Kevin Johnson Rumors
The former Nets coach [Avery Johnson], in fact, thinks if the Knicks stand pat at No. 9 in Tuesday’s lottery, his point guard Collin Sexton won’t even be around for Knicks president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry to bring aboard. “I think he has unbelievable potential,’’ Johnson said in a phone interview. “I played in the league, coached in the league. He’s as fast as anyone I’ve ever seen in my NBA career. I think he’s a little bit closer to Kevin Johnson speed. I know that’s a blast from the past but that type of speed with [Russell] Westbrook athleticism.’’
