The Atlanta Hawks have the framework in place for a deal that will send Joe Johnson to the Brooklyn Nets for five expiring contracts and a first-round pick.

Atlanta will reportedly receive Jordan Farmar, Johan Petro, Jordan Williams, DeShawn Stevenson and Anthony Morrow. Also included in the deal is a protected first-round pick from the Houston Rockets.

There are conflicting reports that suggest that the deal may or may not hinge on free agent Deron Williams and his decision to either leave or re-sign with the Nets.

More to come......
