Aaron Brooks agrees to 1-year deal to stay with Bulls

He will again back up Derrick Rose.

The Chicago Bulls have agreed to re-sign backup point guard Aaron Brooks on a one-year contract, reports ESPN's Marc Stein. Contract terms are not yet clear. Brooks signed for the veteran's minimum last year, so he could agree for 120 percent of that number or sign for larger out of a portion of the Bulls' taxpayer mid-level exception.

Brooks was a sparkplug off the bench for the Bulls, averaging just under 12 points a game in 23 minutes per contest. The 30-year-old was the latest small guard to thrive in Tom Thibodeau's system, and the Bulls hope his production will carry over under new coach Fred Hoiberg. He's too limited as a passer and defender to log heavier minutes, but as a backup to Derrick Rose, he fared well.

The Bulls now have 14 players under contract, so it's likely they won't make any more moves unless they can trade a player.
