OLSH, Pitt Graduate Cam Johnson Off to Brooklyn in Kevin Durant Trade



Early Thursday morning, Moon native Cam Johnson was traded by the Phoenix Suns to the Brooklyn Nets in a blockbuster deal that included Kevin Durant heading to Phoenix.

Johnson, who began his high school career at Moon, then graduated from OLSH, then went on to graduate from Pitt before transferring to North Carolina to finish his college career. He was then drafted as the No. 11 pick in the 2019 draft. Johnson was plagued by injuries throughout his Pitt career, averaging just four points and one rebound per game through his first two seasons. However, in his third and final season in Pittsburgh, Johnson averaged 11.9 points, 4.5 and rebounds per game while shooting 42% from three-point range.

Johnson, a 6-foot-8 forward, has played 200 games in his NBA career, all for the Phoenix Suns. This season, he is in the midst of a career year, averaging 13.9 points per game on 47% shooting.

The blockbuster deal sent Durant and TJ Warren to Phoenix in return for Johnson, Jae Crowder, four first-round draft picks, and a 2028 draft pick swap.
