Free agent forward James Johnson will attend workouts for the San Antonio Spurs, Atlanta Hawks and Utah Jazz and is hoping to leave teams impressed, league sources told RealGM.

Johnson’s ability to perform in workout settings could have one team intrigued enough to give him an opportunity, though. RealGM

After finding out the news about his teammate, rookie Thomas Robinson adhered to his coach’s message. “I think (my reaction) was pretty much, ‘We have to work and stay together as a team, come out and have a good practice,” said No. 0. Forward James Johnson echoed a similar sentiment. “I just know we have to get stronger as a team and we have to start to trust each other a lot more,” he said. “We’re going to have some guys step up, including myself, to be able to win games.” The Kings Blog
