Unrestricted free agent forward James Johnson has agreed in principle to a two-year contract with the Toronto Raptors, according to Gary Parrish.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Johnson averaged 7.4 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists last season with the Memphis Grizzlies in 52 games after being signed by the team in December.

It will be his second stint with the Raptors, after spending the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons with the team. He was originally drafted by the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the 2009 NBA Draft.
