He'll be getting paid as much as Jeremy Lin, but his contact is bigger. for 5 years compared to Lin's 3 years.

Miami will match. Tyler is a damn good rotation caliber guard.

And if Durant signs with Miami, he'll be the starting point guard with Dragic being traded to create space.

The kid is a stud. Is it official?

I would rather have him start than Dragic. Not even kidding either.

After giving Dragic a full season, and seeing his inconsistencies dip into the playoffs as well, I'm with you.


Tyler is an athletic two-way combo guard, who can hit 3's at a 38 percent clip and is very pesky defensively.

Gotta match it

Yep. Given the way we play, Tyler offers more.

I'm sick of seeing Dragic try to do anything in the half court. Tyler is so much more dynamic and multi faceted. He isn't a superstar or anything, but he has that innate ability to make plays happen when nothing is going. Much like a Nate Robinson or Jamal Crawford.

Damm not a bad move by the Nets they need to sign some young player since they don't have their 1st round pick next year.

But that's alot of money for a combo guard that hasn't done much in the NBA but then again when Courtney Lee, Affalo, Lin, Delly have received similar contract then why not. Johnson isn't necessarily better than any of the above players but he has a higher ceiling.

Would have preferred Allen Crabbe, but I guess this will do. Guy's game reminds me of Delonte West..

Love this move for us, hopefully they don't match. Every time I see this guy play good things happen. Exciting player to watch too.

I love TJ. These contracts are ridiculous! What a time for basketball players to be alive. It'll be sad to see him go. He plays with heart. By the way, TJ can not play the point. Richardson was much better at point.

He's not even worth $5 million.

There are dozens of better players in places like D-League, FIBA Americas, China, and some of the worst European leagues.

Bump that up to hundreds upon hundreds if you count the good European leagues.
