"I want to thank Ottawa for all they've done for me." stated Johnson, he continues, "I'm very excited to be coming back to play in the Toronto area to play in front of my friends and family. Superman's coming home!"
VP of Operations John Wiggins said of Bol Kong, "Bol Kong is a talented basketball player who will fit in well with the style of basketball the SkyHawks play. We wish him all the best."
