2023 Free Agency

Cam Johnson re-signs with Nets

Johnson averaged 16.6 points over 25 games for Brooklyn during the 2022-23 season.

Free-agent swingman Cam Johnson is expected to re-sign with the Nets.

Free agent forward Cam Johnson has re-signed with the Brooklyn Nets on a four-year, $108 million, per multiple reports.

The deal became official on July 6.

Johnson joined the Nets in February as part of a blockbuster trade that sent Kevin Durant to Phoenix.

Johnson was a restricted free agent, so the Nets could have matched any offer for him. But general manager Sean Marks had stressed that the team wanted to keep Johnson and didn’t wait to see if other offers would materialize. 

The No. 11 pick in the 2019 Draft, Johnson helped the Suns reach the NBA Finals in 2021 and finished third in the voting for the Kia Sixth Man of the Year award in 2021-22. He was then moved into the starting lineup and finished last season averaging a career-best 15.5 points for Phoenix and Brooklyn.

Johnson and close friend Mikal Bridges, who came together from Phoenix, helped the Nets finish strong to earn the No. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference despite dealing All-Stars Durant and Kyrie Irving within days of each other.

Although Brooklyn swept by Philadelphia in the first round, Johnson averaged 18.5 points on nearly 51% shooting.

He finished this season with great shooting splits at 47% from the field, 40% from three and 84% from the free-throw line.
