Emiliano Carchia with Sportando.net is reporting that Ivan Johnson has been waived by Zhejiang of the Chinese Basketball Association:

Chinese team Zhejiang announced that they have waived Ivan Johnson and signed Mike Harris. Johnson was averaging 25.8ppg, 10.2rpg and 2apg in CBA in 25 games. Mike Harris has played with the Jazz this season averaging 4.2ppg in 20 games.

Chris Vivlamore, beat writer for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, previously reported that the Hawks have interest in bringing Johnson back to the team. Johnson’s agent, Jeremiah Haylett, told HawksHoop.com in August that Johnson intended to return to the NBA upon conclusion of the CBA season.

  1. Was he kicked off the team? Banned from another Asian basketball League?

    What’s the story behind the headline?

  2. I have an email in to Johnson’s agent. Haven’t heard back yet.
