Johnson Trepid on Future With Rockets
JaJuan Johnson has learned very quickly that the NBA is all about business decisions.
After earning $1,074,840 in his rookie season with the Boston Celtics and learning from future Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett, the former Purdue standout was traded in July to the Houston Rockets. Johnson is scheduled to make $1,155,480 this season with the Rockets, who parted with Courtney Lee in the deal.
“It was a good opportunity the first year, and it was fun,” Johnson said of playing for the Celtics. “But that’s what it is. It’s part of the business. That’s something that you learn early on.“You can’t take it personally. You just have to move on. Right now, I will be playing in Houston. I’m happy about it, but we will see.”
