(WMC) - There won't be anymore neck tattoo nights in Memphis. James Johnson, the high flying forward, is moving on to play for the Toronto Raptors.

Johnson signed a two year, $5 million deal, which returns him to a team he played for in 2011-2012.

During his Memphis tenure, Johnson averaged 7.5 points and four rebounds a game for the Grizz after being called up from the D-League just before mid-season.

The former 16th overall draft pick had become somewhat of a Memphis fan favorite for his flashy and three-point blocks, but got into legal trouble in the off season with a domestic violence charge.

The charge was later dropped.
