The Nets are bringing back guard Tyler Johnson on an undisclosed deal, the team announced Friday morning.
Johnson originally signed with the Nets during the NBA hiatus back in June and appeared 12 times for them in the Orlando bubble, including all four playoff games.
During the eight seeding games (four starts), Johnson averaged 12 points, three rebounds and three assists per game. In the playoffs, he put up 13.8 points, 1.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists per contest as the Nets were swept by the Toronto Raptors.
Johnson proved himself worthy of remaining with Brooklyn in the bubble, and now will get to compete on a championship contender next season.
Prior to signing with the Nets in June, the six-year vet out of Fresno State played 31 games for the Phoenix Suns during the 2019-2020 season.
For his career, Johnson, who went undrafted in 2014, has averaged 10.5 points on 42.9 percent shooting from the field and 35.9 shooting from three, 3.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game.
