Nets’ Cam Johnson listed as #10 on B/R’s top free-agent list

Brooklyn Nets wing Cam Johnson is ranked as the 10th-best free-agent this upcoming offseason, according to an recent article published by Bleacher Report. Johnson, 27, will be an restricted free-agent this summer after ending this season with the Nets as arguably the third option alongside Mikal Bridges and Spencer Dinwiddie.

Johnson came to Brooklyn as part of the Kevin Durant trade and during his 29 games with the Nets, the former North Carolina Tar Heel showed that he brought more to the table than just shooting and defense. Over the last quarter of the season, Johnson showed an ability to create shots for himself and other through his ball-handling and that opened up options for Brooklyn to score down the stretch.

There have been reports that executives around the league believe that Johnson will command a contract of around four years and $90 million in value on the free-agent market. If that prediction proves to be true, the Nets will have to ponder that as they consider resigning him or having to match an offer sheet from another team. Here’s what B/R had to say about Johnson as a free-agent:

Cameron Johnson has shown a little more off-the-dribble pop this season, and his size makes him a decent defensive option against both 3s and 4s.

But his biggest value remains as a catch-and-shoot threat. For his career, he’s hit 39.3 percent of his three-point attempts. This season alone, his catch-and-shoot effective field-goal percentage was 61.9”
