Which NBA players are the most likely to leave Miami?
Miami Heat forward James Johnson has been linked to the New York Knicks, but the New Jersey Nets are reportedly the team he would most like to play for.
According to a report by USA Today, Johnson and Nets general manager Billy King met Monday night to discuss a possible deal.
Johnson was traded to the Knicks last year and has spent the past two seasons with the team.
King and Johnson met with the Nets on Monday night and the Nets reportedly expressed interest in retaining Johnson.
Johnson has not played for the Knicks this season.
The Nets have struggled in the past few seasons, posting the worst record in the NBA this season with a 16-48 record.
Johnson averaged 9.5 points and 3.3 rebounds per game last season for New Jersey.
The 27-year-old Johnson is coming off a torn Achilles’ tendon and has missed most of the past four seasons with injuries.
He was traded by the Nets to the Heat in February.
