CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls re-signed veteran forward Brian Scalabrine on Monday.

Scalabrine, 33, played in 18 games for the Bulls last season. During the NBA lockout, Scalabrine played in Italy before returning to the States to try to make his way back onto the Bulls' roster.

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau praised him throughout last season, noting Scalabrine was a solid presence in the locker room and helped players under the principles Thibodeau was trying to implement during his first season as coach.

Scalabrine became a fan favorite during his time with the Boston Celtics and that reputation followed him to Chicago. Bulls fans, at home and on the road, chanted for him toward the end of most games.
