Johnson agreed to terms with Corale Roanne on Saturday, Sportando.com reports.
The No. 25 overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft will take his talents to France for the remainder of the 2020 season. He last saw action stateside in the 2017-18 season, where he appeared in 18 games for the Clippers and Grizzlies, averaging 2.4 points and 1.7 rebounds in 5.4 minutes per contest.
Johnson was waived by the Grizzlies on Tuesday in order to make room for MarShon Brooks' 10-day contract.
Johnson was traded to the Grizzlies in exchange for James Ennis earlier in the season, though didn't play a significant role once arriving. He appeared in nine games, averaging 3.0 points and 2.0 rebounds across 6.7 minutes. It's possible the former late-first-round draft pick latches on with a 10-day deal somewhere else this season, though there is also a strong possibility we may have to wait until next season to see him again.
Johnson did not see the floor during Wednesday's 119-110 loss to the Bulls.
Johnson has been a healthy scratch in each of the last two games, combining for a grand total of 28 minutes in his four appearances since being dealt to the Grizzlies prior to the trade deadline. Unless this trend reverses in the very near future, Johnson can safely be left on the waiver wire.
Johnson was recalled from the G-League's Memphis Hustle on Wednesday.
Johnson has not appeared in a game for the Grizzlies since being traded to the team from the Clippers. In 26 G-League games this season for three different teams, he's averaged 13.3 points and 9.4 rebounds across 27.5 minutes.
Johnson provided 17 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and two steals during Thursday's loss at Sioux Falls.
The North Carolina product has fluctuated between leagues and teams lately but in his last seven G-League games, he has been able to produce a double-double in six of those, including Tuesday. During that span, Johnson is averaging monster numbers of 18.0 points and 12.6 rebounds. The 23-year-old has proven that no matter what team he is on, he is capable of generating outstanding performances.
Johnson was traded to the Grizzlies on Thursday for James Ennis, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Midway through his second NBA season, Brice Johnson has appeared in just 12 NBA games and has now been traded for a second time after being part of the deal that sent Blake Griffin to the Pistons. This appears to be a rebuilding Grizzlies team taking a chance on a young player in Johnson, but with the team already having a multitude of young frontcourt players in its rotation, it's hard to see where Johnson could find minutes this season. So, as a result, Johnson will likely continue spending majority of the regular season in the G-League.
Johnson was assigned to the G-League's Grand Rapids Drive, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.
Johnson was acquired from the Clippers in the trade that brought Blake Griffin to the Pistons, though it appears coach Stan Van Gundy might not have an immediate use for him. As a result, he'll be sent down to the G-League to probably see some run with the Drive.
Johnson is available to make his Pistons debut Thursday against Memphis, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.
It's unclear what kind of role Johnson will play with his new team. He appeared in just nine games for the Clippers, posting 1.8 points and 1.4 rebounds across 4.2 minutes per game.
Johnson, who was acquired from the Clippers on Monday, won't suit up in Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Along with Johnson, Blake Griffin and Willie Reed, who were also dealt to the Pistons, will be in street clothes, as the team likely targets Thursday's game against the Grizzlies or Saturday's game against the Heat for the trio to make their debuts. During his time with the Clippers, Johnson spent the bulk of the season in the G League and hadn't appeared at the NBA level since Dec. 18, and his outlook isn't likely to change much in Detroit. Look for Johnson to remain on the outside of head coach Stan Van Gundy's rotation.
Johnson has been traded to Detroit, along with Blake Griffin and Willie Reed in exchange for Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic and a first-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Johnson was merely a throw-in, as the real prize for the Pistons was All-Star Blake Griffin. After seeing action in only nine games with the Clippers, Johnson still doesn't have a direct path to playing time, so despite the change in scenery, he should still remain off the fantasy radar. Look for Johnson to slot in as depth in the frontcourt behind Griffin, Andre Drummond, Anthony Tolliver and Eric Moreland.
Johnson was recalled from the G-League on Sunday, Elliott Teaford of Southern California News Group reports.
