officially announced the signing of Brian Scalabrine on Monday afternoon.
Scalabrine and the Bulls had been waiting for clearance from FIBA since Scalabrine had left Benetton Treviso, the Italian team he had played for during the lockout.
Scalabrine told the Tribune last week that he repaid the club all of what he made plus an unspecified amount extra to get out of his contract.
Scalabrine’s contract is for the veteran’s minimum and not fully guaranteed, a source said.
Ouch, so Scal lost money by playing in Italy? That’s gotta bite.
Glad to have Scalabrine back in the NBA. Good third string power forward. He defends perimeter bigs very well and is a very intelligent team defender. Solid shooter from the perimeter. Solid passer. Atrocious rebounder.
