Joe Johnson Signs With Pistons After MVP Stint in Big3

Big3 MVP Joe Johnson will reportedly return to the National Basketball Association for the 2019-20 season after spending the summer torching defenders in the Big3 and leading the Triplets to a championship.

The Pistons have signed veteran National Basketball Association player and current 2019 BIG3 MVP Joe Johnson to a one-year contract, according to multiple reports Thursday. He was also named the league MVP.

Detroit is expected to release Michael Beasley in a corresponding move. According to The Athletic, the deal is partially guaranteed.

He's the first player to sign an National Basketball Association contract following a stint in the BIG3.

Johnson has attracted plenty of interest from the National Basketball Association in recent weeks. The Brooklyn Nets reportedly scheduled their own workout with their former star, and Johnson was supposedly also on the radar of the Philadelphia 76ers, Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Clippers, and Denver Nuggets.

Johnson, 38, earned another shot in the National Basketball Association with his performance in the 3-on-3 league. He went unsigned after splitting time with the Utah Jazz and Houston Rockets during the 2017-18 season, which led him to join the Big3 back in March. During that season, he averaged 6.8 points and 3.1 rebounds in 21.9 minutes per game.
