Free agent forward Joe Johnson worked out for the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday, according to ESPN”s Dave McMenamin.

Johnson, 38, didn’t play in the league last season after going unsigned in free agency. Though there were little to no rumors of him potentially being picked up over thesummer, Johnson’s dominant play in The Big 3 provided a spotlight on his vexing inability to garner legitimate interest from NBA teams on the open market.

The days of Johnson being anything close to a team’s primary offensive option have long been over. He was always overstretched for that role, and in his late-30s is absent the burst necessary to get to the rim – never a strength of his game in the first place. But his scoring ability persists regardless, as evidenced by his MVP performance in this summer’s edition of The Big 3. Johnson led the league in points, assists, field goals, and the vaunted four-point shot, as well as finishing second in 3-pointers made.

At a strong 6-foot-8, he has the shooting ability to stretch the floor away from the ball and requisite combination of size and skill to feast on overmatched defenders after switches. The biggest question facing Johnson’s NBA future comes on defense, where he struggled immensely as a member of the Houston Rockets in 2017-18.

Johnson has received a lot of interest from NBA teams over the past couple weeks. He's already held workouts with the Philadelphia 76ers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Brooklyn Nets, but the most recent rumors suggest the offense-needy Pistons could be the favorite to sign him.
