American swingman B.J. Johnson will play pro hoops abroad for the first time after signing for Brisbane Bullets in the National Basketball League in Australia.
Johnson arrives in Australia after spending the first four years of his pro career entirely in the United States, splitting time between various teams in the NBA and the NBA G League. Most recently, he played for the Long Island Nets in the NBA G League, where he averaged 18.4 points and 5.7 rebounds per game in the NBA G League's Bubble season.
He joins a Bullets team that is in the midst of a playoff battle in the NBL, where they currently sit in sixth place in the league standings with a 10-12 record ahead of their next game against league leaders Melbourne United. He joins fellow Americans Vic Law and Lamar Patterson on the roster.
