The Chicago Bulls have signed South Bay Lakers forward Stanley Johnson, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The signing is via hardship exemption because the Bulls have several players in health and safety protocols, including DeMar DeRozan.

Johnson went to training camp with the Bulls but didn’t make the cut for the 15-man roster.

The former No. 8 overall pick in the 2015 draft joined South Bay in mid-November. In six games, Johnson averaged 15.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 2.2 steals while shooting 40.5% overall on 12.3 attempts and 28.6% from deep on 5.8 attempts.

His defensive presence at the forward position could’ve been useful for the Los Angeles Lakers, a team short on depth in that department, but that didn’t happen.
