Anybody know what happened to Joe Johnson? Yeah the same Joe Johnson who is a 7x All-Star, former All-NBA performer and ranks 6th on the Atlanta Hawks All-Time Leading Scorers list. The last time he was in a NBA game was during the 2018 NBA Playoffs when he played five minutes for the Houston Rockets in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors.
Since then, Joe Johnson has been a “free agent” in the NBA, but has still been involved with the game of basketball. In March 2019, Joe Johnson signed a deal to play in the BIG3, a three-on-three basketball league founded by Ice Cube and Jeff Kwatinetz.
