Minnesota is trading James Johnson to Oklahoma City as part of the Ricky Rubio trade, sources tell The Athletic NBA and Stadium. James Johnson also opted into his $16M deal for 2020-21 season.
ANALYSIS: James Johnson was having a great second half of the season with Minnesota before the season got suspended. Johnson was averaging 12 points per game on 50% shooting from the field to go along with 4.7 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.4 steals per game.
Although these numbers are taken from a sample size of just 14 games, Johnson has remained effective throughout his 10 year NBA career and could play heavy minutes with the Thunder if they end up keeping him.
