Bulls Send Johnson To Toronto For Draft Pick

The Chicago Bulls have traded former first round pick James Johnson to the Toronto Raptors in exchange for Miami’s 2011 regular first-round pick, which was held by the Raptors.

Johnson was the 16th overall pick by the Bulls in the 2009 draft, but never lived up to his potential here in Chicago. In his 78 career games with the Bulls, Johnson averaged 3.8 points, 1.9 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game.

Johnson started 11 games in his rookie season after spending two years at Wake Forest.

  • Jon, Montgomery

    perhaps this sets up another trade for the bulls?

  • Jake from da burbs

    Well that explains why they were holding D-League tryouts earlier today…

    Its good that the Bulls are stockpiling draft picks that can be peddled off for another player before the deadline.

    As for Johnson, he’s clearly talented but the question is, will he “get it.” Its going to take time and Toronto can be patient with him.
