Lemon was waived by the Bulls on Saturday, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
With the Bulls adding some depth over the offseason, Lemon's spot on the roster was no longer safe. It appears he'll still play for the Bulls during summer league, however.
Lemon totaled 20 points (9-19 FG, 2-2 3Pt), six rebounds and four assists over 28 minutes in the Bulls' loss to the 76ers on Wednesday.
Lemon played a total of six games for the Bulls after being signed from the G League, and he had solid numbers. In those six games, he averaged 14.3 points, 5.0 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.8 steals.
Lemon registered eight points (4-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt), eight rebounds, five assists and two steals across 30 minutes in the Bulls' 116-96 loss to the 76ers on Saturday.
Lemon's accuracy took a dive Saturday, but his work elsewhere still led him to a productive line. The 26-year-old has now alternated two strong shooting efforts with a pair of 25.0 percent tallies over the last four games, but he's averaging an impressive 14.3 points, 6.0 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 2.8 steals across 30.3 minutes during his brief stint with Chicago. Lemon should continue seeing extended minutes during the Bulls' final two games.
Lemon supplied 24 points (11-16 FG, 2-2 FT), eight assists, three rebounds, and two steals in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 115-114 win over the Wizards.
Lemon amassed career highs in scoring and assists in this his third NBA appearance. While he delivered a dud (three-of-12 from the field) in Monday's loss to the Knicks, Lemon was absolutely electric in this one. Unless Zach LaVine (thigh) or Kris Dunn (back) return to the lineup in the near future, Lemon is likely to continue shouldering a large load offensively as the starting point guard.
Lemon will start Monday's game against the Knicks, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
After a strong performance in his Bulls debut, Lemon will join the starters for Monday's game against the Knicks. The Bulls are dealing with a number of injuries, with most of their usual starters out, so Lemon could potentially remain with the starters for the remaining five games. Lemon saw 31 minutes in his debut, and should be in line for a similar, if not larger, role now that he's with the starters.
Lemon came away with 19 points (8-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-5 FT), six assists, four rebounds, four steals, and one block in 31 minutes during Saturday's 124-101 loss to the Raptors.
Lemon made his season debut for the Bulls on Saturday, turning in a gem of a performance. He poured in a career-high 19 points, adding career-high numbers in rebounds, assists, and steals. In fact, prior to Saturday, he had scored a total of 17 points in his entire NBA career. The Bulls signed him for the remainder of the season and will likely want to see what they have. He should at least be in the rotation to finish the season but would need to do this again to be considered viable.
Lemon will sign a contract with the Bulls for the remainder of the season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Half of the Bulls' roster is dealing with an injury, so Lemon will be added for depth. He hasn't racked up NBA minutes this season, but he played 35 total minutes for the Pelicans last year, accumulating 17 points, five assists, two rebounds and a block.
Lemon Jr. finished Sunday's 120-105 win over Santa Cruz with 21 points (8-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 14 assists, six rebounds, two steals and a blocked shot.
Lemon Jr. has been unquestionably one of the best G League acquisitions this season, thriving to the tune of 19.0 points, 9.2 assists, 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 26 games with Windy City. While it remains unclear why Maine let the sterling guard leave, it's hard to argue his impact with the team from the Central. Lemon Jr. appears to be blocked with the likes of guards Kris Dunn and Zach LaVine occupying both starting guard spots at the NBA level, but the likes of Ryan Arcidiancono, Shaquille Harrison, Antonio Blakeney and Rawle Alkins could have some more competition for minutes should Lemon Jr. ever receive a call-up.
Lemon Jr. finished Tuesday's win over the Herd with 18 points (8-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-6 FT), 15 assists, five rebounds and three steals.
The G League mid-season All-NBA guard certainly finished on a strong note, acting as the primarily facilitator on a night where seven players posted double-digit points, but only one exceeded 20. Lemon Jr. has been a revelation for the Bulls since his release from Boston and likely could be a candidate to be called up at some point in the ensuing weeks.
