   Where Are They Now, 2010 Summer League
2010-09-17

- James Johnson - After a really bad performance in summer league, and considering the Bulls offseason moves, it wouldn't be a bad idea for James Johnson to go to the D-League next year, while he still can.

Dante Cunningham

Considering he's always been a power forward in a small forward's body, Cunningham made a pretty decent effort of pretending otherwise. Given plenty of opportunities due to injury, Cunningham shot his customary mid range two's well, rebounding well enough for a man of his size, and proved he could play defense on most small and power forwards. He also turned it over only 25 times all year, leading all rookies in turnover percentage at 6.0%. This is helped significantly by the fact that he doesn't dribble, but nevertheless, it's a hugely impressive number. (Tyler Hansbrough was next lowest at 7.1% in his part-season of work; Marcus Thornton was third at 7.3%. The worst? Jrue Holiday, 21.9%. Then James Johnson. Then Hasheem Thabeet.)

   Tax Payers, Trade Kickers, And Other Deadline Day Bookkeeping
2011-02-26

In trading James Johnson to Toronto, Chicago somehow managed to somehow obtain a first round pick for a player they drafted in the mid-first round, then never played, and whose valued they crucified. It's the Thabo Sefolosha all over again, with one subtle difference; benching Johnson behind Luol Deng and Kyle Korver is entirely justified, while making Thabo sit for Adrian Griffin and Chris Duhon was not. Toronto takes a worthwhile shot at a player with size, athleticism and talent, who hasn't learnt how to put his tools together or play under control, but who now has the opportunity to learn on the job with a team not headed anywhere quickly.

   New Jersey......Toronto.......London.

When it came to the player name announcements, events went down just as they had in the first game; same players (save for Vujacic over Morrow), in the same order, with the same levels of reception. The only break from procedure came when James Johnson, the first player announced, missed his turn in the post-announcement handslaps. Julian Wright found this funny.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
