Clippers Summer League Player Profile: PG – Elijah Johnson

Clipper Nation those of you who are headed to the hot desert for 2013 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas Nevada here is a closer look at the players participating for your Los Angeles Clippers. I will post player profiles leading up to the Summer League.

Meet Elijah Johnson, Johnson started at Point Guard for the Kansas Jayhawks last season. In all actuality he’s a Shooting Guard in a Point Guards body. His first step is electric, and he covers ground very quickly with top-notch speed and also displays superior strength on the court for a guard. He’s a big time leaper with raw athletic ability. On the downside is he very inconsistent as 60% of his shots are from the 3pt line where he only shot 33.1%.
