The Detroit Pistons are reportedly signing free agent shooting guard Joe Johnson.
Johnson, 38, spent last season in the Big 3 league, winning the MVP and leading his team to a championship. He last played in the NBA for the Houston Rockets and Utah Jazz during the 2017-2018 season.
The 17-year NBA veteran is attempting an NBA comeback. Johnson reportedly worked out for the Pistons on Tuesday.
Various reports, including Chris Hayes of ESPN, say the Pistons and Johnson have agreed to a one-year deal. The Pistons will reportedly waive Michael Beasley to make room.
