| No Comments | No TrackBacks

In some minor roster shuffling, the Bulls waived forward Linton Johnson III and guard DeMarcus Nelson. Both players participated on the Bulls summer league earlier this month.

The 6-8, 205-pound Johnson signed a 10-day contact on Mar. 11, 2009 and was re-signed to a second 10-day contract on Mar. 20, 2009. Johnson was then signed for the remainder of the season on Apr. 7, 2009. In his second stint with the Bulls, Johnson appeared in eight games and averaged 1.1 ppg and 1.0 rpg in 5.0 mpg.

The 6-4, 200-pound Nelson was acquired by the Bulls as a free agent on Apr. 4, 2009. As a Bull, Nelson posted one DNP-CD and appeared on the inactive list twice.
