Hawks sign B.J. Johnson to second 10-day contractThe Atlanta Hawks today decided to keep B.J. Johnson on the club longer, signing the forward to a second 10-day contract. His initial 10-day deal was signed on March 1, 2019.

As is usually the case with players on 10-day deals, Johnson has mostly watched from the bench. When on the court, in 9.7 minutes per game he has averaged 4.3 points and 2.0 rebounds, on good shooting.

The Hawks are 23-45 this season, which through Monday's games is the 12th best record in the Eastern conference. The team's main bright spots this season have been the play of rookie guard Trae Young and young power forward John Collins. The team is focused on the future, not the present.

But for now, Johnson remains on the roster.
