It’s official, the Sacramento Kings acquire James Johnson from the Toronto Raptors

While most of us were busy sleeping, the Sacramento Kings were finishing off a deal to land small forward James Johnson from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for a 2014 2nd round pick.  ESPN's Marc Stein first reported the deal, but it has since been confirmed by our friend Sam Amick of SI.com as well as others. The Kings have just confirmed the acquisition through an official press release.  Here is Geoff Petrie, Kings President of Basketball Operations' quote on the transaction.
“We’re excited to add a talent like James to our young nucleus of players,” said Petrie. “He’s an outstanding defender with athleticism who can play at both positions up front while providing some versatility offensively and adding a dimension to what we can do on the floor.”

But after two seasons and a total of 19 games played, the team's patience appears to be waning. Following Saturday's game in Las Vegas, Kings summer league co-head coach Alex English made it known that Whiteside was limited to just 12 minutes during the contest because he failed to hustle back on defense. ...
