How bad is Joe Johnson's contract?
Despite the fact that Johnson is an All-Star level player in his prime, this is what the Brooklyn Nets have offered the Atlanta Hawks in a prospective trade for the two-guard, per ESPN's Marc Stein.
The most recent proposal, sources said Sunday night, would call for the Nets to send the expiring contracts of Jordan Farmar, Johan Petro, Anthony Morrow and Jordan Williams along with the signed-and-traded DeShawn Stevenson and a future first-round pick to Atlanta in exchange for Johnson.
Johan Petro. Jordan Farmar. Anthony Morrow. Jordan Williams. DeShawn Stevenson.
Oh my goodness.
That is one hell of a five-man unit of doom.
The Hawks are reportedly holding out for MarShon Brooks. Good on them.
Poor Joe Johnson. Poor Atlanta Hawks.
