The departure of Mike James from the Erie Bayhawks of the D-League one day before signing a 10-day deal with the Bulls was cited as being for "personal reasons."

But the way in which James left disturbed a few members of the organization.

"Mike had his own agenda, per se," said teammate Kyle Spain. "That's probably why I'm not surprised that he had left."

James has a long history of short stays throughout his basketball career.
