Joe Johnson

  1. Report: Lou Williams reaches agreement with Atlanta Hawks

    Jul 10, 2012, 5:42 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Three

    Joe Johnson and his points are gone, headed to Brooklyn. Jamal Crawford has been gone for a while as the gunner off the bench for the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks need some buckets from the perimeter. Enter Lou Williams. Williams, the 76ers leading scorer last season despite coming off the bench, has reached an agreement…

  2. Dwight Howard trade talks stall with Cleveland out as third team

    Jul 10, 2012, 2:19 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    If Dwight Howard is going to be a Brooklyn Net anytime soon, either Magic and Nets are going to have to find another team to facilitate this or they are going to have to figure out a two-team trade. Something they have been unable to do for a year. Talks are still going on to…

  3. Details of potential Dwight Howard trade leaking. Magic get Lopez, picks.

    Jul 9, 2012, 4:54 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    UPDATE 4:54 pm: The Clippers may be the fourth team in the deal, reports both Ken Berger at CBSSports.com and Chad Ford at ESPN. The Clippers would send a first round pick to the Nets for MarShon Brooks, then the Nets would ship that pick to the Magic as part of the deal. This appears…

  4. 50 Observations about NBA Free Agency

    Jul 9, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    From time to time, I drop random observations because it’s too long for a tweet and too short for a full post. Also because it allows me to crack jokes, which is really the reason I’m here. That and the money. Mostly the money. Anyway, it’s been a crazy week of free agency. Here are…

  5. Dwight Howard trade rumors heating up; maybe to Nets in three-team deal

    Jul 8, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    The Magic nearing a deal to ship out Ryan Anderson signals one thing — they are entering rebuilding mode, no joke, no holdovers. Which means Dwight Howard rumors are picking up steam, fast. How much steam depends on who you ask — some sources sugest the deal could be done as soon as Monday, but there…

  6. Thursday And-1 links: Maybe Indy will not match Hibbert offer

    Jul 5, 2012, 7:39 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert, Tim Duncan

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • I have said I expect the Indiana Pacers to match the max-offer (four…

  7. Nets push Teletović to take mini mid-level so Howard, other doors open up

    Jul 5, 2012, 3:47 PM EDT

    brooklyn-nets-logo-0

    The Nets like to make things hard on themselves. But they apparently have just cleared one more hurdle to making the very difficult trade to bring Dwight Howard to Brooklyn a little more possible. They may have reached a deal to get Mirza Teletović to take a smaller offer than they verbally agreed to, which…

  8. The Inbounds: Deron Williams and the meaning of Brooklyn cool

    Jul 4, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Let’s start here: Deron Williams did not decide to re-sign with the Brooklyn Nets because it was his best chance to win an NBA title. And that’s OK. Williams made a lot of comments about how winning a title would dictate his decision. But the mere fact that he limited his options to Brooklyn and…

  9. Williams, bold moves make Nets a fun team… for now

    Jul 4, 2012, 2:19 AM EDT

    Deron Williams, "Jay-Z" Sean Corey Carter , Beyonce Knowles

    The Brooklyn Nets are a much better team right now than they were 72 hours ago. They will walk onto the court at the Barclays Center with an entertaining lineup, a team with offensive firepower, something you couldn’t really say about the squad last seen in New Jersey (they move to Brooklyn this fall). They…

  10. Winderman: Dallas blew it all up for this?

    Jul 3, 2012, 9:40 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks' Nowitzki walks off the court during a timeout against the Oklahoma City Thunder during their NBA Western Conference quarter-final playoff basketball game in Dallas

    The Mavericks blew it up for this? To finish as runner-up for Deron Williams? The Mavericks put aside one of Dirk Nowitzki‘s precious few quality remaining seasons on the promise of potential hope? Yes, the Mavericks still could recover next summer, if Chris Paul doesn’t reach a new deal with the Clippers, if Dwight Howard…

  11. Deron Williams to stay with Nets, lead them into Brooklyn

    Jul 3, 2012, 7:46 PM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    No. Sleep. ‘Till Brooklyn. For Deron Williams. The most coveted free agent of this summer tweeted out late Tuesday that he had made a very tough decision — with a picture of the Brooklyn Nets new logo attached to the tweet. The two sides agreed to a five-year, $98 million deal (he cannot actually sign…

  12. Dwight Howard to Nets: It can happen, but is it likely?

    Jul 3, 2012, 12:12 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    The Orlando Magic are talking to the New Jersey Nets about a possible Dwight Howard deal. And there are a few ways — complex ways — that a deal could come together. But if you think it’s a foregone conclusion — and I’m looking at you, Nets fans — you should check out what Ken…

  13. Report: Magic, Nets in talks to send Dwight Howard to Brooklyn

    Jul 3, 2012, 8:25 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Twenty-four hours ago it looked like the Nets were moving on from Dwight Howard, but things change fast in free agency. I say change fast because a version of this deal wasn’t good enough for Orlando at last year’s trade deadline and even recently we heard the sides were far apart, but suddenly everything has…

