Johnson recently received a pair of 10-day contracts from the organization and took advantage of the opportunity, averaging 7.8 points on 65.7% shooting and 5.8 rebounds in six appearances. The 24-year-old's most impressive outing came in his Nets debut when he finished with 23 points, 15 rebounds, and two steals in a loss to the Utah Jazz on March 24.
Johnson had the chance to earn more guaranteed money with another team but elected to stay in Brooklyn, Wojnarowski adds.
Prior to joining the Nets, the former second-round pick played a combined 31 games with the Indiana Pacers during the 2018-19 and 2019-20 campaigns. He also made appearances with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants and Raptors 905 in three G League seasons.
