The 31-year-old big man averaged 9.5 points and 3.9 rebounds for the Bulls last season.
Bulls coach Jim Boylen praised Lopez’s leadership earlier in the year.
“It’s invaluable to have a guy who honors his role as an example to the team, a guy who speaks up when a situation needs to be addressed,” Boylen said then, via the Chicago Tribune. “What I want is guys who take ownership of our play and mistakes and coach each other and help each other and hold each other accountable. RoLo has done that.”
Lopez reportedly had interest from other teams, including the Knicks, who were heavily targeting him, and the Warriors.
