  • Spurs' Alize Johnson: Lands one-year deal with Spurs

    Johnson signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Spurs on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Johnson split last season among three different NBA clubs but didn't etch out double-digit minutes with any of them. He will presumably serve in a similar role with the Spurs in 2022-23 as frontcourt bench depth.

  • Pelicans' Alize Johnson: Back in New Orleans

    Johnson re-signed Saturday with the Pelicans via a hardship exception, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    New Orleans cut Johnson on Friday just one day before his initial 10-day deal was set to expire, but he'll be eligible to rejoin the team one day later after the Pelicans were granted an exemption for CJ McCollum's COVID-19-related absence. Johnson made three appearances during his initial 10-day contract and accumulated nine points and 12 rebounds across 25 minutes during that span.

  • Alize Johnson: Let go by New Orleans

    Johnson was released by the Pelicans on Friday, Andrew Lopez of reports.

    Johnson made three appearances for the Pelicans during his 10-day contract, totaling nine points and 12 rebounds across 25 minutes. His release makes room for New Orleans to add Tyrone Wallace via a 10-day contract. Lopez adds that the Pelicans will be eligible to bring Johnson back via a hardship contract in the next couple of days, but it remains unclear if that's in the Pelicans' plans.

  • Pelicans' Alize Johnson: Signs 10-day deal with New Orleans

    Johnson signed a 10-day contract with the Pelicans on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Johnson has previously spent time with Chicago and Washington this season and averaged 1.7 points and 2.5 rebounds in 7.3 minutes per game over 19 appearances. The fourth-year big man is expected to serve as a depth option for New Orleans, but he's unlikely to garner extensive playing time.

  • Alize Johnson: Let go by Washington

    The Wizards terminated Johnson's 10-day contract Thursday, Keith Smith of reports.

    Washington cut Johnson loose a day before his contract was set to expire, allowing him to get an early head start on finding work elsewhere. During his brief time with the Wizards, Johnson appeared in three games and averaged 1.3 points and 4.0 rebounds in 6.0 minutes.

  • Wizards' Alize Johnson: Nabs rotation spot in first game

    Johnson played nine minutes off the bench Tuesday in his Wizards debut, finishing with four points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT), eight rebounds and three turnovers in Washington's 119-112 loss to Miami.

    Before the Bulls waived him Sunday, Johnson hadn't played since Dec. 11 while he was one of several Chicago players in the COVID-19 health and safety protocols. He cleared the protocols one day before being let go by Chicago and was thus able to quickly link up with a new team. While Washington deals with its own COVID-19 outbreak, Johnson looks like he'll have a spot in the rotation for the time being. The Wizards could get the likes of Bradley Beal, Montrezl Harrell and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope out of the protocols by the time Johnson's 10-day deal lapses, so the 25-year-old big man isn't a safe bet to be re-signed by Washington.

  • Wizards' Alize Johnson: Joins Wizards on 10-day deal

    Johnson signed a 10-day contract with the Wizards on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Johnson was waived by Chicago just two days ago, but he cleared waivers Tuesday afternoon and will meet the Wizards in Miami, where he'll be in uniform for Tuesday night's game. The Wizards are currently dealing with several COVID-related absences, including Montrezl Harrell, Rui Hachimura and Anthony Gill, so Johnson could factor into the rotation right away.

  • Alize Johnson: Cut by Chicago

    The Bulls waived Johnson on Sunday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Johnson appeared in 16 contests for the Bulls this season, averaging 1.8 points and 2.3 rebounds across 7.6 minutes per game. The 2018 second-round pick was removed from the league's COVID-19 protocols Thursday, but with several other Bulls healthy and available again, Johnson was deemed expendable.

  • Bulls' Alize Johnson: Available Sunday

    Johnson (COVID-19 protocols) is off the injury report for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

    Johnson's role has been relatively small all season. His return shouldn't affect the team's rotation significantly.

  • Bulls' Alize Johnson: Exits protocols

    Johnson (COVID-19 protocols) has exited protocols and could return Sunday against the Pacers, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.

