Avery Johnson Booking Agent Details

Avery Johnson, affectionally nicknamed the “Little General”, played guard in the NBA for 16 seasons from 1988-2004. Although he is best remembered for his time with the San Antonio Spurs, Johnson also played for the Seattle SuperSonics, Denver Nuggets, Houston Rockets, Golden State Warriors and Dallas Mavericks. He won an NBA championship with San Antonio in 1999 on a team that featured such teammates as David Robinson, Sean Elliott and Tim Duncan. Johnson’s shot with :47 seconds remaining in Game 5 against the New York Knicks proved to the game-winner and clinched the title for the Spurs. Popular among his teammates and respected by his peers, Johnson in 1998 was honored with the NBA Sportsmanship Award. In 2008, the team retired his jersey #6 and, in 2009, Johnson became a member of the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame.

Johnson was born on March 25, 1965 and played college basketball at Cameron University before transferring to Southern University, where he was twice named SWAC Player of the Year and, as a senior, led Division I basketball in assists with 13.3 per game. Johnson went undrafted and played for the Palm Beach Stingrays in 1988 before signing with Seattle during the 1988-1989 season. After retiring from playing, Johnson went into coaching, first serving as an assistant for Dallas before being named head coach in 2005, a position he held for 3+ seasons. In 2006, Johnson was named NBA Coach of the year after leading the Mavs to the Western Conference’s second-best record and a playoff berth. He went on to coach the Brooklyn Nets from 2010-2012 before moving to the college ranks, where he led the University of Alabama from 2015-2019. He also spent time as an NBA analyst for ESPN before and after his head coaching job with the Nets. In 2020, Johnson became President & CEO of Avery Capital, LLC.
