Amir Johnson Signing with Raptors

By  | 

TORONTO (AP) - 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.

He could get additional playing time next season, with the Raptors expecting to lose All-Star forward Chris Bosh in free agency.
