    Default OFFICIAL: James Johnson sent to Kings for 2nd Rounder

    The Toronto Raptors, in a deal designed to create some additional salary-cap space, have agreed to traded forward James Johnson to the Sacramento Kings for a future second-round pick, according to sources with knowledge of the deal.

    The trade could be consummated as soon as Monday, sources said./p

    Johnson is scheduled to earn $2.8 million in 2012-13, which is the final year of his current contract./p

    The Raptors, meanwhile, continue to search for a workable trade to find a new home for veteran point guard Jose Calderon. ESPN.com reported BLANKday that the Raptors and Calderon's representatives were working on a trade together in the wake of Toronto's recent acquisition of Kyle Lowry to be the starter./p

    The Raptors have let it be known that they prefer not to release Calderon through the NBA's amnesty clause, which is only an option through Tuesday until next summer's one-week amnesty window in July 2013./p

    “We have had a few more trade inquiries regarding Jose (but) the scenario doesn’t seem to present itself to a trade today," Raptors president and general manager Bryan Colangelo told the Toronto Sun at summer league in Las Vegas. "But we’ll continue to monitor that and just try to determine whether it’s going to work in the long run./p

    As for making use of the amnesty clause before Tuesday night's deadline, Colangelo told the Sun that he doesn’t “anticipate doing something with amnesty, but until the deadline passes, you never want to close that door.”/p

    Johnson averaged 9.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 1.4 blocks per game last season but is no longer in Toronto's plans after the recent arrival of Landry Fields and Linas Kleiza's return to health.

    Really bad trade, I honestly think that there's a 5% chance we get a player of the same value as JJ in the second round.. our best wing defender, who's by no means a good/great/untradeable player, for a second round pick? Hmm... More minutes for Fields, DeRozan and Ross.

    I agree. I don't like the trade. Almost none of our 2nd rounders even get a chance to play too...

    wow didnt see that coming....well i think JJ was on his way out this off season since that incident with casey during the season. I definitly agree that this is a bad trade..but then again i dont expect a lot of value coming back for just JJ. I think BC was more concerned on getting him out than getting something back..and he prob wanted to clear cap and minutes since we got feilds. Not a fan of the move but not fully against it.

    we dont know if its straight up JJ for a second rounder i think there might be more details

    Lowry/Calderon
    Derozan/Ross
    Fields/Klezia
    Bargs/Davis/Acy
    Jval/Amir/Gray

    Thats a very deep team...and i think with a team of no superstars we can become the denver nuggets of the east.

    Does anyone think BC intentionally goes out to find anything less than the best deal in a trade?

    Could there be a possibility JJ is valued more here than by the other 29 Gm's in the league and Colangelo?

    I don't.

    I think this speaks to his value around the league and the return is what it is.

    The only way I don't see this being the case is if BC wanted no salary back to facilitate a larger move coming.
