The Chicago Bulls recently had shown interest in Rockets shooting guard Courtney Lee, but that option is now off the table, as Lee has been traded to the Boston Celtics in exchange for JaJuan Johnson, E'Twaun Moore, Sean Williams and a second round draft pick.
The Celtics continued to bolster their bench Thursday, nabbing their No. 1 free-agent target, Courtney Lee, in a sign-and-trade deal with the Houston Rockets, according to a source. The source confirmed that second-year forward JaJuan Johnson is headed to Houston as part of the deal. Fellow second-year player E'Twaun Moore and backup center Sean Williams are also headed to the Rockets along with a 2013 second-round pick that was originally Charlotte's.
Lee averaged 11.4 points and 2.7 rebounds per game for Houston during the 2011-12 season. The four-year NBA veteran is a career 38.6% three-point shooter.
