There's really not a ton you need to know about Dexter, outside of it being a fine show about an engaging serial killer and wrapping up its final season this year on Showtime....
A former second round pick of the Miami Heat out of the University of Texas, Pittman spent just a smidgeon over two years on the Heat bench, only seeing the floor 41 times and averaging 7 minutes a game. His lifetime averages are a whopping 2 pts and less than 2 rebounds. Essentially, Scalabrine can get you that behind a desk in the studio.

I will say this...at 6'11 and 285 lbs...he certainly is that third center, size-wise, but then again so is Chewbacca, and you don't see Chewy getting a Bulls training camp invite, do you?

This signing does NOT accomplish that, unless the Bulls see something in Pittman that the Heat could never figure out. Probably not the case though, as the Memphis Grizzlies had him for all of seven games last year..and that was enough for them to cut him loose.
He's still just 25 years of age, and there clearly is nothing at risk with a training camp invite. He IS the right size...so maybe Thibs can make something out of him.

And hey...he would bring something to the Bulls that only one other roster member can claim....a championship ring. I'd find it rather chuckle-worthy if the only two guys on the Bulls roster with championship rings are Nazr "The Shove" Mohammed and Dexter Pittman.
Lets just hope THIS Dexter's career finale doesn't come sooner than the Showtime series. Stay tuned for more Chicago Bulls News my fellow Bulls Fans!
