With just six days remaining in the regular season, it's seems an odd time to make a roster move, but the Bulls announced Friday they have waived center Jerome James and signed forward Rob Kurz.
Kurz, 25, played at Notre Dame and most recently was with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA Developmental League where he averaged 17.5 points and 10.1 rebounds in 39 games.
James was acquired in a trade with the New York Knicks in February 2009. He was injured at the time (Achilles surgery) and never played for the Bulls.
Kurz, a 6-9 forward, is unlikely to see any playing time this season. He was signed with an eye towards the summer league team and perhaps training camp next fall.
