As a sophomore at Louisville, Johnson posted averages of 12.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists over 19 games (all starts). A stat that could shed light on Johnson's potential role at the next level is that he knocked down 1.7 triples per game at a 38.6 percent clip this past season.
He finished the season as the only player in the ACC among the top 25 in both rebounding and assists and earned All-ACC honourable mention honours.
A native of Louisville, KY, Johnson rounds out a three-person draft class for the Raptors, who selected Florida State forward Scottie Barnes with the No. 4 overall pick and Nebraska guard Dalano Banton with the 46th overall pick in the second round.
The 20-year-old could make his Raptors debut at the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League, which tips off on Sunday, Aug. 8.
