The Toronto Raptors have signed forward James Johnson. The Toronto Star is reporting terms of the deal at $5 million over two years.

Johnson played 87 games with the Raptors over two seasons after being acquired from the Bulls (for a first-round pick) in 2011. He was traded to the King for a second-rounder in 2012. The 6-foot-9 forward averaged 9.1 points and 4.7 rebounds with Toronto in 2011-12. He averaged 7.4 points and 3.2 rebounds in 52 games with Memphis last season.

Johnson will get part of the Raptors' mid-level exception and become the 13th player on their roster, not including unsigned rookies Lucas Nogueria and DeAndre Daniels (their status is still unclear) and the non-guaranteed contract of Dwight Buycks.
