The New Jersey Nets have signed Armon Johnson for the final three games of the season, general manager Billy King announced on Friday.

Johnson has played in five games with the Nets this season, averaging 4.4 points in nine minutes per contest. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound guard was drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers with the 34th pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. Since then, he's played a combined 44 games in the NBA, averaging 3.0 points and 1.1 assist per game.

Johnson also played six games this season with the NBA D-League's Idaho Stampede, averaging 11.0 points, 6.8 assists and 4.5 rebounds while shooting 38.4 percent from the field.

The 23-year old will be available on Saturday against the Milwaukee Bucks, Monday against the Philadelphia 76ers and again during the Nets' season finale Thursday, April 26 against the Toronto Raptors.
