Chicago Bulls agree surprise signing

Former Miami Heat forward Jarvis Varnado has earned a 10-day deal with the Chicago Bulls after a trial on Monday afternoon, according to Yahoo Sports writer Adrian Wojnarowski.

Varnado has spent this season in the D-League with the Iowa Enegry, but has previous experience of the NBA during brief spells with both the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat.

The 25-year-old is the best blocker in the D-League this season with an average of 4.7 per game, with the Bulls seeing enough potential to offer the versatile nomad a short-team deal.

Chicago could have Varnado involved as early as Wednesday night, when the Bulls face the Toronto Raptors.

Tom Thibodeau's side are a safe bet for the playoffs despite suffering a miserable season with injury, a run that shows no sign of ending as Derrick Rose faces a second-straight campaign on the sidelines.

Chicago's move for Varnado is likely a short-term stop gap to fill the void on defense left by Luol Deng's departure, but won't dampen any of the uncertainty surrounding experienced figures like Carlos Boozer.
