Report: Amir Johnson is Returning to the Sixers
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.
