It won't change the result of Monday night's controversial overtime loss to the Nuggets at the United Center, but the Bulls announced a new roster addition Tuesday.

Forward Malcolm Thomas was officially signed to a 10-day contract, the team announced, as was first reported in advance by RealGM.com Monday and confirmed by CSNChicago.com.

Thomas was a member of the Warriors until recently -- his 10-day contract with Golden State expired Monday -- but played sparingly, including in Friday's loss to the Bulls in Oakland.

The 6-foot-9, athletic 24-year-old played for the Bulls' summer-league team in Las Vegas last summer and excelled, leading the event in rebounding and along with second-year swingman Jimmy Butler, making the all-tournament team.

Briefly a member of the Spurs last season -- he played with San Antonio starter Kawhi Leonard in college at San Diego State -- Thomas started this campaign with a professional team in Israel before eventually signing with the Warriors' D-League affiliate in Santa Cruz, Calif., where he again made his mark as a rebounder, earning a call-up to Golden State.
