Restricted free-agent forward Amir Johnson has agreed to re-sign with the Detroit Pistons for an estimated $12 million over three years, NBA front-office sources told ESPN.com on Thursday.
I am hoping Amir signs on the line ASAP so he can play the last of the Pistons summer league games. If you are itching to see some Amir highlights, like I am, watch this video of his D League highlights. Here’s another video interview with Amir that is packed with some highlights when he put up his NBA career high.
UPDATE: Justin Rogers from MLive found a link form a San Antionio paper that claims Amir Johnson turned down more money from the Spurs to stay in Detroit.
I would have to agree with Justin that this seem quite odd because Amir was a restricted free agent, so whatever The Spurs would have offered, Detroit could match. I don’t know if I buy this story, I guess we will have to wait and see.
