Blogging from the gorgeous 80th Street beach in Sea Isle, Amir Johnson is coming back to the Sixers.
Per Woj, who appears to take no days off whatsoever:
Free agent Amir Johnson is finalizing a one-year deal to return to the 76ers, league source tells ESPN.

Sports Illustrated’s Jake Fischer added that it’s for the league minimum, which is about $2.39 million. He made $11 million last year.
In 74 games last season with the Sixers, Johnson recorded 4.6 points per game and 4.5 rebounds a game. But his leadership and especially his hustle were probably big factors into a return to Philadelphia.
It’s probably safe to assume Kyle O’Quinn won’t be a Sixer. He was garnering some interest from the Sixers earlier in the free agency period.
Carry on with the rest of your Fourth of July activities.
