That's a quality deal for Utah despite their depth on the wing. Johnson knows about playoff basketball, something the Jazz could use, and can play either wing position or power forward. He helped the Heat immensely with his versatility.
It's a good signing for Utah, who barely missed the postseason last year because of injuries to Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors. The Jazz can still produce up to $19 million in cap space should they find interested free agents.
Johnson averaged 13.4 points per game for Miami last year on 52 percent shooting and 42 percent 3-point shooting in 24 games. The 35-year-old, seven-time All-Star also brings a high defensive aptitude.
