Raptors sign Johnson to second 10-day

Quote:
Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - The Toronto Raptors have signed guard Trey Johnson to a second 10-day contract.

Johnson signed his first 10-day pact on January 26 and has since appeared in five games. He has averaged 4.0 points and 1.6 assists in that time.

The Jackson State product was leading the NBA Development League in scoring this season, averaging 25.8 points for the Bakersfield Jam.

I like him. I wouldn't mind him and Barbosa backing up Bayless as our point guard combo to be honest.

What exactly did you like? He is not a point guard (true, this would make him a perfect backup for Bayless and Barbosa, since neither are they), he missed way more shots than he made and he didn't do much at the defensive end. What gives?

I REALLY want to trade Jose?

More seriously I want to turn the reigns over to Bayless. If we have a future PG star on this team he's it...only way to find out is to start him and give him big minutes.

Also seriously I think Johnson would settle in if he had a defined role. We know he can shoot and he's not the worst defender on the team.

How is Weems regressing? Being injured doesn't mean you regressed.

Too many Johnsons. It's confusing. I see Trey diving on the floor and I automatically think it's Amir. Then I have to feel dumb for forgetting there is another Johnson. He'll have to go.

defensively, he hasn't played like he did last year, as well as taking more shots, more jumpshots, and not knowing his role... I'd say that's a regression.

We can disagree, it's cool.

Bargs has been a really bad chucker recently. He's a black hole like no other.

It's like sometimes he has the green light, and whenever he touches the ball he takes a shot. Then other times he has the red light, and he's just making the easy pass every time.

I swear you can tell that Jay's said "Bargs has got to get some more shots", so he just jacks it up every damn time, then Jay says "OK, Bargs, you're laying bricks out there you got to cut it out", so Bargs disappears from the game entirely.

There doesn't seem to be any balance, so he goes on streaks all the time. It would be nice if he'd space out his shots a little more evenly - maybe set up his teammates for scores more often. Maybe he could run some pick and rolls with Amir and Ed Davis in the high post. Not that it would work right away - just to do something different than the old isolation then easy pass, or isolation then contested shot.

There's also a lot of low percentage shots he takes - he ends up just shooting over guys way to often. Or that pull up jumper he takes (that Leo loves). He never really gets his balance on that shot. Also, his turnaround from 20, or pump fake and look for contact. He shouldn't be taking those shots with more than 5-10 seconds left on the shot clock. Less than that, fine. That's what the chucker's role is. To take that <5 second shot when no one else can find a gap in the defense. Every team needs a chucker, Bargs just doesn't seem to be timing his chucks properly.

That's OT, though.

I don't think Trey's an official chucker yet. He seems to be having a hard time finding his offense in the NBA. Give it a few more appearances before he is crowned with the chucker mantle.

Same. Trey Johnson does not look natural on the court. A lot of his plays are forced.

Bayless is a 2 and so is is johnson why are so many on here forcing playeers to be what their not. Just because they are young like in Bayles case makes them better ???? ...not. The more that Bayless plays the more he shows the world hes no pg. Hell Armstrong is so selective when he describes bayleess that its a shame because armstrong things he stinks as does matty.
