atlanta is smart of getting rid of joe johnson and that horrible contract.

f**king nets are stupid for taking all of this salary. if they get the backcourt of williams and johnson, those are two players who need to ball in their hands to be effective.

Joe Johnson did fine with Steve Nash not too long ago...

nash is a pure PG. Deron likes to shoot the ball alot more than nash.

Williams/Johnson/Wallace would be lethal

With Humphries and Lopez as their bigs (presuming they resign Humphries), that isn't a terrible team...it'll sure be a fun team to watch in Brooklyn

"no sleep, til Brooooklyn!!!"

Nets won 22 games in a 66 game season with basically Deron. Having a healthy Wallace and Joe is a strong push for a good playoff seed if Deron does his thang doe

Deron had to shoot a lot last year but has had several years where he averaged almost 11 dishes a game. I think he is a pure point guard who can shoot a lot if needed

They use their recent signings as trade bait (Joe and Wallace) ?

Maybe?

they cant be traded once acquired. unless sign and trade, or an initial 3 team deal.

MarShon Brooks
Tyshawn Taylor

Good info. I heard that the Joe Johnson move isn't even set in stone until July 11th. The Nets can back out if they want.

definitely. I think they can be traded but not until towards trade deadline ish.
If Johnson goes to Brooklyn and Deron/Wallace re-sign, I'd like to see my Lakers swap Bynum for Howard, even without a promise of an extension from Dwight.

Damn!

ATL is home for Dwight and the guy is friends with Anthony Morrow and Josh Smith apparently...I'd rather him go to ATL than f**kin Brooklyn, Dallas, or hell, even the Lakers

Atlanta w/attractive trade pieces in Al Horford, Jeff Teague & just picked up extra first round pick if they wanted to make bid


if ATL traded Horford and Teague in a package for D12. They would have like 2 good players on the whole team lol

Um, okay.

They both suck compared to Big Cuz

Jk

But they both are bigger douches than Cuz, and that's hard to do.
Danny Ferry has been on the job for a week and he should already be given Executive of the Year for dumping Joe Johnson and Marvin Williams. Those were just horrible contracts.

Seriously cannot believe that the Nets would make this deal, end any chance of getting Howard, and taking on such a bad contract.
