Raptors Fan Favorite Amir Johnson Joins The Celtics

Amir Johnson will be missed in Toronto. He wasn’t always a star on the court, but he was bigger than life and more generous than expected with the Raptors fans over his six seasons there.

An unrestricted free agent who said he would like to return, but didn’t realistically expect to be back, Johnson agreed to a two-year $24 million deal with the Celtics.


Johnson gave his all in Toronto, often playing through injuries and doing it with a smile for the media and the fans alike. Boston has themselves a true character-guy, someone they will be proud to have represent their city.
