Suns’ Tyler Johnson Discusses Transition Following Trade

Published

Phoenix Suns guard Tyler Johnson is still adjusting to his new team following his trade from the Miami Heat, and has played strongly since arriving in Arizona.

Johnson talked about his transition following the trade.

“It’s different, for sure,” Johnson said, during an interview with Fox Sports Arizona (via Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel).

Johnson also admitted a mistake he made on Sunday during a team practice at American Airlines Arena, in Miami, which is the home of his former team, the Heat, who the Suns play on Monday.

“I accidentally walked out the other way, toward my old locker room.”

It’s been a big change from Miami to Phoenix.

“Just like any big transition in your life, it’s going to take a minute to get settled,” Johnson said.

“But I think it’s just how you approach it. You can look at things as a negative, like, ‘I just came over and I’m still learning the offense. I’m learning this. I’m learning that.’ Or you know, you can embrace it.

“And that’s what I’ve chosen to do, is just embrace it and I know good things will come from it.”
