According to David Pick, power forward JaJuan Johnson, who led Darussafaka to the EuroCup title, is close to join Lokomotiv Kuban.

Per the experienced journalist, Johnson, who was one of the best players of the Turkish club, is expected to sign a two-year contract with the Russians, while he will earn more than two million dollars and will become the highest paid player outside the Euroleague.

Johnson averaged 13.6 points and 6.1 rebounds in 21 EuroCup games as a member of Darussafaka last season.
