Former Chicago Bulls’ first round draft pick James Johnson has returned to the Bulls after an eight game stint in the developmental league.

In those eight games for the Iowa Energy, Johnson averaged 19.3 points and 8.8 rebounds.

“It was great,” Johnson told the Chicago Tribune’s K.C. Johnson. “It was fun playing again. I think I played well, worked on some things I needed to work on.”

Steve Kyler, of HoopsWorld.com, speculated on Monday on The Score that Johnson’s call up might be an effort to showcase him before trying to move him at the trade deadline as part of a deal that would being an upgrade at shooting guard to the Bulls.
