Amir Johnson Re-Signs With The Toronto Raptors 5yrs/34 Million!

Forward Amir Johnson has agreed to a five-year contract to stay with the Toronto Raptors.

Agent Kevin Bradbury says Thursday the deal is for $34 million.

The 6-foot-9 Johnson played in all 82 games last season, averaging 6.2 points. He spent his first four seasons in Detroit after the Pistons picked him out of high school late in the second round of the 2005 draft.

He could get additional playing time next season, with the Raptors expecting to lose All-Star forward Chris Bosh in free agency.

Junk Yard Dog 2.0 with skill to kick it up a notch, not since the JYD have we had an energetic player who is in enthusiastic about playing in Toronto, but 20 and 10 should be no issue for Amir,

Amazing to see you back with the Raps! I’m excited to see you and the other young gunz represent T-dot next year. We need a new identity now that Bosh is gone and the three of you, Sonny and Demar can step up and take it on. Keep up the hard work!

Watching the Young Guns play with chemistry relieves our pain in losing an all star. Welcome back our all-star in the make.

Hey Amir; I was excited to know that you came to TO, and elated you are staying! I have watched you since you came in the league with Detroit. I have wanted the Raptors to pick you up from time, because you fit this team very well. I actually see you eating up a lot of court time next season. Passion and instinct is something you cant teach. Make the best of it! Again congratulations!! AJ!

Thanks for being a class act during FA. It’s too bad that some players act like divas and play their situation up to the media and fans. You’re a true businessman and the fans appreciate it!
