• Breaking News: Atlanta Is Trading Joe Johnson To Brooklyn

    Summary of 5 articles · Updated Jul 3, 2012
    Johnson is off to Brooklyn, now. Joe Johnson and his $89 million contract are headed to Brooklyn. A backcourt of Williams and Johnson instantly makes Brooklyn interesting next season, and a possible playoff contender. Brooklyn also gets to keep MarShon Brooks and Gerald Green, as well as their own first-round pick, three pieces Atlanta coveted. As presently constructed, the deal would include Johnson going to Brooklyn in exchange for Jordan Farmar, Anthony Morrow, Johan Petro, Jordan Williams and a 2013 protected first-round draft pick originally owned by the Houston Rockets, reports David Aldridge of NBA.com, and NetsDaily.com. If Deron Williams comes back – and we’re not sure whether this deal helps or hurts – New Jersey is suddenly a dangerous playoff team, albeit one that’ll probably provide a few highlights in the first round outside of Mikhail Prokhorov doing something memorably stupid before falling to a team that actually knows what they’re doing.
