(AP) — The Hawks have agreed to deal All-Star guard Joe Johnson to the Brooklyn Nets for five players and a draft pick, and Atlanta will send forward Marvin Williams to the Utah Jazz for guard Devin Harris.

A person familiar with the Hawks-Nets deal told The Associated Press on Monday night that Atlanta will receive guards Anthony Morrow, Jordan Farmar and DeShawn Stevenson and forwards Jordan Williams and Johan Petro, along with a draft pick Brooklyn received from Houston in a prior deal. The selection only belongs to the Nets if it is not a lottery pick.

The person confirmed the trade on condition of anonymity because it cannot become official until Stevenson signs as a free agent with Brooklyn. Free agents cannot be signed until July 11.

Johnson has four years and $90 million left on his contract and new general manager Danny Ferry decided it was time to shed payroll and rebuild.

The 31-year-old Johnson averaged 18.8 points per game last season, his 11th in the NBA and seventh with Atlanta.

The Nets are hoping to team Johnson with free agent point guard Deron Williams, whom they are working to re-sign, in the franchise’s first season in New York City after decades in New Jersey.