  14. Well, now what Dwight Howard? Report says maybe Mavs.

    Jul 3, 2012, 2:34 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    I’ll say this for LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony — it wasn’t pretty and drew the wrath of many upon them, but they ended up where they wanted to go. Dwight Howard is struggling with that. His plan to end up on the Brooklyn Nets — already a public relations disaster as he disavows saying…

  15. Report: Jazz trade Devin Harris to Hawks for Marvin Williams

    Jul 2, 2012, 7:59 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Utah Jazz - Game Three

    The Hawks have added another point guard to the mix — they have traded for Devin Harris from Utah, sending Marvin Williams back to the Jazz, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. This comes on the heels of Atlanta shipping out All-Star Joe Johnson and his anchor of a contract for a bevy of players. Hawks…

  16. Joe Johnson trade to Nets nearly complete, Brooklyn out of Dwight Howard chase

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:04 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The Nets seem to be thinking about having an interesting team to open the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn with next season, the years beyond that be damned. And Dwight Howard be damned. He has said Brooklyn is the place he wants to be but when this trade for Joe Johnson goes through they would be…

  17. The Inbounds: Free Agency and the Magical Musical Chairs

    Jul 2, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Suns guard Nash looks to drive on Mavericks center Mahinmi during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy.  If the Pacers don’t match Hibbert’s offer, then Batum could go to Minnesota. If the Bulls don’t match Asik’s offer,…

  18. Free Agency Rundown 7.1.12: The movers, they are a shaking

    Here’s what’s going on with free agency news and rumors as the moratorium period began Sunday night at 12:01 a.m..Do not, by any means, consider this comprehensive. There’s so much going on, we’re just trying to get you an overview. (HT: Hoopshype, IAmAGM.com) Atlanta Hawks Well, for starters, they’re exploring a deal for Joe Johnson…

  19. Report: Nets and Gerald Wallace agree to 4-year, $40 million deal

    Jul 1, 2012, 11:31 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets  v Los Angeles Lakers

    Crash cha-ching. The New York Post reports and Yahoo Sports report that the Nets have reached a verbal agreement with forward Gerald Wallace to return on a 4-year, $40 million  contract. It’s not known whether the last year is fully or partially guaranteed, but that issue is a big one for determining the value of…

  20. Report: Nets in talks with Hawk for Joe Johnson trade

    Jul 1, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson

    Talk about big ticket item. Yahoo Sports reports that the New Jersey Nets are in talks with the Atlanta Hawks about a potential trade for Joe Johnson. In a potential move that would cripple their aspirations of eventually acquiring Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard, the Brooklyn Nets are engaged in talks with the Atlanta Hawks…

  21. Deron Williams meets with Nets and Mavericks on Monday

    Jun 30, 2012, 10:58 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

From ESPN.com: Deron Williams, the most coveted player in this summers free-agent class, will meet with representatives from the Brooklyn Nets and Dallas Mavericks on Monday before deciding which team to sign with, a source…

  22. Danny Ferry takes offer, is new Atlanta Hawks GM

    Jun 25, 2012, 11:12 AM EDT

    Danny Ferry

    The report came a little out of left field Sunday night but now it is appears to be more than just a rumor. Danny Ferry has accepted the offer to become the new Atlanta Hawks general manager, the team announced on its Web site Monday. Ferry will replace long-time GM Rick Sund, who stays on…

  23. Report: Hawks offer GM job to Ferry… but they have one?

    Jun 25, 2012, 1:49 AM EDT

    danny-ferry-apjpg-93fe194051c36202_large

    The Atlanta Hawks have a general manager in Rick Sund… but they are offering the job to someone else. Specifically, they are offering it to Danny Ferry, the current Spurs assistant and former GM in Cleveland during the LeBron years. The deal is close, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The Atlanta Hawks have…

  24. Jordan Crawford keeps his basketball shoes in the refrigerator

    Jun 7, 2012, 4:23 PM EDT

    _ylt=AibFObPLZf732T

    NBA players collect shoes. Not everybody goes Joe Johnson on it, but these are basketball fans who have money and the hookups to get whatever shoes they want. They don’t pay for most of them. They go nuts. Wizards’ guard Jordan Crawford keeps his in the fridge. At least if you think the photo he…

  25. The Hawks are not talking extension with Josh Smith, for some reason

    May 26, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Hawks forward Smith reacts after a shot in the first half during their game against the Celtics in Game One of their NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs basketball game in Atlanta

    Trying to figure out the Hawks’ approach to Josh Smith is a trick. They don’t regularly campaign for Smith for the All-Star teams and have never made a fuss when he’s not selected despite it routinely being pretty terrible. They wouldn’t give him a big deal when he was a restricted free agent in 2008,…
