Kings acquire James Johnson from Raptors
The Kings have agreed to acquire small forward James Johnson from the Raptors for a 2014 second-round pick, a source confirmed to SI.com.
Johnson, the 16th pick in the 2009 draft, averaged 9.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 25.2 minutes last season, his first full season in Toronto after being traded from Chicago in February 2011. The 25-year-old Johnson will be added to a Sacramento frontcourt rotation that includes DeMarcus Cousins, Chuck Hayes, Jason Thompson and rookie Thomas Robinson. He will make $2.8 million in 2012-13 and become a restricted free agent next summer.
