Raptors F Amir Johnson Signs Five-Year Deal Worth $34 Million
Forward Amir Johnson has agreed to a five-year contract to stay with the Toronto Raptors.
Agent Kevin Bradbury says Thursday the deal is for $34 million.
The 6-foot-9 Johnson played in all 82 games last season, averaging 6.2 points. He spent his first four seasons in Detroit after the Pistons picked him out of high school late in the second round of the 2005 draft.
I know you guys are thinking why in the world would the Raptors give Johnson $34 million dollars and he only averaged 6.2 points per game? Well this move had to have been made because he will be taking over for the departing Chris Bosh in 2010-11. So Johnson will earn every penny of this contract
