Nick Johnson is headed overseas to play after signing a deal with the German club Bayern Munich, international journalist David Pick reports (via Twitter). The length and terms of the agreement are not yet known, nor if the pact includes and NBA-out clause.
The shooting guard was waived by the Magic last Saturday as Orlando pared down its roster to the regular season maximum of 15 players. Johnson appeared in four preseason games for the Magic, averaging 4.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 10.2 minutes per outing.
Johnson’s career NBA regular season numbers through 28 games, all with the Rockets, are 2.3 PPG, 1.4 RPG and 0.4 APG to accompany a shooting line of .347/.238/.680. The 23-year-old has a more extensive D-League résumé, appearing in 54 contests the past two seasons, averaging 13.3 PPG, 4.3 RPG and 3.7 APG to accompany a shooting line of .412/.303/.768.
