Raptors trade James Johnson to Kings

The Toronto Raptors have traded forward James Johnson to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for a 2014 second-round draft pick.

"The addition of Landry Fields and Terrence Ross created some crowding at the wing positions," said Raptors president and general manager Bryan Colangelo. "This move frees up minutes for our players under contract, increases our financial flexibility and opens up a roster spot to address other needs."

Johnson averaged 9.1 points with 4.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 62 games for the Raptors last season.

The Wake Forest product has played in 165 career games with Chicago and Toronto, averaging 6.6 points and 3.4 rebounds.
