Report: Nets, Hawks close to Joe Johnson trade
The Brooklyn Nets are close to giving Deron Williams another reason to re-sign ... or a reason to leave. Adiran Wojnarowski of Yahoo! sports reports in a tweet that The Nets and Atlanta Hawks are close to a deal that would send Joe Johnson to Brooklyn, and that a decision should be reached at some point today.
