Report: Brooklyn Nets Sign Guard Tyler Johnson Ahead Of NBA Restart In Orlando

The Nets have reportedly bolstered their roster with the addition of Tyler Johnson.

The 27-year-old Johnson played in 31 games this season with the Suns prior to being waived on February 10. It’s a bit of a full circle moment for the Nets who had offered Johnson a four-year $50 million contract in the summer of 2016 when he was a restricted free agent. The Heat matched the offer and he remained in Miami.

Johnson has been a solid shooter from three point range in his NBA career, knocking down 35.3 percent of his attempts. But, his shooting had fallen off in Phoenix, making threes at just a 28.9 percent clip in the desert prior to being waived. Johnson will add some depth to Brooklyn’s rotation following the loss of point guard Kyrie Irving to a shoulder injury.

The move to sign Johnson does come with a corresponding waiving of guard Theo Pinson.
