Johnson, 6-foot-8, 205 pounds, has appeared in 139 career regular season NBA games, averaging 4.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 14.7 minutes. He has spent time with Chicago, San Antonio, New Jersey, New Orleans and Phoenix. He averaged a career-best 5.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 18.1 minutes with New Orleans during the 2005-06 season.

Johnson, 27, was a teammate of current Raptor Rasho Nesterovic on San Antonio’s 2005 NBA Championship team. He has also played in the Continental Basketball Association with the Rockford Lightning (2004) and in Spain as a member of Tau Ceramica (2007).

This season Johnson appeared in six games with Phoenix after signing consecutive 10-day contracts with the club on February 22 and March 4. He averaged 2.5 points, 2.2 rebounds and 8.8 minutes. He had a high of six points in nine minutes versus Memphis on March 11.

A four-year athlete at Tulane University, Johnson averaged 6.7 points and 4.9 rebounds in 107 career games. He went undrafted after posting averages of 9.0 points and 6.5 rebounds as a senior during the 2001-02 season.

Martin had seen action in 17 games this season with the Raptors, averaging 1.6 points, 1.2 assists and 8.3 minutes.

Johnson will be available to the team Friday when the Raptors play host to the New York Knicks at Air Canada Centre. Game time is 7 p.m. (Raptors NBA TV/FAN 590)
