Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012
No chance. Assuming the Knicks bring in anyone of worth with their space.
Johnson is very overrated, I looked at the Hawks forums for their reactions, they thought they'd have to give up something just for someone to take that contract off their hands.
It just completely kills their chance to build a contender, sound like a short term move to appease Williams more than anything. They'd have been better off getting rid of both, bombing for a year and getting a top pick + Howard down the line.
Joe Johnson is still a good player, arguably top 5 SG, he just has a horrible contract.
I know his contract will cripple the Nets but the Nets with Deron, Joe, Brook, Wallace, Humphries, Kidd, Marswag and maybe Gerald Green or DeShawn Stevenson has the potential to be better than the Knicks.
