Former Missouri State star Alize Johnson agrees to multi-year deal with Brooklyn Nets

Alize Johnson was finally given an opportunity in the NBA to prove himself and he didn't disappoint.

Now he's been given a multi-year deal to continue to play basketball at the highest level because that's where he belongs.

The former Missouri State star has agreed to a multi-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Sunday morning. The deal is worth up to $4.1 million.

Sunday's "Woj bomb" said Johnson could have taken more guaranteed money elsewhere but he wanted to stay with the Nets.

With the Nets, Johnson will compete for a championship alongside the likes of the league's greats in Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving.
