Both have been in the building working for the Bulls for several weeks already. Fleming, 49, has served as a Nets assistant coach for the past three seasons. He also worked as a Nuggets assistant coach in 2015-'16. 

Rogers, 45, spent the last three seasons on the Rockets' staff and is known as a defensive-minded coach. He also served on the bench for the Celtics, Nets, Pistons and Wizards previously. 

"There was a lot of thought put into the hiring of Chris and Roy, and I’m excited about the way our coaching staff has come together this offseason," Boylen said in a statement. "The addition of these two highly regarded coaches will bring new experiences to the culture we’re building here. I value the fact that they have come from recent playoff teams and have proven track records of strong player development, as well as creative basketball minds on both ends of the floor. They communicate well with players, have coached and developed All-Stars from around the league and come from programs that we believe have done it the right way. Their coaching styles and expertise fits into areas where we as a team can and want to improve."

Additionally, the Bulls have elevated Karen Stack to a full-time assistant coach role. Practically speaking, she was already filling that role, having been added as an associate coach last summer and then taking on more responsibility following the firing of coach Fred Hoiberg and the resignation of assistant Randy Brown early in December.

Nate Loenser, Dean Cooper and Shawn Respert also each return to the bench on Boylen's staff. Paul Miller has been named the assistant to the head coach after filling a role on Boylen's bench foolowing Hoiberg's firing.

Chris Kent also has been hired as the team's video coordinator. Kent was a coaching intern last season.
