The Atlanta Hawks continue to search for help at the small forward position and may be interested in former Los Angeles Lakers small forward Wesley Johnson according to a report by RealGM's Shams Charania.
Aside from L.A. teams, Atlanta is a strong candidate for free agent Wesley Johnson, league sources tell RealGM. He's awaiting right deal.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 4, 2015
Johnson appeared in 76 games with the Lakers in 2015 averaging 9.9 points on 41 percent shooting. Including 35 percent from three-point range.
The departure of DeMarre Carroll left Atlanta some depth issues to work on on the wing position. The Hawks were able to re-sign Paul Millsap and brought in Tiago Splitter in a trade with San Antonio to address the front court. Johnson has good size at 6-7, is a good shooter and would bring some experience having played a lot of minutes over the last few seasons.
