Tyler Johnson Signs With Brisbane Bullets

Free agent guard Tyler Johnson has agreed to a one-year deal with the Brisbane Bullets of the National Basketball League, the team announced in a press release. This will be Johnson’s first professional stint overseas.

Johnson holds 354 games of NBA experience during his career, making stops with the Heat, Suns, Knicks, Sixers and Spurs. The 30-year-old signed 10-day hardship contracts with Philadelphia and San Antonio last season.

Johnson’s best years have come in Miami, where he began his NBA career and remained in 2016 after the Heat matched a four-year, $50MM offer sheet from Brooklyn. He went on to average 13.7 points and 3.2 assists per game the following season, shooting 43% from the floor and 37% from deep.

Johnson went unselected in the 2014 NBA Draft after playing four seasons at Fresno State. He worked out for at least one NBA team this summer before committing to play in the NBL. In addition to Johnson, the Bullets also recently agreed to a deal with center Aron Baynes.
