Brooklyn Nets swingman Joe Johnson, who will be a free this offseason, said he would not rule out a return to Brooklyn but will be looking to join a winning situation rather than seeking the highest offer, according to Fred Kerber of the New York Post (Feb. 2).
Johnson, 34, is in the final year of a six-year, $124M deal he signed in 2010 with the Atlanta Hawks. The Nets acquired Johnson after the second-year of his deal.
"I just want a winning situation," said Johnson. "It's not going to be to no highest bidder or nothing like that."
The Nets are 12-37 this season, nowhere near playoff contention. However, Johnson reportedly has no interest in receiving a buyout from the Nets that would allow him to potentially move on to a contender for the remainder of this season.
Johnson is averaging 11.3 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.8 assists in his 14th NBA season.
