    Default Raptors Call Up Trey Johnson, the D-League's Leading Scorer

    Don't know much about this cat, but you gotta think anything can help now.

    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.

    Johnson, a 6-foot-5 combo guard, told FanHouse following the D-League Showcase that he was ready and waiting for the right opportunity in the NBA.

    "I have a strong belief in God and, for whatever reason, I'm still here. I'm not going to accept just getting called-up, having a 10-day contract, and then coming right back down, and maybe God understands that," Johnson told FanHouse following the Showcase. "Maybe He's like 'I'm going to get him to a situation where he's going to be able to perform well; where he's going to stick and get a legitimate opportunity to go out there and do some things.' I mean, I was called up to Cleveland and I had two 10-days, but I didn't really play. I'm very thankful for the opportunity, but how legit can I really say my time in the NBA was since I didn't really get a chance to play?"

    Why not? What really do we have to lose? Who knows, the kid could be a diamond in the rough. His FG% for a guard is pretty encouraging.

    I am very excited to see him play! Let's hope for a diamond in the rough. If he wants to stick he better not use Sonny's shot selection as an NBA template.

    FWIR, Gaines isn't around. His 10-day probably will not be renewed.

    If you want to get technical, then yes, he's the NBDL's leading scorer (and probably the only person in the NBDL who averages a triple double this season), but he's only played in 3 games in comparison to Johnson's 26.
