Top Stanley Johnson News

  • Stanley Johnson: Let go by Utah

    The Jazz waived Johnson on Friday, Sarah Todd of The Deseret News reports.

    Johnson was traded from the Lakers to the Jazz back in August. The 2015 No. 8 pick played 48 games for the Lakers last season and averaged 6.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.9 steals in 22.8 minutes. While Johnson has improved his efficiency and defense, he finds himself looking to join his fourth team in three seasons.

  • Jazz's Stanley Johnson: Traded to Utah

    Johnson and Talen Horton-Tucker were traded from the Lakers on Thursday to the Jazz for Patrick Beverley, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Johnson is somewhat of a throw-in for this deal. He's 26 years old and doesn't quite fit Utah's rebuilding mindset, but the Jazz may opt to hold onto him and give him minutes to rehab more of his value. Johnson -- the former No. 8 pick in the 2015 Draft -- has struggled to find a consistent role in the NBA across four prior stops. Last year with the Lakers was a bounceback, and he found success playing a defensive role while sometimes portraying a big on offense. However, even with a potentially-increased role in Utah, it's unlikely Johnson will be with a roster spot in fantasy. He's never returned top-200 value in eight-category roto formats on a per-game basis, even when he saw 27.4 minutes for a Detroit team that drafted him.
