The Chicago Bulls have agreed to a deal with veteran forward Stanley Johnson, per a report from Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.

Johnson, 25, was the eight overall pick in the 2015 draft.

Through six years in the NBA, Johnson averaged 6.2 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game on 38% shooting from the field.

Johnson is regarded as a defensive specialist with above-average athleticism.

The Bulls have a need for a defensive wing to play behind Zach LaVine, Demar DeRozan, and Patrick Williams.

Johnson will likely compete for minutes with Troy Brown Jr., Derrick Jones Jr., and rookie Ayo Dosonmu.
