Sources: Nets agree to Hawks trade

433

The Brooklyn Nets and Atlanta Hawks have agreed to terms on a deal that will bring Joe Johnson to New York, sources told ESPN.com. The deal is contingent on Deron Williams agreeing to stay with the Nets. The Hawks, according to sources, would get Anthony Morrow, Jordan Farmar, Jordan Williams, Johan Petro, DeShawn Stevenson (via sign-and-trade) and the Rockets' 2013 lottery protected first round pick. The Nets, in addition to Johnson, retain full $5 million mid-level exception (to sign Bosnian forward Mirza Teletovic) and $1.95 million bi-annual exception to keep adding to their roster. Brooklyn would also keep MarShon Brooks and free agent Gerald Green, while convincing Atlanta to take a first-round pick (via Houston), in this deal, sources said. The Nets had been involved in discussions to acquire disgruntled center Dwight Howard from the Orlando Magic but sources told ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard that the Magic front office "didn't want to dance" with the Nets. Though Howard said Brooklyn is the only team that, were he to be traded there, he would sign an extension. The Nets were amenable to that earlier this year, before Howard elected to waive his opt-out clause with Orlando. "Dwight blew it in March," a source told Broussard. From ESPN No Dwight for you. So...the Nets wanted Howard. They don't get him. Howard wants to go to the Nets. He's not going to. The Magic want to keep Howard. He doesn't want to stay. AKA Everyone loses. Brilliant
