A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that Tyler Johnson has agreed to sign a $50 million offer sheet with the Brooklyn Nets later this week.
Johnson can sign the deal on Thursday, according to the person who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the talks are ongoing. Once it’s signed, the Miami Heat — the team that Johnson has played with for the last two seasons — would have three days to match the terms.
Yahoo Sports first reported the agreement.
Johnson was undrafted out of Fresno State two years ago and has averaged 7.4 points in 68 games with the Heat over his first two pro seasons. Johnson shot 49 percent last season, up from 42 percent in his rookie year.
