Johnson totaled 20 points (9-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks over 33 minutes in the Kings' 98-96 overtime loss to the Cavaliers on Friday in a Las Vegas Summer League consolation game. Johnson capped off summer league play with a loaded stat line, including a team-high 20 points. He spent his rookie season in 2018 bouncing around with 10-day contracts and G League action, finishing the year with only 49 minutes in seven NBA games. He'll hope to have some staying power in the NBA next season, possibly with Sacramento.
Johnson was recalled from the G League on Wednesday, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports. Johnson will be with the Kings on Thursday when they face the Cavaliers. It's possible he makes his Kings debut.
Johnson signed with the Kings for the remainder of the season Tuesday and will be immediately assigned to the G League, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports. Johnson most recently signed a pair of 10-day contracts with the Hawks, but he only ended up seeing limited action with the team. It doesn't appear Johnson will play with the Kings with the regular season drawing to a close, but he will likely get a bump in salary while getting to finish out the G League playoffs with Lakeland.
Johnson signed a second 10-day contract with the Hawks on Tuesday, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports. Johnson scored 11 points in his NBA debut last Sunday, but he has only scored six points across 21 minutes in his last four games. He'll have one more stretch to prove his worth to Atlanta before they have to decide to let him go or sign him for the remainder of the season.
Johnson recorded 11 points (4-4 FG, 3-3 3Pt), two rebounds, and one steal in 19 minutes during Sunday's 123-118 win over the Bulls. Johnson enjoyed a perfect night from the field in his NBA debut. The 23-year-old rookie is on a 10-day contract, so this was a good first step in his quest to stick for the remainder of the season.
