A league source confirmed to ESPNChicago.com late Saturday the Chicago Bulls are on the verge of signing free agent center Nazr Mohammed, a 14-year veteran who spent the previous two seasons with the Thunder.

Mohammed is a Chicago native and will be playing for his eighth different NBA team.

The New York Post reported early Sunday that Mohammed has decided to sign with the Bulls over the Brooklyn Nets and both teams had been notified about the decision. Mohammed's addition likely means that the Bulls will not match the three year, $25.1 million dollar offer sheet the Houston Rockets gave center Omer Asik.

Mohammed averaged 2.7 points and 2.7 rebounds for the Thunder last season.
