CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls re-signed veteran center-forward Corie Blount on Thursday.

Blount, originally chosen by the Bulls in the first round of the 1993 draft, averaged 3.0 points and 4.0 rebounds in 50 games last season.

He was also brought back to work with young big men Eddy Curry and Tyson Chandler.

He rejoined the Bulls when he signed as a free agent in July 2002. Terms of his new contract were not disclosed.
