Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson could be on the Cavs radar. According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, the Cavaliers are considering a potential deal to acquire Joe Johnson from the Brooklyn Nets. Johnson, who will be making a whopping $24.8 million next season in the last season of his contract, would be a solid if pricey addition, as the Cavaliers could use someone of his well-rounded skillset in the worst way. The catch of course is the money, and as Windhorst correctly explained there is really only one way to get Johnson in a trade. Any deal that brings Johnson to Cleveland would require...

Dallas realized max free agents won't sign just because they have cap space. They adjusted, but they might lose DeAndre Jordan anyway. In the summer of 2012, the watershed moment of Deron Williams' free agency decision was the Nets' trade for Joe Johnson. Brooklyn was laughed at. Johnson was hideously overpaid entering the third year of a six-year, $124-million contract that made him, at the time, the highest-paid player in the NBA. But with something to show Williams, who a day or two earlier was reportedly leaning towards signing in Dallas, the Nets managed to retain the services of the...

Could the Nets dumping Joe Johnson actually help the Celtics? Ever since the Brooklyn Nets were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs this spring there has been speculation that they would look to move some of their expensive veterans. Despite having the league's most expensive roster and paying a hefty luxury tax bill, the Nets fell well short of expectations, putting them in a position where they have to consider hitting the reset button. Joe Johnson would be at the forefront of any discussions about blowing up the roster. The 33-year old still has something to offer contending...

A few days ago, the general belief, at least among Nets fans, was that there were two possible markets for Joe Johnson's $25 million contract: the Pistons and Hornets. Last season, there were rumors that both had an interest in the 6'8" swingman, despite his declining stats. Now both of those options are gone. Four days ago, the Pistons traded two non-guaranteed contracts -- Caron Butler and Shawne Williams -- for the Bucks Ersan Ilyasova. Then, on Monday, the Hornets traded Lance Stephenson to the Clippers for Matt Barnes and Spencer Hawes. Whether or not Billy King believed he could...
