Nets Sign Alize Johnson To Second 10-Day Contract

APRIL 1: The Nets have officially re-signed Johnson to a second 10-day deal, the team confirmed today in a press release. It’ll run through April 10, at which point Brooklyn will either have to let Johnson go or sign him to a rest-of-season contract.

MARCH 30: The Nets plan to sign forward Alize Johnson to a second 10-day contract, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweets.

Johnson made quite a splash in his Brooklyn debut, supplying 23 points, 15 rebounds and three assists in a loss to Utah on Wednesday. That was also his season debut.

His first 10-day deal is due to expire on Wednesday.

Johnson, 24, spent two seasons with the Pacers after being drafted 50th overall in 2018, but appeared in just 31 total games and played limited minutes, seeing more action with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants in the G League.

Johnson suited up for the Raptors 905 in the G League bubble this season, averaging 16.6 PPG and 13.5 RPG (second in the league) in 15 games (32.1 MPG).

With the Nets retaining Johnson, at least in the short team, they’ll remain at the league limit of 15 players (not counting two-ways). For the latest on roster openings, check out our update here.

    Alize Johnson deserves to be on the nets main roster reason why he is scoring all these points is cause he has more playing time nets should waive Landry shamet and have Alize Johnson on the main roster

      No point in waiving anyone now unless it’s to bring in another buy-out player. In that case, the Nets would cut Chris Chiozza and give Alize Johnson his two-way slot. All 17 players on the roster can play in the playoffs with revised rules for two-way players.

    I wonder if someone will sign Caleb swanigan clippers could a 10 day contract

    He’ll either be signed for the rest of the season after this contract or moved to a two-way contract while Chiozza would be dropped while the Nets pick up another player that was waived.

      I think the Nets will probably ride out the rest of the season with the roster as is. Alize Johnson will probably get a rest-of-season deal. There are so many players to rotate as is. I doubt anyone will come available that would be worth using an exception or even a minimum roster spot for. Once the Big 3 is all ready to go, many already active may not see much if any PT. DJ may have lost his PT to BG and LMA. TJ and Sham-wow looked good earlier, but if we get to playoffs with a healthy Big 3 + a returning Dinwiddie it’ll be hard for them to crack the rotation.
