Quote from Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald http://www.dailyherald.com/story/?id=335366

"Center Jerome James is back to running full speed after recovering from a torn right Achilles tendon. He mentioned that he needs to pass a fitness test before he'll be allowed to practice with the Bulls. The burly 7-footer hasn't played since early last season with New York. - Center Aaron Gray (stress fracture in his left fibula) is running on the zero-gravity treadmill and expects to be back on the court soon."

I saw James at the Charlotte game Saturday and he looked bigger than Stacey King.  He has to weigh well over 300 pounds.  I don't remember seeing him play, so I can't comment on him at all.  Between the two of these bigs, maybe they can give a few minutes blow to Noah and Miller when they get off injured reserve.

Both Gray and James could be useful given there size. They are gonna help out a little as the season moves further along to give Noah and Miller some needed rest at times. They both have some what of an established post game but also have they're share of flaws, they move slower than slow. They're off the books after this season so that's gonna free up close to 8mil in salary.

We'll see what Jerome James shows up. If he's able to turn it on like he has been able to at times, then he could be useful, but he's never been a star by any means, so I'm not expecting barely anything.
