Jason Thompson signs with the Bulls in China
Jason Thompson joins the Bulls, per international basketball authority, David Pick.
Bulls sign Jason Thompson to deal in $1.5 million range, via source. Not Chicago Bulls – China's Shandong Bulls.

Thompson played eight years in the league, mostly for the Kings. He holds career averages of 8.9 points and 6.6 rebounds per game.
The 6-foot-11 center is only 30-years-old so there is still the possibility of an NBA comeback, if he chooses and if there’s an opportunity.
Outside of Europe, China has become a new option for former NBA players. In fact, former All-Stars Gilbert Arenas, Tracy McGrady, Steve Francis, Metta World Peace, and Stephon Marbury have all taken their talents to the far East.
