Bulls / Blazers still working on Rudy Fernandez trade?

Per hoopsworld:

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls are continuing their weeks-long pursuit of Fernandez, and do
have a first round pick to offer. The Bulls were rumored to be offering
James Johnson and a pick back in August, but nothing ever came of that
deal. Johnson, a second-year pro out of Wake Forest, would add
additional depth at the four spot for Portland. The Blazers, you’ll
recall, signed restricted free agent Paul Millsap to an offer sheet last
summer, only to see it matched by the Utah Jazz. The Blazers added Jeff
Pendergraph last season,  but would like to have another young prospect
at the four behind starter LaMarcus Aldridge.

The closer we get to training camp the less likely it seems that
Fernandez will be in a Blazers uniform when he returns from playing
overseas. Chicago looks like the early favorite, but the Blazers will
likely wait until the last minute to make sure no other suitors step
into the conversation.

    Does Anyone else think that maybe getting rid of James Johnson so early may a bad move? I understand that we need a consistent and athletic shooting guard who can shoot the three…Which Rudy Fernandez may fill. However James Johnson as unpolished as he seemed last year, he may still be a valuable rotation player and defensive physical and a guy who can throw his weight around on lebron and wade. I have not heard any news on how his off season conditioning has gone, if anyone has a clue please let me know.
