The Portland Trail Blazers are announcing that they have signed rookie guard Armon Johnson to a contract. Terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.
The Blazers took Johnson with the 34th pick of the 2010 NBA Draft. Prior to entering the draft, Johnson played three seasons at the University of Nevada, leading them in assists all three seasons. Johnson averaged an impressive 11.6 points, 4.2 assists, and 2.2 steals during his time at the Las Vegas Summer League. Not an earth-shattering signing for the Blazers, but Johnson is a solid player who will give Portland even more backcourt depth.
