Johnson, who last played in the NBA in 2017-18, will audition for three Eastern Conference playoff teams from a year ago in the Detroit Pistons, Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets, according to sources.
Johnson, 38, hit the game-winning shot for the Triplets in Sunday’s BIG3 championship game and is a career 16.0 points per game scorer in 17 seasons in the NBA.
In his last NBA action, Johnson averaged 6.0 points on 38.1% shooting in 23 games for the Houston Rockets in 2017-18. In the 2018 playoffs, he saw his playing time cut to just 6.8 minutes per game as the Rockets advanced to Game 7 of the Western Conference finals before falling to the Golden State Warriors.
Nation, would you like to see the Pistons give Johnson a chance or has his NBA ship sailed?
