Johnson, 25, appeared in 61 games with the Raptors last season, averaging 4.4 points and 2.5 rebounds. He was originally drafted by the Pistons with the No. 8 overall pick in 2015.
Per Scotto, Johnson has been working out with Nets team and staff members in Los Angeles this offseason.
“Currently, Brooklyn has 13 players on fully guaranteed contracts, with DeAndre’ Bembry on a partial guarantee and Alize Johnson on a non-guaranteed deal,” wrote Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors. “If the team buys out or trades DeAndre Jordan, a roster spot could open up for Johnson or another veteran free agent, such as Isaiah Hartenstein.”
Hartenstein, 23, is 7-0 and recently held a workout in front of several teams. The Cavaliers were among the attendees, but it is not known if the Nets were represented.
Hartenstein declined his player option of about $1.8 million earlier this summer after playing the best basketball of his career with the Cavs, following a March trade with the Nuggets.
In Cleveland, he averaged 8.3 points and 6.0 rebounds in 16 games, admirably relieving center Jarrett Allen when called upon. But Hartenstein likely will not be returning to the Cavs.
