Haynes: Ex-Blazers G Armon Johnson Says Release Was "Unexpected"

8
Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com reports that former Portland Trail Blazers guard Armon Johnson says that his release came as a surprise. --------------------------------- "It was tough. It hurt. I wasn't crying or anything like that, but it was just so unexpected," Johnson told CSNNW.com. "I had to understand that this is a business and it's nothing personal. It was tough, though." "My family just supported me and kept my spirits up and most of my Blazer teammates called and text me wishing me the best," Johnson said. "That meant a lot to me and I was able shift my focus on what I had to do next." --------------------------------- Johnson, a 2010 second round pick, was released back in February so the Blazers could sign center Joel Przybilla. He later signed with the New Jersey Nets. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
