  • Chris Johnson: Doesn't make Rockets' roster
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson was let go by the Rockets on Friday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Johnson seemingly couldn't impress the Houston brass enough to make the team. He last played in the NBA back in 2015-16, when he averaged 2.9 points per game.

  • Johnson is expected to sign a partially guaranteed contract with the Rockets on Friday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. After spending his first four years in the league with five different organizations, Johnson was unable to find any suitors last season and spent the 2016-17 campaign in the G-League instead. While playing in 32 games with Rio Grande Valley, Johnson averaged 13.5 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.0 steal across 31.8 minutes. The fact that Johnson only received a partial guarantee means he'll have to battle for a roster spot throughout training camp. That said, the 27-year-old forward may eventually have to settle for another year in the G-League or overseas.

  • Chris Johnson: Waived by Jazz
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Jazz opted to waive Johnson on Saturday, David Locke of WeAreUtahJazz.com reports. Johnson was buried on the depth chart throughout training camp, and never figured to have much of a shot at making the final roster. The 26-year-old will likely end up in the D-League, and look for another opportunity from there.

  • Johnson isn't expected to crack the Jazz's 15-man roster for the start of the season, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports. After the Jazz signed second-round draft pick Joel Bolomboy earlier this weekend, the team now has 17 players under contract heading into training camp. Since the Jazz are particularly deep at the small forward spot after adding Joe Johnson to the ranks earlier this offseason, Johnson, a minor role player last season, appears most at risk of missing out on a roster berth. Unless Johnson has an outstanding training camp, it's unlikely the Jazz will be anxious to clear room for him after he shot just 37.1 percent from the field across his 70 appearances in 2015-16.

  • Johnson averaged just over 12 minutes on the court in 70 appearances for Utah during the 2015-16 season. Johnson provided the Jazz with depth off the bench for much of the season while Gordon Hayward and Joe Ingles remaining relatively healthy for much of the year. At 25 years old, Johnson has already been deployed by five different NBA teams over his first four years in the league and could be in store for yet another destination next season as he heads into free agency this offseason. Regardless of where the former Dayton standout ends up, Johnson will likely assume a limited role yet again as an athletic small forward who struggles with shooting efficiency.
