Eddie Johnson

Cleveland Cavaliers
6-2 185 Guard

Obtained from Hawks for Johnny Davis during last season... Used primarily as reserve, he averaged approximately 20 minutes per game... Career on wane... Shooting from field (.457) and free-throw line (.723) plus scoring output (10 ppg) last season were all well below career norms... Brought even more chaos to an already wild backcourt corps of World B. Free and John Bagley... Has manic-depressive problem under control, but can't control passage of time, which is robbing him of his quickness and shooting ability... Scored 20 points in 1980 All-Star game... Born Feb. 24 1955, in Ocala, Fla.... Chosen No. 49 overall by Hawks in 1977... Was teammate of Spurs' Mike Mitchell in Auburn... Brother of Bullets' Frank Johnson.

Relevant Stats:
10.0 ppg, 45.7 FG%, 4.7 apg
