Lemmon is an alright energy guy but he hasn't developed an offensive game and was being outplayed by two guys drafted behind him in Carnevale and Berisha. Heffernan is a bigger guy who can fill the same role as Lemmon.
Thing is Lemmon was a better skater and faster than Heffernan and generally a more skilled guy growing up but was stuck in a 4rth line role which for the 2nd year would be poor usage for a 2nd round pick. Getting a good pick back for him a few years from now is a smart choice as Bulls have stockpiled picks to some degree and are still trying to find ice for the existing group of rookies.
