The rash of recent injuries has compelled the Bulls to add former-Bull Linton Johnson via a 10-day contract.
Johnson, a five-year pro, most recently played with the Charlotte Bobcats during the start of the 2008-09 campaign. He appeared in two games with the Bobcats before being waived on Nov. 19, 2008.
The Chicago native will re-join the Bulls for the second time in his career. During the 2003-04 season, he appeared in 41 games with Chicago and posted averages of 4.2 ppg and 4.5 rpg in 17.9 mpg.
With Deng and Thomas battling injuries, the Bulls needed some reinforcements. And I’m pretty sure I speak for all of us when I say nothing says playoff push like adding a guy who hasn’t played since November.
