Default Marcus Williams let go, again; Spurs sign DerMarr Johnson

Spurs sign DerMarr Johnson NewsWire | Dec. 29, 2007

The San Antonio Spurs today announced that they have signed guard DerMarr Johnson.

The 6-9 Johnson has played for three teams - Atlanta, New York and Denver - during his seven-year NBA career. He was originally selected by Atlanta in the first round of the 2000 NBA Draft, with the sixth overall pick. In his career he has appeared in 339 regular season NBA games, averaging 6.2 points and 2.3 rebounds in 17.4 minutes.

The 27-year-old Johnson started the 2007-08 season with the Austin Toros, the Spurs affiliate in the NBA Development League. In 10 games with the Toros, Johnson averaged 15.8 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 33.9 minutes.

Johnson enjoyed his best season during the 2001-02 campaign when he averaged 8.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 24.0 minutes in 72 games with the Hawks. He missed the entire 2002-03 season after suffering four broken vertebra in his neck in a car accident in September of 2002. He played briefly in the ABA, with the Long Beach Jam, in 2003-04 before returning to the NBA on 2/3/04 when he signed a 10-day contact with the Knicks. He spent the remainder of the 2003-04 season with New York, averaging 5.4 points in 13.7 minutes in 21 games. Johnson signed with the Nuggets on 10/18/04. He spent the next three seasons with Denver.

Johnson played one season at the University of Cincinnati before entering the 2000 NBA Draft. He was named the 2000 Conference USA Freshman of the Year after averaging 12.6 points in 32 games.

Looks like Langford's going back down to the D-League once Barry gets back, since the competition was between him and Marcus Williams. DerMarr'll probably beat him out for the final spot.
