The Brooklyn Nets signed restricted free agent guard Tyler Johnson to a four-year, $50 million offer sheet on Sunday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. Johnson plans to join the Nets when he can officially on July 7.

According to TNT’s David Aldridge, the deal includes a player option after the third season.

The Miami Heat will have three days to match the offer once it is signed.

The Johnson signing is the latest edition of NBA teams with a lot of money throwing it around to players that you wouldn’t necessarily think would garner money up to $50 million.

Johnson played in 68 games over the last two seasons. He averaged 8.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.2 assists last season coming off the bench for the Heat. However, shoulder surgery cut his second season short.
