Report: Sixers will make 'strong push' to sign Amir Johnson

By Brandon Apter, Sports Talk Philly editor

Free agency begins in just a few hours and one report has surfaced regarding a potential target for the Philadelphia 76ers. It's not J.J. Redick, it's not Andre Iguodala and it's not Patty Mills. According to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the organization plans to target forward Amir Johnson.

Johnson, 30, played in 80 games last season (77 starts) for the Boston Celtics and averaged 6.5 points and 4.6 rebounds per game. He shot 57.6 percent from the floor in just over 20 minutes per game.  Johnson also had his third-highest three-point percentage of his career, hitting 40.9 percent of his shots from beyond the arc.
