Forward Alize Johnson has agreed to a multiyear deal with the Brooklyn Nets worth up to $4.1 million, his agent, George Langberg.
According to Langberg, the deal is worth a maximum of $4.1 million and that his client turned down more guaranteed money from other interested teams. He earned about $100,000 on each of his 10-day deals, based on the NBA minimum salary for a player with his experience and the length of the season.
Johnson’s productivity allowed him to parlay two consecutive 10-day contracts into his new deal with the Nets.
The signing is not a big surprise, coach Steve Nash had hinted he wanted to keep Johnson around after this contract.
Johnson is averaging 7.8 points and 5.8 rebounds a game averaging a little more than 13 minutes a night for the Nets, who had signed with Brooklyn after playing for the Raptors 905 in the G-League bubble. Johnson had played in 31 games for the Pacers over the previous two seasons.
Before joining the Nets, Johnson played 31 games with the Indiana Pacers over the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons.
