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.
The Milwaukee Bucks have signed forward Chris Johnson to a 10-day contract, General Manager John Hammond announced today. Johnson is the 44th Gatorade Call-Up of the 2014-15 NBA Development League season. Johnson, 24, most recently played for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the NBA D-League where he’s averaged 20.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.5 steals in 17 appearances. He began the season with the Philadelphia 76ers, where he appeared in nine games (two starts) and averaged 6.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.0 steals per contest before being waived on Nov. 15. Johnson also signed a 10-day contract with the Utah Jazz on Jan. 28 and appeared in two games, tallying 14 points, three rebounds, three assists and three steals.
