Joe Johnson reaches deal with Pistons after MVP season in Big 3

Joe Johnson reaches deal with Pistons after MVP season in Big 3

Joe Johnson is expected to sign with the Pistons on Thursday, according to Stadium's Jeff Goodman.

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. He also led the league in assists with 31 and ranked in the top three in rebounds and steals.

The deal is worth $2.6 million and has $220,000 in guaranteed money, a source told ESPN's Bobby Marks.

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 17-year National Basketball Association veteran is attempting an National Basketball Association comeback. He averaged only 6.8 points and 3.1 rebounds per game while shooting a rough 40.6 percent from the field during his last National Basketball Association campaign, split between the Utah Jazz and Houston Rockets. Johnson reportedly worked out for the Pistons on Tuesday.

Johnson has 17 National Basketball Association seasons under his belt thus far, with career averages of 16 points and 3.9 rebounds per game.

The seven-time All-Star has also passed through the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, and Utah Jazz, but is perhaps best remembered for his stints with the Phoenix Suns, Atlanta Hawks, and Nets.
