Free agent forward James Johnson has reportedly signed with the Atlanta Hawks for presumably what amounts to a training camp invite. The news was tweeted out last night via Priority Sports Management firm:
Johnson had previously worked out with the team and we thought a training camp invite would be possible. He spent last season with the Sacramento Kings where he appeared in 54 games averaging 5.1 points per game.
Johnson is listed at 6-9, 245 lbs and was originally drafted with the 16th pick in the first round of the 2004 NBA Draft by the Chicago Bulls. His best season came in 2012 where he averaged 9.1 points and 4.7 rebounds in 62 games for the Toronto Raptors.
