The Jazz agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent Joe Johnson on a two-year, $22 million deal.
The Jazz were interested on a number of wings and they'll go with Iso Joe on a short-term deal. Johnson just turned 35 this week and did show he still had a little left in the tank with the Heat, averaging 13.4 points, 2.8 boards, 3.6 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.5 treys on 51.8 percent from the field in those 24 games. He is likely only looking at minutes in the low 20s to help out the second unit. The Jazz look like a playoff contender. Jul 2 - 12:51 AM

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

The Heat would like to re-sign Joe Johnson, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

Jackson writes that the Heat could dangle their $2.9 million room exception, but if that's the furthest extent to which Miami is willing to go, there's little doubt that Johnson can find a more lucrative contract elsewhere.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson is uncertain regarding his potential return to the Heat.

"I think it was pretty good. I enjoyed it," Johnson said. "[But] I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future. I ain’t even trying to think about all that." The veteran should draw interest from a number of teams, and he'll likely look for the best combination of dollars and an opportunity to win in making his next move.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson had 11 points, eight rebounds and one assist during Wednesday's 99-91 defeat in Toronto, making 5-of-13 field goals with one 3-pointer.

Johnson missed his first 14 three-point attempts in the series before finally connecting tonight, and he's a combined 27.8 percent from deep in the playoffs. He was effective driving the ball in Game 4 and that's where he found his greatest success again tonight, going 4-of-6 within five feet of the hoop. The Heat will need an efficient two-way game from Johnson to avoid a season-ending loss in Miami on Friday.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson matched his playoff career-high two blocks against the Raptors on Monday, adding 15 points, two rebounds, three assists, three steals and no turnovers.

Johnson had a grand total of four blocks in his 2,703 minutes this season, so the old-man game was in full effect. Johnson logged more minutes at power forward with the Heat going small a ton. He's going to be charged with a lot of responsibility the rest of the way.
May 9 - 11:59 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson scored 16 points with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and one turnover in 42 minutes in Tuesday's overtime win over the Raptors.

Johnson was quiet in the previous series against the Hornets despite playing the second most minutes (33.7 per game) on the team behind Luol Deng, so it's a good sign to see him get off to a good start. He took a total of 19 shots for just the third time in his Heat career, connecting on seven of them.
May 3 - 11:32 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson hit 10-of-15 shots and three 3-pointers for 25 points, two rebounds, five assists and two steals to lead the Heat to a tough win over the Pistons on Tuesday.

The Heat caught Atlanta and moved into the No. 3 seed tonight and can seal it with a win at Boston on Wednesday. Look for the Heat to go all-in tomorrow night at Boston. Luol Deng had 17 points, 10 boards and three 3-pointers, Hassan Whiteside added 14 points, nine boards, two steals and three blocks, Goran Dragic had 16 points, five boards and four assists, and Dwyane Wade had 14 points on 6-of-16 shooting. Expect more of the same from the Heat starters on Wednesday. The Hawks only hope for the No. 3 seed is a win at Washington and a Heat loss at Boston.
Apr 12 - 10:15 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson scored 10 points during Wednesday's loss to the Lakers, making 4-of-9 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs with four boards, five assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

This is an encouraging sign for Johnson's fantasy owners -- he was on fire after joining the Heat in late February, but averaged a mere 4.8 points on 7-of-27 shooting (25.9 percent) over his previous four games. His cold spell notwithstanding, it makes sense to consider JJ in standard leagues.
Mar 31 - 1:33 AM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson made 1-of-8 from the field for two points with four rebounds, seven assists and four turnovers.

That's now four bad games in a row from Johnson, so it's probably time to move on in most leagues. Johnson's post-break efficiency has been among the best compared to pre-break, but his hot streak is over.
Mar 28 - 10:08 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson said he isn't worried about his recent struggles from the field.

"Honestly, man, I just try to take what the defense gives me," Johnson said. "We got so many guys on this team who can put it in the hole and create and make plays. Every night is not going to be my night, and I understand that. I’m not even trying to force that issue. I’m doing what I feel is necessary for the team. A win is a win. Doesn’t matter how you get it." He's averaging just 5.7 points, 2.7 boards, 4.0 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.3 3-pointers over his last three games, so his fantasy owners are probably running out of patience.
Mar 27 - 11:09 AM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson scored four points with one rebound, one assist and one turnover in 26 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

That's three bad games in a row from Johnson, averaging 5.7 points, 2.7 boards, 4.0 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.3 treys. He was clearly overachieving earlier this year with Miami, so he might be on the chopping block in fantasy leagues.
Mar 25 - 11:43 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson managed just five points, five assists, two rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes vs. the Spurs, hitting 2-of-6 shots with one 3-pointer.

The playing time is in line with Johnson's average since joining the Heat, and there's nothing to worry about here. He's shooting 55.4 percent over the past month, making the most of his modest 18.1 percent usage rate, but the Spurs tend to have a chilling effect on even the hottest shooters.
Mar 24 - 12:19 AM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson scored 28 points during a 112-104 overtime loss to the Raptors on Saturday, adding four rebounds, five assists and four 3-pointers in 43 minutes.

Obviously Dwyane Wade (thigh) not playing here helped his scoring output. That said, the change of scenery has been huge for Johnson. Since joining the Heat, Johnson averaged 15.5 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.9 treys. He's suddenly turned into a must-own player with sixth-round value since changing teams.
Mar 12 - 10:56 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson played 34 minutes vs. the Bucks on Wednesday, scoring 11 points on 5-of-9 shooting with four assists, two rebounds and one 3-pointer.

Johnson's efficiency has been remarkable in Miami -- in his previous five games he was shooting 60.4 percent, including 66.7 percent beyond the arc. That's an unsustainable clip but the veteran is being judicious with his shot selection, while benefiting from easier looks than he saw in Brooklyn. He's posting mid-round value and is worth owning until he cools off.

Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

When asked where he is in learning Miami's offensive sets, Joe Johnson said that he's "about 65, 70 percent there."

"Offensively, it's simple," Johnson said. "We really don't have a lot of play calls. We just kind of play off instincts and obviously a lot of pick and rolls. So it's not that complicated. But at certain spots you've got be in at times, I screw 'em up from time to time. I'm just playing through it." Since joining Miami, Johnson is averaging 14.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.6 3PM on an unsustainable 60.4 percent shooting.
