This 5-foot-11 and 165 pound Washington D.C. native and Oklahoma State Cowboys basketball product John Lucas III played for a number of different NBA teams over the course of a decade long career. Lucas started out his career in the NBA during the 2005-06 season with the Houston Rockets. He would play two seasons with the Rockets, but only participated in 60 games.
The Bulls and Rockets were the only two teams that Lucas would play in more than one season with during his NBA career. The most regular season games that he played for any one team with was the Toronto Raptors (63 in one season). He also had brief stints later in his career with the Pistons, Timberwolves, and Utah Jazz.
Lucas would wind up making his return to the NBA, by joining the Bulls roster, during the 2010-11 season after stints in Italy, Spain, and China. In his first season back, he would only play in two games with the Bulls, totaling just two point and one assist. Lucas would get a bigger role off the bench for the Bulls in the following season.
In 49 games played and two starts during the 2011-12 regular season with the Bulls, Lucas averaged 7.5 points per game, 2.2 assists, 1.6 rebounds, and 0.4 steals, while shooting 40 percent from the field and 39.3 percent from beyond the arc.
As a solid shooter from downtown and a reliable floor general in a second or third unit off the bench, Lucas actually contributed a lot in his role to the Bulls in his last year in town.
