James Johnson lands a one-year, $4 million deal deal with , according to league sources— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 10, 2016
Johnson, a 7-year veteran played for the Raptors last year, averaging 5 PPG in 16 minutes off the bench. The deal with the Heat keeps them flexible for next year, and also gives them another body.
Although Johnson's game isn't a flashy signing, it's something Miami needs when it comes to bodies available. Chris Bosh is uncertain and Josh McRoberts usually finds a way to get hurt. Udonis Haslem is much older. The Heat need the 29 year old to provide availability in the power rotation.
The deal is part of Miami using the huge cap space void provided from Dwyane Wade's departure.
