Former Columbus Brookhaven and Dayton Flyers swingman, Chris Johnson has been getting a good look from NBA scouts and general managers as a possible pick in the second round of the upcoming NBA Draft.

Johnson, who was a key performer for the Flyers the past four years, averaged 12.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game this past season. It also helped him to have played with NBA Development League player Chris Wright, who received national attention and NBA scouts during his career at UD and in the process, they were able to see the talents of Johnson.

There is some discrepency of Johnson being 6-feet-6-inches tall or 6’3. One of Johnson’s friends in Columbus told me recently that he is every bit of 6’6.

Johnson has been very impressive with his ability to handle the ball, shoot from 3-point land and his free throw shooting. He is also a solid defender.

NBA teams say that he has also been impressive in the interview process during visits.

Johnson, who is being projected as a #2 guard, has spent the past month training in New York.
