Raptors Raptors sign Trey Johnson, release Gaines

Quote:
Trey Johnson has paid his dues in the NBA D-League for at least part of the past four seasons, and it looks it's finally paid off. According to a source close to the situation, the 26-year-old Johnson has been called up by the Toronto Raptors for a 10-day contract.

Johnson, the D-League's leading scorer, is averaging 25.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists while making 51 percent of his attempts from the field this season. In 101 career D-League games, all with the Bakersfield Jam, Johnson's posted averages of 20.2 points, 4.7 assists and 3.8 rebounds. He also earned two 10-day contracts with the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2008-09 season, but appeared in just four games for 14 minutes total

Aggressive and exceptionally smart, Johnson has always been known for his jump shot. His ability to knock down shots from the midrange made him a terror to defend at the college level, and remains a staple of his offensive arsenal. He shows excellent body control when pulling up off the dribble, seldom showing any inconsistencies in his form. In addition to very good footwork and great elevation, Johnson has also gotten considerably better at choosing his spots, utilizing the same polished ball fakes and jab steps that he did as a collegiate to create enough space to get his shot off. When he’s not going one-on-one, Johnson shows great poise on the pick and roll, recognizing when he can use the screen most effectively to create space. The footwork and patience he shows running the pick and roll is extremely impressive, as is his ability to feed the post and find his shooters spotting up on the wing.

Johnson showed his most promising development this week when getting to the basket. Not blessed with great quickness or explosiveness, Johnson has clearly spent some time developing his floater, which allows him to score efficiently around the rim. He’s a bit more aggressive when driving the ball all the way to the rim then he was two seasons ago, showing the same fearlessness that earned him more than 9 trips to the line each game during his final season at Jackson State. Still only a decent finisher due to his average leaping ability, Johnson also offers some value in mismatch situations, having the ability to beat bigger defenders off the dribble and take smaller guards down low to utilize a couple of polished post moves.

In addition to the strides Johnson has made offensively, he’s taken some small steps on the defensive end. Not blessed with the lateral quickness or length necessary to force many turnovers, Johnson plays a solid, but unspectacular brand of defensive. Giving his man a cushion to help himself prevent dribble penetration, the biggest improvement in Johnson’s defense is on the pick and roll, where he is much better at getting over screens and using his body than he once was. He still lets his man beat him off the dribble periodically, and needs to show more consistent focus, but his time with the Cavaliers appears to have been a positive experience for him in terms of defensive development.

For a team that doesn't like to spend money we sure like to sign 10 dayers!

So there you (last post)... this is why he's not in the NBA. He's not particularly athletic nor a particularly good defender. He could help right now since we're so hurt but once guys like Barbosa and Weems get back, who are very athletic and capable defenders I can't see him getting any burn.

I liked the write up Acie posted... it shows he's committed to at least improving defensively... and also his patience on P+R makes him seem like he's not just about getting himself free for a look.

i wonder if BC will ever realize that teams that make it to the conference finals, and the finals are almost always a top tier defensive team.

Some of you dudes take stuff like this way too seriously. Barbosa is out, Weems is out, Jose and Bayless are still hobbled, so I don't care if the guy is any good or not and it's better than seeing Bayless forced to play SF again.
