Cam Johnson has impressed his head coach since joining the Brooklyn Nets

Johnson and Mikal Bridges along with four first-round draft picks were traded to the Brooklyn Nets for Kevin Durant right before the deadline. Both have been explosive on offense and defense in their early time with the Nets and Brooklyn’s head coach Jacque Vaughn has been “very impressed” with Johnson’s play.

Vaughn had this to say to the media about what Johnson has brought to the team since the trade.

“Been very impressed with him,”… “I think he’s playing with aggression on both ends of the floor, helping us rebound… and then, he’s shown a little bit of everything.” – Jacque Vaughn

The 27 year old has played in nine games for Brooklyn so far this season and will play in his tenth tonight on the road vs Houston. He’s averaging (18.2) points, (4.4) rebounds, (1.6) assists, and (1.3) steals per game. His three-point shooting percentage (.333) with Brooklyn is down from his (.392) career percentage.

He’s scored double-digit points in all nine games with the Nets so far. Johnson has also scored over 20+ points three times since being traded to Brooklyn. Head coach Jacque Vaughn also praised Johnson for his ability to handle the basketball and play connected with his teammates in the pick-and-roll.