Lemon Jr. finished Monday's win with 24 points (10-19 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-7 FT), eight assists, seven rebounds and a steal.
Lemon Jr. has accumulated himself nicely with Windy City, developing into arguably the team's only consistent offensive threat on a night to night basis. With a plethora of young guards currently on the NBA roster, it seems unlikely Lemon Jr. will find his way up to the Bulls at this point this season, but his continual development will be a key talking point for a Windy City squad that has come into its own in recent weeks.
Lemon Jr. scored 30 points (14-23 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with seven assists, two rebounds and two steals in the win Friday over the Bayhawks.
Lemon Jr. has developed into a certifiable star for Windy City after joining the organization in December. Through eight games, the point guard is averaging 21.2 points, 7.7 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 2.1 steals and figures to be a potential call-up for the Bulls at some point down the line.
Lemon finished with 25 points (11-19 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds, 10 assists, a steal and a block over 37 minutes Friday against Iowa.
Lemon pieced together an outstanding shooting outing, hitting 57.9 percent of his shots from the field including his lone 3-point attempt. He paced his team in minutes logged and finished second in points scored to CJ Fair. Lemon has been racking up points in the G League this year, averaging 21.5 points along with 7.6 assists and 4.5 boards over 15 contests.
Lemon Jr. finished Wednesday's loss to Long Island with 18 points (8-17 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 assists, four rebounds and two steals.
Lemon Jr. was quickly scooped up after being released from Boston, landing in a starting role with Windy City. Six turnovers sort of clouds the guard's debut double-double, but the 26-year-old should wind up seeing plenty of time in the starting unit moving forward.
Lemon Jr. was waived by the Celtics on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Lemon, who was on a two-way deal, did not see game action for the Celtics this season. However, in the G League, he averaged 23.5 points on 50.8 percent shooting, plus 6.4 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 2.6 steals through 10 games. This is a somewhat puzzling move as Lemon was leading the Red Claws in points, assists, steals and minutes played per game.
Lemon posted 23 points (10-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt), six rebounds and six assists over 39 minutes in Saturday's 133-105 road loss to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.
The two-way contract player continues to lead Maine in points, assists and minutes played. Unfortunately, the 6-3 point guard can't help the Red Claws on the glass, where they were once again out-rebounded by the Mad Ants. Lemon and his teammates will look to improve their 1-3 record when they travel north of the border Thursday to face the Raptors 905.
Lemon produced 23 points (9-21 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 assists and eight rebounds across a team leading 40 minutes in Thursday's 113-101 home loss to the Canton Charge.

Lemon and his Maine teammates now look to turn things around Saturday in Fort Wayne.
Lemon posted 26 points, four rebounds, three steals and one block over 41 minutes in Friday's game against Westchester.
Lemon is currently on a two-way contract with the Celtics and will be of risk to get a call-up if Boston is in need of added depth. Otherwise the former Bradley standout will seemingly be a focal point of the Red Claws' offense this season.
Lemon was assigned to the Maine Red Claws of the G-League on Monday.
With training camp in the G-League beginning this week, Lemon and teammate P.J. Dozier will head to Maine. Lemon is playing with the Celtics under a two-way contract, and he will likely spend majority of the 2018-19 season with the Red Claws.
Lemon registered 11 points (4-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-6 FT), two rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal across 12 minutes in the Celtics' 102-95 preseason loss to the Cavaliers on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old is looking to carve out a role in the backcourt rotation after a strong performance with the Pelicans-affiliated team in Las Vegas Summer League play. Lemon's minutes were the most he's seen through the first three preseason games and provided him an opportunity to put his shooting skills on display. The Bradley product is likely to get a fairly long look this preseason in order to determine whether he could offer quality depth behind Kyrie Irving and Terry Rozier at the point.
Lemon agreed to a two-way contract with the Celtics on Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.
Lemon played in five games in 2017-2018 with the Pelicans, averaging 3.4 points on 43.8 percent shooting. He is coming off summer league action with New Orleans, where he avearged 13.6 points and 6.4 assists in five games.
