Default Sacramento fans, tell us about......James Johnson

Free Agency starts July 1st. So for the next 2 months, this will be an ongoing series to get to know some of the lesser sought after free agents. What better way to do that than to get that teams fans to comment....

So please tell us about the free agents strengths, weaknesses, intangibles, potential, injury history, possible contract demands, free agency ambitions, desire to stay with current team, likes, dislikes, pet peeves, and of course....sexual orientation.

The players we've looked at so far:

Jason Maxiell : http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=298408
Omri Casspi: http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=299152
Byron Mullens: http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=299388
Alan Anderson: http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=299775
Luke Babbitt: http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=299997
Anthony Morrow: http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=300637
Johan Petro: http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=300995
Dorell Wright: http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=301660
Beno Udrih: http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=301904
Xavier Henry: http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=302461
Francisco Garcia: http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=302712

Dumb as a rock, not very skilled, but strong for a 3 and pretty athletic.

Strenghts: Excellent athlete with above average ball handling for a SF and pretty decent creativity with the ball and a above average finisher close to the rim. Solid D as well showed when active he can be a lockdown defender.

Weaknesses" Shooting, his shooting pretty much cripples his whole game, his lack of an outside shot murdered the Kings spacing at the start of the year which resulted in his losing his starting spot and later Kings fans forgetting he was still on the team. His decision making at times leaves a lot to be desired so while he is creative he can try to do to much and when it's not going for him he doesn't stop. He lacks any confidence on his shot unless it's a game winner (as Knicks fans already know from his dagger).

If he can get a consistant middy to a Tony Allen level imo he can be a similar type player, but he was a terrible fit on the Kings but I still think he has enough "tools" with a slightly better jump shot to be a 15-20min energy guy who fills up the stat sheet.

Why can't Bull fans and Toronto fans speak of James Johnson too? Maybe we will

James Johnson has great size and athletic ability. He is an above average defender (like nearly all of Chicago's draft picks) and he can get the job done in crunch time (however maybe that's only when he plays against the Bulls).

However, his offensive game is where he has problems. I'm not sure he knows what he is doing on the court. It's too bad too considering he has ideal defense and size for his position.
