Report: Joe Johnson will sign with Cavaliers if Nets buy him out


Joe Johnson may not be long for the Brooklyn Nets, and he may already have his next destination if they do buy him out.

According to Chris Haynes of, Johnson will head to Cleveland if he is bought out by Brooklyn.

There is no indication that the Nets are on the verge of buying out Johnson. According to Haynes, the team is aware of the ballpark figure that would be required to do so, and are pondering whether they want to keep Johnson until his contract expires at the end of the season or knowingly help Cleveland and allow him to walk.

The Cavs are still looking for upgrades even after the trade deadline, much as they did the season before when the additions of J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert were vital to their run to the NBA Finals. They already got Channing Frye and they’re still looking for ways to add new talent. The Cavaliers were reportedly interested in Johnson during the summer as well, but now they could get him for much less if the Nets cooperate.
