Johnson, 38, earned another shot in the National Basketball Association with his performance in the 3-on-3 league.

The Detroit Pistons agreed on a partially guaranteed deal with veteran free-agent shooting guard Joe Johnson, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Johnson's return to the National Basketball Association gives the Big 3 a big success story, and it gives the former All-Star another shot at continuing his 18-year career. The rules (administered by the FIBA) differentiate the Big 3 from the NBA or basketball as we know it. Does it mean his next National Basketball Association season will turn out differently? Johnson won MVP of the BIG3 league this summer and clinched the championship for the Triplets with a game-winning three.

Johnson led the league in points with 175, more than 40 ahead of second most. He was obviously facing a different level of competition, but he still looked like a complete mismatch in talent compared to the rest of the league.

There had been signs that Johnson would be joining the Pistons this week.

Johnson's move makes it more likely that Carmelo Anthony could sign with the Nets, which were also courting Johnson whose played for seven National Basketball Association teams: The Boston Celtics, Phoenix Suns, Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets, Miami Heat, Utah Jazz and Houston Rockets.

"Iso Joe" is best known for his time with the Atlanta Hawks where he made six All Star teams, averaging more than 20 points per game from 2006 to 2012.
