Report: Joe Johnson working out for several top contenders
Joe Johnson may have just parlayed his excellent season in the BIG3 into another shot in the NBA.
Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated reported on Wednesday that the seven-time All-Star is currently in Philadelphia for a workout with the Sixers this week. Spears also said that Johnson is expected to work out for the LA Clippers, the Denver Nuggets, and the Milwaukee Bucks as well.
The now 38-year-old Johnson earned BIG3 MVP honors this season with the Tri-State Triplets, who are playing in the league’s title game this Sunday. He last played in the NBA in the 2017-18 campaign, averaging 6.0 points in 22.0 minutes per game for the Houston Rockets.
The BIG3 has been in the news more because of controversy lately, but getting one of their players back into the NBA would be a massive step for the league.
