JULY 7TH, 1:20am: Johnson has signed the offer sheet, Wojnarowski tweets. Miami will have three days to match Brooklyn’s offer.

JULY 3RD, 11:18am: The Nets will extend a $50MM offer sheet to Miami restricted free agent guard Tyler Johnson, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. The four-year offer, which Johnson has agreed to sign, has a player option for the final season, tweets TNT’s David Aldridge.

Miami will have three days to decide whether to match the offer once Johnson signs it, which can happen as soon as the moratorium is lifted on Thursday. The deal is heavily backloaded, tweets Miami-based capologist Albert Nahmad, with Johnson receiving $5.628MM in the first season and $5,881,260 in the second, followed by $18,858,765 in season three and $19,631,975 in season four.

The Heat’s decision on Johnson will be heavily influenced by what happens with Kevin Durant, who is meeting with Miami officials today, and Dwyane Wade, who is reportedly talking to other teams after being unhappy with the Heat’s initial offer. If Miami matches Brooklyn’s offer, its cap hit will be equal to Johnson’s yearly salary, Nahmad tweets. If he goes to Brooklyn, the Nets will have a $12.5MM cap hit each year.

Same as Clarkson. Was anticipating this deal, so what are you talking about. Do you not know who he is? He is a combo guard that has improved his PG ability, and can defend, get to the rim, and shoot. Thats pretty valuable right now

Clarkson was balling out. This dude is a bench player.

look at their numbers again, and then realize that Tyler Johnson is also a better defender than he is…I really like Clarkson, but this isnt surprising at all. And if the Heat actually got KD, which they wont, they would have traded Dragic, and made Tyler the starter, so the bench comment is irrelevant. Even if he is a bench guy, that money is fine for that role if he continues what he has done

The guy is a bench player because he plays behind D-Wade and Dragic. If Clarkson was coming off the bench behind Lou Williams/Nick Young I doubt he would be “balling”.

Well, this might be it. The Heat could go over the cap, and match on Tyler Johnson to keep him, but as I pointed out previously, the last 2 years on this offer sheet with the Nets are for $19 and $20 million respectively. The cap hit for the Nets would be $12.5 million those years, but the Heat would take the full cap hits. This makes it a lot harder to match. Really hope we can still keep him, but I dont think they’ll match it. Congrats to Tyler Johnson. He absolutely deserves it. Definitely was a Miami Heat… Read more »
