Amir Johnson will again suit up for the G League Ignite this season. Johnson played with the Ignite during their inaugural season during 2020-21.

This season, the Ignite will feature top prospects Jaden Hardy, Dyson Daniels, Michael Foster, and MarJon Beauchamp. Hardy is projected as a top-five pick, and Daniels is a potential lottery pick.
