Rockets apparently interested in signing Tyler Johnson for reboot of play
The Houston Firecrackers are wanting to potentially enhance their lineup in preparation for the NBA’s scheduled restart later on this summertime, and one complimentary representative in particular appears to have their attention.
Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reported Friday that the Rockets are weighing a number of alternatives for a lineup move ahead of the restart of play in Orlando, consisting of signing veteran guard Tyler Johnson.
Johnson, 28, struggled this season in a lowered function for the Phoenix Suns, balancing 5.7 points and 1.6 helps in 16.6 minutes per game before being waived in February. He formerly had interest from some top contenders though and would be eligible to participate in the Orlando reboot.
Feigen also keeps in mind that the Firecrackers would have to launch a player in order to make any lineup addition. The NBA is apparently preparing to permit teams to carry 17 players to a roster for Orlando (instead of the typical 15) however has yet to come to a main arrangement with the NBPA. Regardless, Johnson could have a good chance to contribute for the Firecrackers if they sign him, as head coach Mike D’Antoni may be preparing to tweak his rotation strategy.
