Last season as a Pacer, Johnson showed flashes of brilliance and a touch of inconsistency. He finished the year averaging just two points in 6.9 minutes per game and will look to make a bigger impact on the Raptors roster next season.
The 6’9 swingman was a second-round pick of Indiana back in 2018 and is a product of Missouri State. While he awaits bursting onto the scene in the NBA, Johnson went viral earlier this year with this heartfelt gesture for his mom.
Looks like the Raptors signed one of the good guys…
