Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
He had one season of college, but became one of a number of recent Kentucky players to head to the draft after their freshman seasons.
Johnson averaged 13.5 points and 5.9 rebounds for the Wildcats. That included 38 percent shooting on 3-pointers.
Johnson has immense potential and is developing quickly with versatile skills to play inside and out.
He has a strong upper body and notable leaping ability to finish in the lane. That could ultimately make him to a difficult matchup.
He moves up and down the court well and seems to have the mentality that's a good fit for the NBA. He also has a good knack for creating contact and getting to the free-throw line, shooting the second-most foul shots among Kentucky players during the past season.
ANALYSIS
Despite all his talent -- and much of that might be untapped - Johnson often receives good grades for his enthusiasm and grit.
At 6-foot-6, he's capable of finding numerous ways to score. But there's an intriguing component about a player who's so physically gifted and so there already are overtones that he could turn into a special type of defender if he's able to focus on being an on-ball bulldog.
He's still feeling things out at times, evident by the notion that he can beat defenders at any time when that might no longer be the case as the competition level rises. That approach could have accounted for some stretches when turnovers were problematic for him (60 turnovers and 60 assists for the season).
