According to Jason Jones of The Athletic, the Sacramento Kings are signing forward BJ Johnson of the Lakeland Magic for the rest of the season:

As Jones mentions, the Kings will assign Johnson back to the G League as the Magic are currently in the playoffs and will face the Long Island Nets Tuesday evening in the Conference Finals. He recorded 20 points and 3 rebounds in their victory over the Westchester Knicks on March 29th.

Johnson spent two years at Syracuse prior to transferring to La Salle for his junior and senior seasons of collegiate basketball and went undrafted in the 2018 draft. In his 39 G League games, the 6’ 7” wing has scored 15.4 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 29.8 minutes per game, while shooting 48% from the field and 44% from three-point range.

The terms of his deal have not been released at this time.
