The Bulls parted ways with reserve guards Ryan Allen and Marko Jaric Wednesday afternoon to cut the roster down to 13.

Opening night rosters throughout the NBA are required to be set by 4 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 29, two days before the Bulls' 2012-13 season opener.

Allen, the younger brother of Memphis Grizzlies guard Tony Allen and roommate of Derrick Rose, appeared in just two preseason games, and averaged just a half-minute per contest. Allen also has ties to Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau, but the 6-foot-3 undrafted rookie out of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee didn't make the final cut.

Jaric saw more time this preseason, appearing in four exhibition contests with 0.3 rebounds and 3.5 minutes per game. CSNChicago Bull Insider Aggrey Sam believes the 34-year-old veteran may not be away for long:

They'll start the season at that number. Wouldn't be shocked to see Jaric return in about a month.
