According to sources (Adrian Wojnarowski), the Hawks and Nets are in discussions about a trade involving Joe Johnson. Wojnarowski says a decision can be made as soon as Sunday, today. I think this is a perfect opportunity to jump-in and pick up some shooters, while freeing up the front-court logjam.
It would be a three-way traded among the Nets, Hawks, and Jazz.
Nets would get:
Hawks would get:
Al, Watson, Bell
Jazz would get:
Marvin Williams, Anthony Marrow, and John Jenkins, future picks and/or small trade exception (from Nets in order to make the difference match up)
Nets want Joe Johnson; Hawks play ISO ball (Al) and only have Teague as their sole PG on the roster (Watson) also losing SG Joe Johnson (Bell), Jazz get three excellent shooters.
SF, 6’9, in 2011-2012 season shot 43% FG, and 40% 3p FG (shot 50% 3p FG in playoffs against Boston, a great defense)
SG, 6’5, Career: shot 45.1% FG, and 42.6% 3p FG
SG, 6’4, Career: shot 45% FG, and 44% 3p FG
Jazz flip Al (free up time for Kanter and Favors), Watson (4th string PG), Bell (who cares) for three ELITE shooters, especially from 3 point land.
A lot better than signing Josh Howard to ball-hog and throw bricks at the rim!!
