The No. 8 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft by the Pistons, Johnson hasn’t lived up to that billing. His offensive skills – 3-point shooting, ability to handle the ball/create and even finishing at the rim – are too limited.
But his powerful athleticism allows him to carve out a role as a versatile defender. After a slow start with the Raptors, he earned stints in the rotation.
Now, he’ll try to crack Chicago’s.
