Johnson, a seven-time All-Star over 16 NBA seasons, would join center Brandan Wright as buyout additions for the Rockets. Johnson was traded to Sacramento on Thursday after spending parts of two seasons with the Utah Jazz.
Johnson, 36, gives the Rockets another proven wing scorer and playmaker. He also played for Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni in three season in Phoenix.
