Brad Miller arrived at the Berto Center about 5:30 p.m. Thursday. He is set to begin his second stint with the Bulls after being traded with John Salmons from Sacramento Wednesday for Drew Gooden and and Andres Nocioni.
“I was pretty excited to come closer to home,” Miller, an Indiana native, said. “And to come back to a place I’ve played before. Everything’s real familiar and the comfort level’s good. An opportunity to make the playoffs is one of the biggest things when I talked to my agent about getting traded. Winning is really what matters at this stage of my career. I’m definitely excited.
“Just bring some experience. [Joakim] Noah and [Tyrus] Thomas are playing real good lately. I don’t play the same game as them. I’m just going to try and mix in. My only goal is winning. I want to help these young guys. I’ve been working with Spencer Hawes for a year and a half. So I understand these young, big guys think. Not necessarily what goes through their head but what they think go through their head.”
