Chicago Bulls added defensive-minded wing Stanley Johnson to fill the 14th spot of their roster, per Shams Charania. Johnson, the eighth overall pick in the 2015 Draft, is expected to move to the Bulls after spending last season with the Raptors.

He averaged 4.4 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.5 assists in 61 games, including 13 starts for Toronto last season. Johnson owns career averages of 6.2 points and 3.1 rebounds over six seasons with the Pistons, Pelicans, and Raptors.

The promising forward offers another wing option for the Bulls, who also have Troy Brown Jr. and Derrick Jones Jr. Johnson, 25, is more defensive – than offensive-minded, though he does possess solid athleticism.

He can definitely become a bench option for the Bulls, who are aiming to make some noise in the Eastern Conference, with players like Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan, and Nikola Vucevic as their star core.
