Johnson last played in the NBA in 2017-18, when he split the season between the Utah Jazz and Houston Rockets. He featured in the BIG3 league this season, where he was a massive success, winning a league title and an MVP award.
The 38-year-old, who has been linked with an NBA return for a while, would be the first major figure to parlay BIG3 success into another NBA opportunity.
