Tyler Johnson: 2019-20 Brooklyn Nets Player Recaps
June free agent signee gave Nets a boost in Orlando
The Brooklyn Nets needed reinforcements for the NBA restart in Orlando, and Tyler Johnson delivered.
Signed as a free agent in late June, Johnson’s significance quickly grew as the Nets faced opt-outs, injuries, and positive COVID-19 tests that eventually led to four additional players being signed as Substitute Players.
Of the five new arrivals, Johnson made the biggest impact. He was fifth on the team in scoring after the restart while playing in all eight seeding round games, averaging 12.0 points while shooting 38.9 percent from 3-point range with 3.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.
