Bulls Sign Jaylen Johnson

The Bulls have signed rookie forward Jaylen Johnson to an NBA contract, the team announced today via an official press release.

Johnson, 21, has until now spent this season with Chicago’s G League affiliate, the Windy City Bulls, where he has put up averages of of 29.0 minutes, 11.7 points, 7.6 boards and 2.9 assists per game in 49 games (37 starts).

Johnson went undrafted last summer before catching on with the Bulls on a training camp deal. He was waived a few days before the regular season began.

It isn’t yet clear whether the new deal for Johnson is a 10-day contract or rest-of-season deal, but a 10-day contract would count as $46.1K towards the Bulls’ cap, while a rest-of-season pact, assuming it’s signed today, would count as $87.6K.
