Stanley Johnson signs with Raptors

Stanley Johnson has agreed to a two-year $7.5 million contract with the Toronto Raptors. The 23-year-old has an option on the second year of the deal.

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.

Stanley Johnson signs with the Raptors

Stanley Johnson has agreed to a two year, $7.5M million deal with the Raptors.

Fantasy Impact

After losing Kawhi Leonard to the Clippers, the Raptors signed Johnson to shore up its wing depth. He is more known for his defense, but will have a fresh start in Toronto. Johnson averaged 6.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 0.9 steals in 66 games for the Pistons/Pelicans last season.

Stanley Johnson has qualifying offer declined

Stanley Johnson had his qualifying offer declined and will become a free agent.

Fantasy Impact

The Pelicans have a wealth of young talent, and the move to decline Johnson's qualifying offer wasn't overly surprising. Johnson is known more for his defensive skills, and could draw interest from several teams looking to add wing depth. Johnson averaged 6.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 66 games for the Pistons/Pelicans last season.

Stanley Johnson nets 13 points against Rockets

Stanley Johnson put up 13 points to go with five rebounds, one dime and one steal in 23 minutes on the floor against the Rockets on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson has been seeing solid minutes over the past couple of games, scoring 15.5 points in 25.5 minutes per game during the two-game span. If he can weasel himself a little niche in the plagued NO back-court, Johnson could be a decent late-season add.

Stanley Johnson leads Pelicans in scoring on Wednesday

Stanley Johnson led the Pelicans in scoring on Wednesday against the Magic with 18 points on 6-of-13 shooting. Johnson added four rebounds, three assists, two three-pointers, and two steals in 28 minutes.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson will be a decent fantasy option the rest of the season as both Jrue Holiday and E'Twaun Moore sit out with injuries/rest. Continue to fire up Johnson as a daily punt play.
