Call me crazy, but I think Atlanta won this trade. Yes, it is basically some bad contracts and roster filler for an All Star, but is Joe Johnson worth the $90 million that’s left on his deal? I guess that’s for Mikhal and Jiggaman to decide.
Word is that Deron will consider staying with the Nets now that the Nets have made the move.
The Nets and Hawks have agreed in principle to complete the Joe Johnson trade, league sources tell Y! Sports.

I don’t understand why the Nets would do this when Dwight all but said he was on his way… I guess they don’t want to deal with the antics. Who can blame them? Hopefully Deron comes back and they have some cash left over to pay Kris Humphries.
