Mikal Bridges wants Brooklyn Nets to pay Cam Johnson
It’s no secret that one of the more important matters that the Brooklyn Nets have to address how much would the team pay to keep talented restricted free-agent wing Cam Johnson from leaving. Regardless of the price, Mikal Bridges wants the Nets to pay Johnson to keep him in Brooklyn.
Johnson is expected to command a contract in the neighborhood of four years and $90 million, according to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype. Per Bleacher Report, Brooklyn’s worst-case scenario would be if a team, such as the Houston Rockets, offered Johnson a deal that far exceeded the aforementioned figure.
Johnson, 27, has been great for Brooklyn ever since the came to the Nets via the Kevin Durant trade. In 25 regular-season games for Brooklyn, Johnson averaged 16.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 1.4 steals while shooting 46.8% from the field and 37.2% from three-point land. He dazzled in the playoffs as well as he averaged 18.5 points per game, including dropping 28 points in Game 2 of Brooklyn’s first-round series against the Philadelphia 76ers.
