Sixers Add Tyler Johnson Ahead of Game vs Boston
With the Sixers down a bunch of players on the reserve/COVID list, the team is bring in former Heat, Suns and Nets guard Tyler Johnson.
Johnson played 39 games last season in Brooklyn and has 348 games of NBA experience.
For his career, Johnson has averaged 9.9 points per game, with a career high of 13.7 during the 2016-17 season in Miami. He is a 32.9% 3-point shooter, but did make 36.4 last season and 38.9 the previous season with the Nets.
He is really more suited as a two-guard , who can play some point guard minutes when he needed.
There is still no given that the Sixers will be able to field a team tonight and are down six players at this time. Furkan Korkmaz has been ruled out and there is no guarantee that Joel Embiid (ankle), Danny Green (hip), and Tyrese Maxey (quad) suit up.
Johnson was brought on board with the NBA trying desperately to not cancel games.
