Via NetsDaily’s Net Income:

Armon Johnson, who the Nets looked at before the 2010 draft, has been signed to a 10-day contract, bringing to 22 the number of players who’ve worn the Nets uniform this season.

A 6’3″ point guard, Johnson played 38 games for the Trail Blazers in 2010-11, averaging 2.9 ppg, shooting better than 40% from deep. He played then in one game this season after being called up from the Idaho Stampede. He is 23 years old and played college ball at Nevada.

With Jordan Farmar declared out for the year last week, the Nets need some additional minutes at point guard, so they’re giving Johnson a shot. Considering the success Gerald Green has had since the Nets decided to take a flyer on him, this could end up being a great chance for Johnson to get some real minutes and prove he belongs in the NBA.

    How do the Nets sign a player without waiving one? I thought the max roster was 15.
