Person familiar with deal: Hawks agree to deal All-Star Joe Johnson to Nets for 5 players
A person familiar with the deal tells the AP the Hawks and Nets have agreed to a trade that would send All-Star guard Joe Johnson from Atlanta to Brooklyn.
The Nets will send guards Anthony Morrow, Jordan Farmar and DeShawn Stevenson and forwards Jordan Williams and Johan Petro to the Hawks, along with a draft pick Brooklyn received from Houston. The selection only belongs to the Nets if it is not a lottery pick.
The person confirmed the trade on condition of anonymity because it cannot become official until Stevenson signs as a free agent with Brooklyn. Free agents cannot be signed until July 11.
The Hawks also have agreed to deal forward Marvin Williams to the Utah Jazz for point guard Devin Harris, according to Utah CEO Greg Miller.
The deals were first reported by ESPN and several other media outlets.
