Pistons Sign Joe Johnson, Likely Releasing Michael Beasley

The Detroit Pistons add more to their depth on the lineup/bench as they sign 38-year-old guard Joe Johnson to a one year, partially guaranteed deal. 

Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes reports that the team plans to ‘likely’ release forward Michael Beasley correspondingly to make a roster spot for Johnson. 

Johnson is coming off an MVP season in Ice Cube’s BIG3 Basketball League, where he broke the single-season record for most points and assists. 

He also led the league in points, assists, 4-point plays, and six game-winning shots. 

The former University of Arkansas standout is projected to be paired in depth with fellow guard Derrick Rose for the Pistons’ backcourt. 

He last played for the Utah Jazz, before being traded to the Houston Rockets in the 2017-2018 season.
