Despite what ESPN’s Chad Ford thought in his mock draft, Nick Johnson is an NBA Draft pick.
Johnson was taken #42 by the Houston Rockets, who are attempting to lure free agent Carmelo Anthony to join superstars Dwight Howard and James Harden.
Johnson is in a great opportunity to learn from star players, while fitting into a roster that doesn’t necessarily need him for his point guard abilities. Instead, Johnson can focus on defense and spot shooting as he tries to carve out a role on the team.
Congratulations to Johnson and his family on a well deserved selection in the NBA Draft.
