All-Star Weekend begins Friday, February 14 in New Orleans.

Release:

Johnson, who will be participating in his seventh All-Star Game, will be making his first appearance in the three-point contest.

The 13-year pro from Arkansas is shooting .389 (86-221) from behind the arc this season. Johnson made an NBA-season-high-tying 10 three-pointers Dec. 16 vs. Philadelphia and his 10 threes rank second on the Nets’ all-time single-game three-point field goals made list. Johnson is also one of two players this season to make eight or more three-pointers in a game on multiple occasions (Stephen Curry). Johnson is tied for ninth in Nets’ history in made three-pointers (234) and 11th among active NBA players (1,515).

Johnson will be the third Nets’ player to participate in the three-point contest, joining Anthony Morrow (2012) and Drazen Petrovic (1992).
