Nets sign forward Alize Johnson to a multi-year, $4.1 million contract

Michael Smith and Michael Holley debate how the NBA's race for Most Valuable Player is being affected by injuries and take a look at the current favorites, including Nikola Jokic and Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Alize Johnson has played well for the Brooklyn Nets during his two 10-day contracts, so they are keeping him around.

The Nets have signed Johnson to a multi-year contract that could be worth up to $4.1 million, the team announced Sunday (Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN broke the story). The contract details are not yet known, but it’s unlikely future years are fully guaranteed. Still, it is a good NBA contract for the 24-year-old out of Missouri State.

The signing is not a big surprise, coach Steve Nash had hinted he wanted to keep Johnson around after this contract.

Johnson is averaging 7.8 points and 5.8 rebounds a game averaging a little more than 13 minutes a night for the Nets, who had signed with Brooklyn after playing for the Raptors 905 in the G-League bubble. Johnson had played in 31 games for the Pacers over the previous two seasons.
