Source: Pistons agree to deal with Joe Johnson

The Detroit Pistons and veteran swingman Joe Johnson have agreed to terms on a deal, according to ESPN and multiple reports.

Johnson, 38, last played in the NBA in the 2017-18 season. He recently was named the MVP of the BIG3 and led his team, the Triplets, to the league championship.

Johnson 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.

He played for Brooklyn from 2012-16, earning one of his seven career All-Star appearances.

Aside from the Pistons, Johnson also worked out earlier this month with the Bucks and Nets, according to ESPN and reports.
