Default Re: Bulls Trade James Johnson To Toronto

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.

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.
