The Brooklyn Nets continue to add pieces around their Big 3 of Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving. After recently bringing back Bruce Brown, the team has now signed NBA journeyman James Johnson to a one-year deal, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski:

The Nets will be the ninth team Johnson plays for after splitting time between the Dallas Mavericks and New Orleans Pelicans last season. Ahead of the March trade deadline, the Mavs sent the 34-year-old to the Pels in the JJ Redick deal.

In 51 games between both organizations, Johnson averaged 7.2 points and 3.5 rebounds per night. While he's not a huge offensive weapon, Johnson brings a veteran presence and stout defense to the Nets. He gives Brooklyn frontcourt depth and is a physical presence in the paint who takes pride in stopping bigs.

The Nets don't need much more pieces with a superstar trio already in place, but it's nice to see them bringing in role players to complement the Big 3. An NBA title is a very realistic possibility again next season if KD, Harden, and Irving can stay healthy because that was their kryptonite in 2020/21.

It will be interesting to see if Brooklyn adds any more players to the fold by the end of the week.
