Suns Sign Cameron Johnson, Ty Jerome, Jalen Lecque

First-round pick Cameron Johnson has signed his rookie scale contract with Phoenix, according to the NBA’s transactions log.

The Suns selected the sharpshooting forward out of North Carolina with the No. 11 pick after trading down from No. 6 in a deal with the Timberwolves. The move represented the biggest surprise in the lottery.

Terms of Johnson’s contract weren’t announced, but under the rookie scale he is eligible to earn $4,033,440, $4,235,160, $4,437,000 and $5,887,899 in his first four seasons.

Phoenix also signed the 24th pick, Ty Jerome, who was acquired in a trade with the Celtics, and Jalen Lecque, who agreed to sign with the Suns shortly after he went undrafted (Twitter link). Like Johnson, Jerome will get a standard rookie scale contract, but terms of Lecque’s deal aren’t known.

    That’s wayyyy more money than the kid expected to get going into the draft. Most mocks had him as high as 20 to as low as early 2nd round. Great shooter. Seems like a good kid. I wish him well. Was hoping he’d last until the Cavs drafted at 26 but good for him going at 11.
