The Nets locked up Cam Johnson to a long-term deal within the first hour of free agency on Friday night. Johnson agreed to a four-year, $108 million contract to stay in Brooklyn. The deal was first reported by ESPN, and confirmed by The Post. “I’ve really come to appreciate the people here and that means a tremendous amount to me,” Johnson said before entering free agency. “I haven’t made any decisions business-wise yet, but I definitely have factors I’m considering and I am warming up to New York, certainly.” -via New York Post / June 30, 2023
Largely expected to get a four-year, $90 million deal that matched Bridges’ pact, Johnson’s market started to explode into the nine-figure range. “I know a lot of people probably want him on different teams. I just tell him, ‘I know money and this and that, but just know where I want you. And you can’t leave your twin!’ ” Bridges told The Post. “But he knows. He knows that I never want him to go. And I hope that he stays and they offer him a really good deal. Get my boy paid and go from there.” -via New York Post / June 30, 2023
