"When I landed in NY, I landed as a proud dad in a sense", Johnson said via telephone on Wednesday night.
Highly touted NBA Draft prospects Trae Young and Lonnie Walker IV have officially signed on with Adidas, joining the likes of NBA stars James Harden, Damian Lillard, John Wall, Kristaps Porzingis and Donovan Mitchell.
Concerns: Sexton is capable of hitting from outside, such as when he hit six 3-pointers against Auburn and had five other games with at least three made 3s.
It's hard to find a mock draft where he's lower than Sexton, or even Kentucky's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, a 6-foot-6 combo guard.
In 32 appearances with the Sooners last season, the prolific guard turned in averages of 27.4 points on 42 percent shooting from the field and 36 percent from beyond the arc, 8.7 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.7 steals.
"To me, he's a wannabe Steph, and there's only one Steph..." "But it was fun. and it motivated me to get better". I just don't think you can have enough perimeter defenders in the league.

"I feel like I'm the most competitive (player in the draft) because I want to win and also I want to get the best out of my teammates every time I'm on the floor", Sexton said.
Jonathan Givony, ESPN: "Kemba Walker has one more year on his contract and might not be in Charlotte's long-term plans". Sexton shoots well, is unsafe off the dribble and brings energy at the defensive end.
Sexton also had pre-Draft workouts with Cleveland and Orlando.
Analysis The morning after the Cavaliers were swept in the NBA Finals, they brought Sexton in for a workout.
It may be a stretch to say he turned Kemba Walker into an All-Star. "Sexton would be an option worth considering here, with the hope being that the spacing of the pro game would help boost shooting percentages that weren't all too impressive during his lone season at Alabama".
