After a hard fought effort on the hardwood for his first 10-day contract, the Boston Celtics announced Tuesday that they have signed G Chris Johnson to other short deal.
Johnson's original contract was signed on January 17th, after he enjoyed a time in the D-League with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. Even though the D-League is a little less experienced then the NBA, Johnson averaged 19.4 PPG with the Vipers, solid numbers for the youngster.
He has appeared in four games with the Celtics so far, averaging 10.0 PPG. This past Sunday against the Nets, Johnson put up a career high 12 points.
After this 10-day contract expires on February 6th, the Celtics are faced with a tough decision. Since no players can be signed for more then two consecutive 10-day contracts, the Celtics will be forced to either sign him for the duration of the season, or let the youngster go.
It appears only time will tell, but the play on the floor will certainly have an impact.
