James Johnson to work out for the Atlanta Hawks

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Hawks are reportedly among the teams that will attend a workout for free agent forward James Johnson.

Shams Charania of RealGM reports that the Atlanta Hawks are one of the teams that will be taking a look at small forward James Johnson at an upcoming workout. Other teams that are mentioned include the San Antonio Spurs and the Utah Jazz.

Johnson was drafted No. 16 overall in the 2009 NBA Draft by the Chicago Bulls. He was later traded to the Toronto Raptors and spent last season with the Sacramento Kings. He has career averages of 6.3 points and 3.2 rebounds. His best season came in 2012 when he averaged 9.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 62 games for the Raptors.

Atlanta currently has 14 players under contract and have the room and cap space to add another player if they choose to. The small forward position still seems to be thin with DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver as likely options although Mike Scott and Paul Millsap could also see time there.

There was no word in the report of when the actual workout is scheduled to take place.
