With Thursday afternoon marking the NBA trade deadline, former UNC forward Brice Johnson found himself on the move for the second time in less than two weeks.
The former First Team All-American was sent from the Detroit Pistons to the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for forward James Ennis and a second-round draft pick.
This comes just days after Johnson was included as part of the trade that sent All-Star forward Blake Griffin from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Pistons.
He did not play a single game for Detroit, and has played in just 12 NBA games to this point in his career–averaging just 1.8 points per outing–after injuries affected the majority of his rookie season.
Johnson was originally drafted in the first round (25th overall) by the Clippers in the 2016 NBA Draft after helping lead the Tar Heels to the NCAA Championship Game as a senior in Chapel Hill.
Brice Johnson reacted to his trade on Twitter.
