Amir Johnson has agreed to a one-year, $11 million deal with the 76ers. The 76ers come up with another master stroke on their cap usage with another one-year deal, and they still have close to $16 million to give Robert Covington on an extension. As for Johnson, he'll obviously be coming off the bench and add some frontcourt depth likely when the 76ers go up against bigger lineups. This move is somewhat interesting because there is depth at the five with Richaun Holmes and Jahlil Okafor, so keep an eye out for what that could mean for Okafor.

The Celtics could look to execute a sign-and-trade deal with UFA Amir Johnson, according to Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe. You can bet that any potential move that could net Danny Ainge additional flexibility and/or assets is a move Boston will explore. To be clear, there is absolutely nothing imminent on this front.

The Sixers are expected to make a strong push for Amir Johnson. Johnson started 77 games for the Celtics last season, averaging 6.5 points (on 57.6 percent shooting) and 4.6 rebounds in 20.1 minutes. The Sixers have decent depth up front, but could use a reliable veteran to back up both the power forward and center spots. Johnson is a banger who is unafraid to do the dirty work in the paint.

The Bulls, Nets and Raptors are suitors to sign Amir Johnson, according to ESPN NY's Ian Begley. The Raptors have been in the mix for a while and could be set for a reunion. Johnson is 30 years old now, and he really maxes out at around 20 minutes per game these days. He'll likely serve as depth on most teams.

Amir Johnson and the Raptors are strongly considering a reunion, according to Sean Deveney of the Sporting News. Johnson is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. Before playing for the Celtics the last two years, he spent six seasons in Toronto, from 2009 through 2015. Johnson started 77 games for the C's last season but was saw hs role dimish greatly in the playoffs. The Raps first order of business this summer will be re-signing Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka, but apparently, there is also mutual interest between Toronto and Johnson.

Amir Johnson scored one point with three rebounds in six minutes against the Cavs on Thursday. He didn't play in the first half and wasn't really in the rotation until this game got out of hand. Johnson is going to be a free agent this summer and it's possible the Celtics don't bring him back after an underwhelming finish to his season.
