James Johnson signs two-year deal with Raptors

James Johnson

After re-signing Greivis Vasquez to a two-year deal, the Toronto Raptors reached a deal with forward James Johnson according to Doug Smith of the Toronto Star.

This will be Johnson’s second stint with the Raptors, and he comes in with a two-year, $5 million deal. Johnson had maturity issues and saw conflicts with head coach Dwane Case during his stop in Toronto, but the improved and matured Johnson will bring defense and toughness to the Raptors.

As Doug Smith noted in his column, the Raptors will likely be done with moves as of now, but could become more active during the season and right around the trade deadline. The Raptors finished with the third seed in the Eastern Conference last year, and won the Atlantic division.

Last season Johnson averaged 7.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 3.2 assists with the Memphis Grizzlies.
