#JoeJBK #BrooklynStacked The Brooklyn Nets acquired Joe Johnson from the Atlanta Hawks, last night, in a blockbuster trade! The six-time All-Star #JoeJ was traded to #Brooklyn in exchange for a package of expiring contracts, a signed-and-traded DeShawn Stevenson and  Houston’s lottery protected first round pick in 2013. The trade won’t be #official until July 11, the free-agency trade deadline.

#HowardBKTrade The #Nets are setting up a blockbuster trade to bring #Howard to #Brooklyn! The #Nets are proposing to acquire #Howard in exchange for Brook Lopez, Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and the Nets’ first-round picks in 2013, 2015 and 2017. Lopez and Humphries are both free-agents and would go to the #Magic on a sign-and-trade deal. #Howard even told the #Magic GM late last week that he will go to #Brooklyn!

“Marcus lives in New York in the offseason, and if it works out there, it would be terrific,” the source said.espn
