Nets sign Armon Johnson to 10-day contract

The Nets have signed guard Armon Johnson to a 10-day contract, the team announced today. The 6-3 Johnson most recently played for the Portland Trailblazers in the NBA, playing just five minutes in one game this season before being released on February 27th. Johnson was drafted 34th overall in 2010 and played 38 games in 2010-11 for the Blazers, averaging 2.9 points in 7.3 minutes per game.

Johnson is the fifth player the Nets have signed to a ten-day contract this season, following Dennis Horner, Andre Emmett, Jerry Smith, and Gerald Green. With Jordan Farmar likely sidelined the remainder of the season, Johnson is another body to throw at the depleted Nets’ point guard rotation, currently filled in spurts by Gerald Wallace and MarShon Brooks, as the season comes to a close.
