Scouting
  • Johnson is one of the seven Kentucky Wildcats to declare for the draft, and he's the one who saw the least action this season. His role in the NBA would likely be about the same, as a limited-minute role player. But I have my questions as to whether or not he'll get there, as he's a below-the-rim guy who struggled to finish in college. The key for him will be getting into better shape. If he does that, he'll have a shot to stick.
  • Johnson is a physical presence with extremely high levels of strength for his age. He's able to establish his position with ease, and it also allows him to affect shots around the rim due to his size and relative length. He has pretty good touch around the rim, and he's a physical rebounder that should translate to the NBA.
  • He's not a good athlete, as his combine numbers show. This hurts him a lot around the rim, where his below-the-rim play makes him really struggle to finish. Defensively, he doesn't move well on the perimeter and may be a liability in pick-and-roll coverage. Also, his body is a pretty serious concern, as he came into the combine overweight and out of shape, resulting in a 25-inch vertical leap.
