The best player comparison to make when it pertains to Stanley Johnson is the artist formerly known as Ron Artest.

Artest (or Metta World Peace) won a Defensive Player of the Year award during the 2003-04 season and carved out a long NBA career as a defensive stopper and three-point specialist.

Johnson fits that mold and has the size and upper body of Artest—he’s 6’7″ and 245 pounds.

His offensive game still leaves a lot to be desired, but he’s already a defensive-ready prospect and he’s just 19 years of age.

If Luol Deng decides to decline his player option for next season, can you imagine Johnson in a starting lineup with offensive stalwarts such as Bosh and Dwyane Wade?

The Arizona product can be a long-term role player for a team that already has a couple of offensive stars.
