Asik, on his second tour with the Bulls, was acquired in a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans in February, when the Bulls sent Nikola Mirotić to New Orleans.

He also played for Chicago in the 2010-11 and 2011-12 NBA seasons. He has career averages of 2.9 points and 4.4 rebounds in 152 games for the Bulls.
