Johnson’s minimum salary contract didn’t include any guaranteed money, so the Kings aren’t on the hook to the player for any cash. Johnson was a longshot to make the regular season roster with Sacramento’s depth in the backcourt, so the team parting ways with him isn’t surprising.
In parts of three NBA seasons, Johnson has appeared in 23 contests, averaging 2.6 PPG, 0.9 RPG, and 0.7 APG. The 6’5″ shooting guard’s career slash line is .385/.333/.947. He has also spent parts of four seasons in the D-League, turning in his best season as a professional in a 2010/11 campaign in which he averaged 25.5 PPG.
