Report: Joe Johnson buyout would 'pique Heat's interest'

Joe Johnson may be sticking around in Brooklyn. He may not. What we know is he says he won't request a trade. When asked about a buyout, though, he left things a little more murky. So, let's say we live in a world where Johnson does get bought out by the Nets. Let's say he and the team come to some agreement and the 34-year-old wing, who has played much better of late, hits the...

There's no need to dance around the obvious - the Brooklyn Nets are a disaster and there's no clear path for them back to respectability anytime soon. They fired their head coach and their GM in the last few weeks, but they might as well be re-arranging deck chairs for all the good that it's going to do.

How to Get the Brooklyn Nets Draft Picks

As I explored earlier this season, the Brooklyn Nets would be in much better shape these days if the franchise had simply elected to hold on to their draft picks instead of constantly dealing them away for aging stars.
