The Bulls have given up on 2009 first-round pick James Johnson, whom they traded to the Raptors on Tuesday The Bulls will receive the Miami Heat's 2011 first-round pick, which was held by Toronto.

Johnson left Bulls practice early in a limousine.

"I consider JJ a little brother," Joakim Noah said. "He wasn't playing a lot. I hope he gets an opportunity to show what kind of player he is."

Thats it? A 2nd rd pick. :confusedshrug:

But what did I expect James Johnson to bring back. Guess something is better than nothing (which he is). Such a lame duck talent. Why did Chicago draft him. Damn.

Maybe they plan on trading for J.R. Smith after this trade they now have exactly enough cap space to do it.

Not 100% sure, haven't been able to find an article yet. But I saw that intention posted on realgm earlier, Bulls were looking to acquire a first or second round pick for JJ to shed salary.

He is still a project, spent time in the D-League, would never play ahead of Brewer, Korver, etc. He was blocked. At least T-Dot's 2nd round picks are like low 1st rounders. :lol

And let us not forget, the sole reason they did this was to free up about $2 million more. They were already $3+ million under the cap. So now they have a little over $5 million free (maybe more). It looks like Chicago may get a SG who makes $5 mil per...anyone fit that bill who is involved in trade rumors?

Courtney Lee and Marcus Thornton made less than James Johnson did...so, it can't be them...

But JR Smith...

JR Smith makes about as much as Chicago now has freed up.

Interesting.

where/when is he going to get consistent playing time for this to "possibly" happen?

The deal makes sense as a precursor to something else. If Chi can get a good sg they become a threat.

Bogans has a team option after this year. Which means Ronnie or Kyle start next year, which leaves a hole on the bench.

It's exactly enough for JR Smith, which is fine with me.

This trade is a possible precursor to picking up Anthony Parker, JR Smith or Courtney Lee I think. Most likely Parker or Lee.

Had enough for both Lee(cap wise at least) and Parker already. Which means it's gotta be J.R. Smith.
