Joe Johnson reaches deal with Pistons after MVP season in Big 3

Joe Johnson Reportedly Close To NBA Return With Eastern Conference Team

Report: Joe Johnson to Sign With Pistons, Make NBA Return After BIG3 Stint

There's always room for great shooters in the NBA, or so it seems after ex-NBA all-star Joe Johnson signed to the Pistons Thursday, despite his stint in the Big 3, Ice Cube's unconventional basketball league founded alongside entertainment executive Jeff Kwatinetz.

The report notes that the Pistons will likely release Michael Beasley to open up a roster spot. Beasley had agreed to a non-guaranteed deal with the Pistons earlier in the summer but never officially signed the arrangement, as Bobby Mark of ESPN.com tweets. He recently was named the MVP of the Big3 and led his team, the Triplets, to the league championship.

Johnson has attracted plenty of interest from the National Basketball Association in recent weeks.

A few weeks back, The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears reported that several teams had planned workouts for Iso Joe, including title contenders such as the Los Angeles Clippers, Milwaukee Bucks and Denver Nuggets. He averaged only 6.8 points and 3.1 rebounds per game while shooting a rough 40.6 percent from the field during his last National Basketball Association campaign, split between the Utah Jazz and Houston Rockets.

Though no longer in his prime, Johnson, 38, boasts a 17-year career in the National Basketball Association.

In his career, he's averaged 16.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.9 assists.
