Well this comes as no surprise to me, since you know I really like James Johnson. However, DX confirms the Bulls are into Johnson as well. He'd be an awesome fit if the unlikely event that the Shaq trade went through.
From Jonathan Givony's blog about the combine.
-James Johnson is being knocked by some teams
for not being very impressive in their interview sessions, but others
are wondering if those are the same franchises that appear to be most
interested in him at this point. We're hearing that Phoenix at 14,
Detroit at 15 and Chicago at 16 all like him quite a bit, and there are
some question marks about whether there are smokescreens being placed
in order to cause him to fall.
"He was great in the interview we did with him. Seems like a really
nice kid," one team that sat down with him here in Chicago said. "I'm
not really sure where that stuff is coming from." Johnson is being
knocked by some for not always being terribly enthusiastic about
practice, and also for butting heads with Wake Forest head coach Dino
Gaudio and teammate Jeff Teague at times.
Johnson is my second favorite prospect of the guys I've reviewed from 10-30 or so.
