Atlanta has waived guard Carldell “Squeaky” Johnson. The 5′-10″ Johnson only played in one game this preseason, which was against the Spurs. He put up an unimpressive line (one assist, one steal, 0-3 shooting), and was also the one guarding Nando De Colo when he hit the game winning three with 0.6 seconds left.
This move isn’t surprising. The team already has a solid backcourt rotation with Teague, Williams, Harris, Morrow, Stevenson, and Jenkins. I’m not sure why he was on the training camp roster (which now sits at 16 players), because he really had no shot to begin with.
Good luck to Carldell, wherever he may land.
