Chris “Extreme close up” Broussard reports that the Hawks are trading Joe Johnson to the Nets for… nothing(?) contingent on Deron WIlliams returning to the Nets.

My favorite part of this is that Dwight Howard isn’t getting traded to the Nets. It’s one this to demand a trade, it’s another thing to demand a trade to one specific team who has very little to offer. I haven’t looked at the numbers but Broussard believes that this will take up the rest of their cap room.

I’m just kidding about the “for nothing”. They are getting that contract off the books, which could be quite handy depending on how they spend the money.

Adrian Wojnarowski tweets “Nets would send Jordan Williams, Petro, Farmar, Morrow and a sign-and-trade of Stevenson for Joe Johnson, sources tell Y!”

Well…. I like Morrow. It could be Houston’s pick which is lottery protected the next 3 years and becomes a second rounder after that.

"Catch you in the second round" - Jameer Nelson to Derrick Rose  after the two teams met on April 10.

Hawks spokesman Arthur Triche announced on Twitter earlier Monday that he was leaving two tickets for Nelson after the Magic guard was caught telling Bulls star Derrick Rose “catch you in the second round” after the two teams met on April 10."Things that make me happy about this job," Triche said on Twitter. "Taking a page out of Jerry Glanville’s book, I think I’ll follow through on Jameer’s request to catch Derrick Rose in the 2nd round."
