The Brooklyn Nets shooting guard says doesn't regret re-signing with the Atlanta Hawks in the 2010 free agency. He was one of the 10 players on the Bulls shortlist during the free agency frenzy which saw superstars like LeBron James and Dwyane Wade becoming free agents. In the end Chicago did make contact with Johnson at the time but never offered him a max deal like Atlanta did. Eventually he opted to re-sign with the Hawks for a reported $119 million six-year deal.
Johnson ended up in Brooklyn after his stint with Atlanta
 
"I don't think we got to that (contract) point with Chicago,'' Johnson said. "My whole thing was, honestly, in Atlanta, we were progressing every year further and further. We were becoming a better team. A lot of the young guys were coming into their own.
 
"Looking at it then, I thought it was a better situation.''

"Really, Jannero didn't have to sell me on Chicago,'' said Johnson, who has a career average of 17.6 points per game. "I understood what this Bulls team and what this organization were all about. Chicago is a great town, man.
 
"And Derrick Rose, he's arguably one of the best point guards in the league. Getting a chance to play off a point guard like him seemed like a great possibility. But landing here in Brooklyn with Deron (Williams) makes it even better.''
 
Bulls center Joakim Noah said he was a bit surprised to see Johnson shoot jumpers during the summer of 2010 at the Chicago facilities.
 
"It was kind of weird because we had just come off playing Atlanta in the playoffs and it was always a war with them,'' Noah said. "But I just showed Joe love.
 
"Jannero, he's a class act and probably one of the best teammates I've ever had. Your friends reflect who you are. I know that Joe is his man, so I respect Joe off Jannero because I spent time with Jannero and know how he is.''
 
Noah also said he was impressed with what Johnson had to offer as a player.
 
"I know that Joe is a real good dude and he's a hell of a player,'' Noah said. "He's one of the best.
 
"At the end of the day, this is a business. He got a lot of cheeseburgers, man. He got a lot of bread. He probably got $40 million more than we could have given him.''
