Johnson’s productivity parlayed two consecutive 10-day contracts into his new deal with the Nets.
Johnson had his choice of a bit more guaranteed money elsewhere, but wanted to stay the course with the Nets, where he has averaged 7.8 points and 5.8 rebounds on 65.7 percent shooting in six appearances.
Before joining the Nets, Johnson played 31 games with the Indiana Pacers over the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons.
