Articles about Chris Johnson

January 5, 2011

Chris Johnson - Johnson has taken his training camp contract with the Boston Celtics, and turned it into a hugely productive D-League season. Starting at centre for the Dakota Wizards, Hunter is averaging 17.1 points, 9.4 rebounds and 3.1 blocks in 38 minutes per game, a lone bright spot in the Wizards's otherwise tortuous 4-13 season. Johnson is only averaging 1.3 assists per game, compared to 3.3 turnovers per game, but this is explainable with a look at the Wizards's god awful floor spacing. In 17 games, the team has hit only 40 total three pointers, shooting 23.4% as a team from downtown. Starting point guard Darren Cooper leads the team with 10 makes, but he's taken 50 tries to do it; the second leading three point shooter is his backup, Brandon Johnson, yet Johnson is shooting only 8-36 from downtown. Ironically, the team's leader in three point percentage is Johnson, who is 1-2. Johnson has always been a good jumpshooter, which, combined with his athleticism, height and shotblocking, makes him an interesting prospect in a modern NBA that favours this skillset.

9th: - Dakota Wizards - Chris Johnson, LSU

Johnson is fresh from a training camp stint with the Boston Celtics; however, he was not an allocation player of the Maine Red Claws. They instead opted for Boston's other camp cuts; Stephane Lasme, Mario West and Jamar Smith. About him in training camp, I wrote this:

Johnson is a former LSU big man who graduated in 2009, averaging 7.7ppg, 7.2rpg and 2.7bpg in his senior season. His first professional career was a disjointed affair, featuring only short stays in both Poland and Turkey, and he did not play in summer league this year. Johnson's shot blocking skills are self-evident, and he's an athletic 6'11 interior player, which is always intriguing. However, he's thin, not good at physical play, and not a good offensive player, turning it over too much and being unable to finish at high percentages around the basket. Unless it's a dunk, of course.


Johnson never played for the Celtics in preseason and thus awaits his NBA debut. Like Vernon Goodridge, he's been more potential than production thus far.
