Johnson and the Kings have reportedly reached an agreement on a buyout and he will sign with the Rockets for the rest of the season. The guard/forward has finalized a contract buyout with the Sacramento Kings.

Should Johnson wind up in Boston (20th in offensive rating), it will represent a reunion after the Celtics selected him 10th overall in the 2001 draft and subsequently traded him to the Phoenix Suns 48 games into his rookie season.

On Monday morning, the Times have revealed that Kevin De Bruyne has overtaken Leo Messi in one key stat after Leicester. I am playing this way because the team is playing this way. "It makes it easier for me, it makes it easier for them.

"Johnson might not supplant Gerald Green's current role as a shooter off the bench, or they could trade places on a game-to-game basis depending on which player is effective". Joe Johnson has averaged 16.2 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists over his career. Joe shot 41.1 percent from downtown past year and he is just 39 3-pointers away from becoming the ninth player to make 2,000 in National Basketball Association history. "Johnson also played more power forward than small forward with Utah this season, and it's presumable he'll fill some small ball lineups when used, just like P.J. Tucker and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute have all season for the Rockets", Tim Cato wrote in his column for SB Nation. In fact, D'Antoni will have trouble finding any minutes for Johnson with a completely healthy roster. It's a smart signing by Houston to add a proven playoff performer in Johnson, but it does not boost Johnson's limited fantasy value. This is a great signing by the Houston Rockets.
