Fantasy Impact:

In the wake of the massive loss of Kawhi Leonard, the Raptors made quick work in trying to put some pieces back together, starting with the signing of Johnson. There are certainly minutes to be had now in Toronto, especially when you consider Danny Green was also lost on Saturday, so the former 8th overall pick will have a decent shot at jumpstarting his career in a pretty interesting situation. The Raptors have been a top-five team in defensive rating in each of the past two seasons, so Johnson's abilities on that end of the floor suits their style well and could result in him earning some solid playing time.