    All Bulls players cleared protocols Thursday, which is a great sign for things returning to normal for Chicago for Sunday's contest against the Pacers. Johnson himself will likely go back to only a fringe role.

  • Bulls' Alize Johnson: Out through Christmas

    Johnson (COVID-19 protocols) will remain out past Christmas, Jamal Collier of reports.

    This makes sense given that we know Johnson tested positive. Zach LaVine and Ayo Dosunmu are also going to be out until after Christmas due to protocols.

  • Bulls' Alize Johnson: Tests positive for virus

    Johnson was placed in the NBA's health and safety protocols Monday after testing positive for COVID-19, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Johnson becomes the 10th member of the Bulls roster to enter the NBA's health and safety protocols and with Patrick Williams (wrist) also sidelined with a long-term injury, Chicago currently has the league-minimum eight players available for Tuesday's game against the Pistons. Fortunately for Chicago, the team could get some reinforcement with the potential returns of Coby White and Javonte Green, who cleared health and safety protocols Sunday but may need more time to regain conditioning. Even while Chicago was incredibly shorthanded in its most recent game Saturday against the Heat, Johnson still logged only five minutes off the bench. He'll likely be out for at least 10 days as a result of his positive test.

  • Bulls' Alize Johnson: Plays 21 minutes

    Johnson recorded nine points (4-7 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and one steal across 21 minutes during a 119-93 loss Friday against the Warriors.

    Johnson's 21 minutes were his season best. The Bulls cannot have Nikola Vucevic (COVID-19) play at least four games and roster few big men, so a 6-foot-7 Johnson could receive more playing time than he usually does. He averaged 9.8 minutes across six matchups prior to Friday's game.

  • Bulls' Alize Johnson: Grabs 11 boards Tuesday

    Johnson posted eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 17 minutes during Tuesday's 131-95 win over the Cavaliers.

    Johnson showed flashes last season with the Nets, and he's picking up where he left off. He should have a chance to be a regular part of the Bulls' rotation, as the team is thin in the frontcourt, especially with Patrick Williams (ankle) potentially missing time at the beginning of the season.

  • Bulls' Alize Johnson: Inks two-year deal with Bulls

    Johnson signed a two-year, $3.6 million contract with the Bulls on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    After revamping the roster and parting ways with both Thaddeus Young and Lauri Markkanen this offseason, the Bulls were in need of depth at forward. In response, they signed both Alize and Stanley Johnson on Monday. Neither player is a proven commodity, but Johnson -- Alize, that is -- showed some encouraging flashes while appearing in 18 games for the Nets last season. In an April 29 win over the Pacers, Johnson went off for 20 points, 21 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 32 minutes of action. While that game was a major outlier, there's some reason to believe Johnson could make an impact in Chicago if he's able to secure a consistent role. Chicago figures to lean heavily on Patrick Williams, Derrick Jones Jr. and DeMar DeRozan, but both Johnsons will compete for bench minutes alongside Troy Brown.

  • Alize Johnson: Reaches free agency

    Johnson cleared waivers Monday and is now an unrestricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The Nets cut Johnson loose over the weekend after Brooklyn needed room on the roster for LaMarcus Aldridge, who signed a one-year deal with the Nets after being medically cleared to resume his career following his brief retirement last season. Though none of the league's other 29 teams were willing to take on the money remaining on Johnson's contract, he shouldn't have much trouble finding a training-camp invite somewhere before the start of the 2021-22 season. The 6-foot-7 forward appeared in 18 games for Brooklyn last season, averaging 5.2 points and 5.0 rebounds in only 10.5 minutes per contest.

  • Nets' Alize Johnson: Expected to be waived

    Johnson will likely be waived by the Nets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The Nets are loaded at forward and will presumably let Johnson go, allowing him to attempt to find a team where he'd see regular minutes. In 10.5 minutes per game last season, he averaged 5.2 points and 5.0 rebounds.
