The Chicago Bulls have eight players under contract and are likely to fill out the rest of their roster with minimum salary players.
Nazr Mohammed played for the Bulls last season on a veteran-minimum contract and expects to return for the 2013-14 campaign.
"They want me back," Mohammed said. "I want to be back. Now it's the technicality of getting (the contract) done."
The Bulls are already over the projected luxury tax line for next season.
