4. Joe Johnson, Forward
Joe Johnson once signed one of the most lucrative contracts in NBA history and was one of the best players in the league. Unfortunately, Father Time has caught up to Johnson like he does with everyone and the now 37-year-old is a shell of his former self.
Even though he would be a great locker room and bench presence, his game hasn’t transitioned to the new age. He’s a 6-foot-7 small-ball 4 who can’t shoot threes. Although he has other ways of getting his buckets, that presents a problem for the Bucks.
He likes to play through post-ups and on the elbow. This is the same area of the floor Antetokounmpo and Middleton often like to run their moves through and it would create a logjam on the court. He’s likely to take a minimum contract on a championship-caliber team so Milwaukee might not fit what he’s looking for anyway. However, if he does look their way, the Bucks should politely pass.
