Brad Miller arrived at the Berto Center about 5:30 p.m. Thursday. He is set to begin his second stint with the Bulls after being traded with John Salmons from Sacramento Wednesday for Drew Gooden and and Andres Nocioni.
``I was pretty excited to come closer to home,'' Miller, an Indiana native, said. ``And to come back to a place I've played before. Everything's real familiar and the comfort level's good. An opportunity to make the playoffs is one of the biggest things when I talked to my agent about getting traded. Winning is really what matters at this stage of my career. I'm definitely excited.
``Just bring some experience. [Joakim] Noah and [Tyrus] Thomas are playing real good lately. I don't play the same game as them. I'm just going to try and mix in. My only goal is winning. I want to help these young guys. I've been working with Spencer Hawes for a year and a half. So I understand these young, big guys think. Not necessarily what goes through their head but what they think go through their head.''
