The pick is the Miami Heat‘s first-round selection this year, which is owned by the Raptors.
Johnson was selected in the first round of the 2009 draft by the Bulls out of Wake Forest, but the 6-foot-9 small forward has averaged career totals of just 3.8 points and 1.9 rebounds per game.
“It [stinks],” Bulls center Joakim Noah said. “I consider J.J. a little brother. But he wasn’t playing a lot, and I wish him nothing but the best. And I hope that he gets an opportunity to get out there on the court and show what kind of player he is.”
The Bulls face the Raptors on Wednesday.
ESPN The Magazine’s Ric Bucher first reported the move.

While we all associate the NBA dunk contest with high-flying acrobatics and gravity-defying thinking, I have always wondered about those players that are not as gifted, not as agile and the inability to jump high (like me). While browsing through a forum I frequently visit, I bumped into the bizarro world of dunking. The anti-dunking A.K.A getting stuffed by the rim. I found myself crying with laughter but also finding solace in the fact that NBA players can feel what I have felt all my life, the inability to fly.
Without further ado, I present to you the Geroge Costanza’s of the Dunk Contest, aptly named the Anti-Dunk Contest.
