A free agent for the first time, James Johnson has yet to land a deal with an NBA team, but will look to make an impression in upcoming workouts with three clubs, according to Shams Charania of RealGM.com. Charania reports that Johnson will work out for the Spurs, Jazz, and Hawks in hopes of receiving a contract offer.
Johnson, 26, has spent time with the Bulls, Raptors, and Kings since making his NBA debut in 2009, averaging 6.3 PPG, 3.2 RPG, and a 12.4 PER in 219 career contests. Johnson's trade history is indicative of his slipping stock; a year and a half after being selected 16th overall by Chicago, the 6'9" forward was sent to Toronto for a first-round pick that landed at No. 28, then was eventually flipped to Sacramento for a 2014 second-rounder.
The Spurs, Jazz, and Hawks all currently have between 12 and 14 guaranteed contracts on their books for 2013/14, so there'd be room for Johnson to earn a roster spot on any of the three clubs, if he were to sign with one of them.
