Chicago Raptors


Stanley Johnson, Matt Thomas, Alize Johnson All Join Chicago Bulls

The Chicago Bulls definitely put the labor into Labor Day.

As training camp quickly approaches, the Chicago Bulls had a busy start to their school year as they added a number of former Toronto Raptors to bolster their forward depth.

After being waived by the Brooklyn Nets as a by-product of a roster crunch, Alize Johnson secured a two year, $3.6M deal with the Bulls. The former Raptors forward showed out in the G League last season before showing glimpses of potential as a member of the Nets, including putting together a 20-point, 21-rebound performance against the Indiana Pacers.

The Bulls were not done there.

Chicago went right back to the former Raptors unemployment line and added forward Stanley Johnson. The No. 8 overall pick in the 2015 NBA draft has bounced around the league a little bit and spent last season with the Raptors, earning more playing time once the Raptors fell out of contention.

The Bulls also added former Raptors sharpshooter Matt Thomas and along with DeMar DeRozan, the Bulls are one player away from potentially being able to field an all-former Raptors lineup at some point during this coming season.
