Small forward Stanley Johnson believes the Toronto Raptors will be a “nightmare” this season once their defense clicks.

Johnson signed a two-year, $7.4 million contract with the Raptors this summer. He says Toronto is going to wreck havoc on the defensive side of the ball this season since they have young and hungry players who take pride in playing defense.

The Raptors have good defenders everywhere you look. Kyle Lowry, Pascal Siakam, Serge Ibaka, OG Anunoby, Stanley Johnson and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson are all guys who get after it on defense.

Johnson was the eighth overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft by the Detroit Pistons. Detroit traded him to the New Orleans Pelicans last season. The 23-year-old has career averages of 7.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists while shooting 37.4 percent from the field, 29.3 percent from beyond the arc and 76.4 percent from the free-throw line in 285 NBA games.

The Raptors are hoping Johnson can jump-start his career in Toronto. Johnson has yet to reach his potential in the NBA, but he could be a sneaky good addition for the Raptors, who are looking to prove to everyone they can still be a force to be reckoned with despite the departure of Kawhi Leonard.

Defense is going to be the Raptors' calling card this season, that's for sure.
