It appears the Bulls aren't completely done with their late-season roster maneuvers.

A pair of veterans who have played for the team in the past, point guard Mike James and power forward Lou Amundson, will be signing with the Bulls in the near future, according to a league source.

James played for the Bulls earlier this season and Amundson, who played for New Orleans earlier in the campaign, was briefly on the team last season.

Both players would be playoff-eligible because neither was on an NBA roster on March 1.

After adding another familiar face, swingman Ronnie Brewer, the impending signings of James and Amundson would put the Bulls at the limit of 15 players on the roster heading into the postseason.

James, who is very familiar with Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau's system, would likely be the team's third point guard behind starter Kirk Hinrich and backup D.J. Augustin, meaning another in-season acquisition, Jimmer Fredette, is probably regarded as more of a an off-the-ball spot-up shooter and not a primary ballhandler.

Amundson would give the Bulls another body on the interior, providing depth behind starting power forward Carlos Boozer and sixth man Taj Gibson.
