2. Cameron Johnson
The 27-year-old forward might be the cheapest player on this list, except the Kings might have to overpay him. Since Cam Johnson is a restricted free agent, the Brooklyn Nets can match any contract offered to him. To get around this, the Sacramento Kings might have to simply overpay him to the point the Nets are willing to let him go.
After spending three seasons in Phoenix, the Suns traded him to the Nets in the middle of his fourth year as part of the Kevin Durant blockbuster. Johnson averaged 15.5 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists, and 1.2 steals per game with 47/40/84 shooting splits.
Cam Johnson is a prototypical 3-and-D forward. Over half of his shot attempts come from beyond the arc, and his 6’8″ frame with a 6’10” wingspan help him to guard every position. While he is not a lockdown defender, he holds his own with occasional instances of getting beat off the dribble by faster guards.
Cam Johnson has also dealt with injuries, playing just 42 games last season, but he finished the season strong and healthy.
Johnson finished the season on a 35-game streak of at least one made three-pointer, which will likely continue to carry on into next season. Johnson has one of the most impressive jump shots in the league, shooting 39% from deep throughout his four-year career.
Cam Johnson’s impressive shooting ability would give the Sacramento Kings possibly the best shooting lineup in the league, next to Kevin Huerter and Keegan Murray.
