He recently starred in the BIG3 and became the first player to get an NBA contract after playing in Ice Cube's league.

Joe Johnson starred for many years with the Brooklyn Nets. Now he could end up with one of the Nets’ biggest conference rivals.

Michael Scotto of HoopsHype reported on Tuesday that the seven-time All-Star has a workout scheduled later this week with the Milwaukee Bucks. The team currently has one open roster spot to fill.

Johnson, 39, has not played in the NBA since 2018. He recently starred in the BIG3 and became the first player to get an NBA contract after playing in Ice Cube's league. Johnson received the contract from the Detroit Pistons in 2019 but was waived before the season began.

Milwaukee would be an intriguing destination for Johnson. He used to be teammates with Bucks center Brook Lopez in Brooklyn, with Milwaukee forward PJ Tucker in Houston, and with Bucks guard Jeff Teague in Atlanta.

The Bucks have also previously had interest in Iso Joe, who could offer them scoring punch off the bench at best and quality playoff experience at worst.
