Chicago - The Chicago Bulls announced the signing of free agent guard Ronnie Brewer on Monday.

Terms of the contract were not released, but it was earlier reported to be for three years and $12.5 million.

The Bulls moved quickly on Brewer after the Magic matched the team's offer sheet to J.J. Redick on Friday.

"We're very happy to add a player of Ronnie's ability to our team. He brings great versatility on both ends of the floor and will be an excellent addition to our backcourt," said Bulls general manager Gar Forman.

Brewer joins forward Carlos Boozer and guard Kyle Korver as members of the 2009-10 Jazz who will play for the Bulls this season. Brewer was actually traded to Memphis midway through last season, but played only five games for the Grizzlies before an injury sidelined him.

In 58 games in 2009-10, Brewer averaged 8.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists. He averaged a career-best 13.7 points in 81 games for the Jazz in 2008-09 and has a career per-game points average of 10.3 in 271 contests.
