Brown signing qualifying offer to return to Nets

Restricted free agent Bruce Brown is signing his one-year qualifying offer of $4.7 million to return to the Brooklyn Nets, his agent, Ty Sullivan of CAA Basketball, told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Brown can become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

The Nets also agreed to a one-year deal with free agent James Johnson, his agent, Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports, told Wojnarowski.

A second-round pick acquired in a deal with the Detroit Pistons before last season, Brown played a crucial role for the star-studded Nets as someone who helped fill in all the gaps.

Brown, who turns 25 later this month, is listed as a 6-foot-4 guard but started 37 games at small forward and was frequently used as a screen-and-roller on offense.

Brown thrived in this role averaging 8.8 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists while shooting 55.6% from the field.

Johnson, 33, averaged 7.2 points and 3.5 rebounds in 51 games last season for the Dallas Mavericks and New Orleans Pelicans.
