The Atlanta Hawks have traded All-Star guard Joe Johnson to the Brooklyn Nets. According to ESPN, the deal calls for the Nets to send the expiring contracts of Jordan Farmar, Johan Petro, Anthony Morrow and Jordan Williams along with DeShawn Stevenson (via sign-and-trade) and a future first-round pick (lottery-protected in 2013 via Houston) to Atlanta in exchange for Johnson.

Early reports said that the deal was contingent on whether Deron Williams resigned with The Nets, but the deal may go through regardless of whether Williams stays with The Nets or not.
