 TORONTO (AP) -The Raptors added Linton Johnson to their roster Thursday, signing the former San Antonio Spurs forward to a 10-day contract. To make room, Toronto waived guard Darrick Martin.
Johnson, 6-foot-8, played in six games with Phoenix this season after signing consecutive 10-day contracts on Feb. 22 and March 4. He scored a high of six points in nine minutes against Memphis on March 11.
He has averaged 4.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 14.7 minutes in 139 regular-season NBA games. He also spent time with Chicago, New Jersey and New Orleans.
Johnson was a teammate of Raptors forward Rasho Nesterovic on San Antonio's 2005 NBA championship team. Johnson played four years at Tulane but was not drafted.
Martin played in 17 games this season with the Raptors, averaging 1.6 points, 1.2 assists and 8.3 minutes.
