Indiana just barely let Orlando Johnson get his feet wet as a rookie. But based on his summer league performance and Indiana's roster, Johnson looks primed for a breakout sophomore year.
He averaged 14.6 points through five games this July, though he hasn't shot it as well as he would've liked. In college, Johnson shot at least 39 percent from downtown in three out of his four years. He nailed 38 percent of his three-point attempts as an NBA rookie. Johnson has a good-looking stroke that Indiana could really use in its backcourt.
Physically, Johnson is built like a football player. And unlike Lance Stephenson, who relies mostly on athleticism and activity, Johnson is a refined, fundamentally sound offensive player.
With only Stephenson and Gerald Green higher on the depth chart, Johnson should get his chance to spark the Pacers' second unit.
