Pistons ink Joe Johnson to partially guaranteed 1-year deal

Joe Johnson is expected to sign with the Pistons on Thursday, according to Stadium's Jeff Goodman. He recently was named the MVP of the Big3 and led his team, the Triplets, to the league championship. He also led the league in points, assists, 4-pointers and made six game-winners exhibiting his clutch gene.

Johnson is the first player to net a National Basketball Association deal after playing in the BIG3. Beasley had agreed to a non-guaranteed deal with the Pistons earlier in the summer but never officially signed the arrangement, as Bobby Mark of ESPN.com tweets.

Johnson has attracted plenty of interest from the National Basketball Association in recent weeks.

As far as the National Basketball Association goes, Johnson last played for the Houston Rockets and Utah Jazz during the 2017-2018 season.

Johnson's return to the National Basketball Association gives the Big 3 a big success story, and it gives the former All-Star another shot at continuing his 18-year career. 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 has 17 National Basketball Association seasons under his belt thus far, with career averages of 16 points and 3.9 rebounds per game.
