2. Amir Johnson, C/PF, 31
Another tweet from Ian Begley states that New York has already reached out to veteran big man Amir Johnson. The former Celtic is coming off one of the worst seasons of his career so he should be available at a bargain price.
Johnson posted a career-low in field goal percentage and for the second straight season averaged less than five rebounds per game. He posted his lowest minutes and points totals since the 2008-09 season, his fourth in the league.
The former Sixer won’t be coming in for his stats. Clearly. This is a guy who has been around the block. He came into the league out of high school, and he’s played on four different teams in 13 seasons.
Johnson was on the Celtics team last season that went to the Eastern Conference Finals. He would bring a lot of experience and knowledge to the locker room.
