Tyler Johnson played so well for the Nets that he may have earned himself another hefty pay day, but the team will only be able to add free agents by offering veteran’s minimum contracts, making his stay in Brooklyn a long shot.
Johnson played very well since joining the Nets and he was one of the more efficient players in the Orlando bubble for Brooklyn, averaging 12.0 points, 3.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds, while playing scrappy defense and shooting a career-best 39 percent from downtown. The Nets though are capped out, having already $139 million in committed salaries for next season, and that doesn’t include Joe Harris who is a free agent. Johnson is still just 28 and he should be able to generate plenty of interest around the league, but unless he takes a pay cut it looks like he won’t be returning to the Nets.
