Chris Johnson RumorsAll NBA Players
Utah only has 1-3 roster spots open — depending on if it picks up contracts for Shelvin Mack, Jeff Withey and Chris Johnson — although that figures to change with the team’s need to thin out that packed point guard platoon. The most likely scenario would seem to be trading away Trey Burke, Shelvin Mack and/or Raul Neto. Utah has plenty of money to use for a free-agent shopping spree, depending on what level of player it goes after. With Hill, the team’s guaranteed salary for next year is $64.6 million. Throw in an additional $4.5 million with the contracts of Mack, Withey and Johnson, and the Jazz are still well below 2016-17’s projected salary floor of $84.6 million and far below the $94 million salary cap and $113 million tax level.
Chris Haynes: Per @Shams Charania, #Cavs are bringing in Jack Cooley for camp. I’m told the team will waive Chris Johnson.
