Hearing that it's likely the Celtics will guarantee Amir Johnson's $12 million contract for next season.— Adam Himmelsbach (@AdamHimmelsbach) June 30, 2016
Good news from a pretty reliable source right here. Amir Johnson averaged 7.3 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 1.1 blkpg, in 79 appearances for the C's in the '15-'16 season.
This move isn't a surprise as Johnson had a productive year on the C's, is a great presence in the locker room, and under the new cap has an incredibly friendly contract. If Danny Ainge & Co. are able to pull off some fireworks and need his cap room they can easily deal him for all of the same reasons.
NBA Free Agency 2016 starts tonight at midnight.