Johnson has spent a large chunk of his season thus far in the G-League, playing in 17 games and averaging 11.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.0 block across 27.1 minutes. However, he'll earn the call-up to the big club ahead of Monday's game against the Hawks. The likelihood of Johnson seeing the floor in that contest is small and he's not someone to target for fantasy purposes considering he's yet to see double-digit minutes in a game with the Clippers this season.
Johnson was recalled from the G League's Agua Caliente Clippers on Sunday, Kevin Baxter of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Johnson was active for the Clippers' game Sunday against the Heat, but didn't play in the contest. He's appeared in just three of the Clippers' nine games to date, seeing no more than seven minutes in any of them.
Johnson posted 11 points (4-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 27 minutes in Friday's 111-104 preseason loss to the Lakers.
The second-year forward had a quiet preseason until Friday, a game which marked his first with more than 12 minutes of playing time. Johnson made the most of his opportunity, putting in a particularly impressive performance on the boards. The 23-year-old had a minimal role in his rookie campaign, spending most of his time in the D-League and appearing in only three regular-season contests for the Clippers. That could potentially change during the coming season, although Johnson still has veterans Sam Dekker and Montrezl Harrell ahead of him on the depth chart at power forward.
Johnson was recalled from the D-League on Monday, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.
During his latest stint with the Salt Lake City Stars, Johnson appeared in three contests, averaging 15.3 points and 6.7 rebounds in 24.3 minutes per game. The rookie out of North Carolina has not been a regular member of the Clippers' rotation.
Johnson was assigned to the D-League's Salt Lake City Stars on Sunday, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Johnson has appeared in just two contests for the Clippers this season after missing the majority of the year with a herniated disc in his back. In those appearances, he's totaled two points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across seven minutes. He will likely continue to not be a part of the Clippers' rotation for the remainder of the season.
Johnson was recalled from the D-League on Monday, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The rookie out of North Carolina has appeared in only one game for the Clippers after dealing with a herniated disc in his back, and he's highly unlikely to be an impact player at the NBA level over the final month of the regular season. In three games for the Salt Lake City Stars, Johnson posted averages of 9.0 points and 6.3 rebounds in 14.1 minutes.
Johnson was assigned to the D-League's Salt Lake City Stars on Tuesday, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Since being cleared to return to the court in February after spending all season recovering from a herniated disc, Johnson has made a lone three-minute appearance off the Clippers bench. While Johnson hasn't experienced any setbacks with the injury, the lack of playing time is less than ideal for a rookie, so heading to the D-League will give him the opportunity to gain some meaningful in-game reps. Don't expect Johnson to be included in the rotation once he rejoins the Clippers after the D-League stint.
Johnson (back) logged three minutes in Thursday's 123-113 loss to the Warriors, recording no points (0-1 FG) and two rebounds.
After suffering a herniated disc in October, Johnson had spent the last four-plus months recovering from the injury, and the Clippers elected to activate the rookie for the first time all season following his involvement in practices the last few weeks. Though Johnson logged some spot minutes, it's unlikely he'll see regular run in competitive contests, especially now that Blake Griffin is back to full health. The Clippers could opt to send the 22-year-old to the D-League in the near future in an effort to get him more in-game experience.
Johnson (back) is available for Thursday's game against the Warriors, marking the first time all season he's been able to suit up, Brad Turner of the LA Times reports.
After being inactive for every game prior to Thursday due to a herniated disc in his back, Johnson is getting a chance to suit up. There's a chance he'll be sent down to the D-League sooner than later to get his footing, but this is a promising sign for the rookie and the Clippers.
Johnson (back) took part in a scrimmage with the Clippers during practice Friday, Rowan Kavner of Clippers.com reports.
For the first time since training camp, Johnson was cleared to take contact during five-on-five work with the team, an encouraging sign as he attempts to return from a herniated disc in his back. The Clippers haven't handed down a specific timetable for Johnson's return, but the involvement in Friday's session is a step in the right direction nonetheless after three months of limited activity. Once he's cleared to play in games, Johnson figures to head to the D-League in order to get his conditioning back in order.
