Boston Celtics buyout candidate Joe Johnson reportedly to sign with Houston Rockets
The Houston Rockets didn't make any moves at the trade deadline this week, but that isn't stopping Darryl Morey from adding assets to his team fighting for the top spot in the Western Conference.
Johnson was already bought out from his contract with the Sacramento Kings after being one of the moving parts in Thursday's blockbuster three-team trade that sent George Hill and Rodney Hood to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Joe Johnson has committed to signing with Houston once his buyout is complete with Sacramento, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Sacramento has Vince Carter to mentor the younger players, so the Kings chose to part ways with Johnson. Johnson was the 10th overall pick in the 2001 Draft by the Boston Celtics. He also played for Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni in three season in Phoenix.
Johnson went on to find a lot of success in Atlanta and Brooklyn before bouncing around the last few years.
Johnson appeared in 32 games for Utah and averaged 7.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 21.9 minutes per game. It's tough to say without getting him into this environment, and it's a reasonable, low-priced gamble for Houston. Or maybe the 36-year-old will is just washed up. Johnson was rumored to be willing to sign with the Rockets, as Wojnarowski's colleague Brian Windhorst said on the set of The Jump.
