Nba Rumors: Wesley Johnson Agrees To Sign With Clippers

Another former member of the Los Angeles Lakers has decided to take his talents across the hall at the Staples Center. Wesley Johnson has played for the Lakers for two consecutive seasons and now will leave the team in free agency in favor of a division rival.

According to Shams Charania of RealGM.com, Johnson has agreed to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers:

Back in 2010, Johnson was a lottery pick for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Minnesota selected Johnson out of Syracuse with the fourth overall pick in the NBA Draft with a lot of hope that he’d be star on the next level.

Unfortunately, Johnson didn’t make much of an impression in Minnesota or any team thereafter. In five NBA seasons, Johnson has played for four different teams and has yet to secure a long-term future in the league.

After signing consecutive one-year deals with the Lakers, Johnson will now try to fill a need for the Clippers. Johnson follows a long line of former Lakers to sign with the Clippers including Matt Barnes, Jordan Farmar, Ronny Turiaf, Sasha Vujacic, Antawn Jamison, Darius Morris and Lamar Odom.

Last season, Johnson shot 41.4 percent from the floor while averaging a career-high 9.9 points per game for the Lakers.
