Report: Detroit Pistons Inquire About Joe Johnson

ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk is reporting that the Detroit Pistons have reached out to the Brooklyn Nets to inquire about Nets guard Joe Johnson. The Pistons are reportedly offering the Nets a package of Brandon Jennings and expiring contracts.


It’s questionable if the Nets have interest in Brandon Jennings considering he is out for the season with a ruptured achilles and adding Jennings would crowd the point guard spot. The expiring contracts the Nets would take in could include Joel Anthony and Jonas Jerebko.

The Nets have been active in trade discussions since December, even coming close to trading Brook Lopez, but it remains uncertain if they will make a trade at the deadline. If a deal goes down be sure to check out Brooklyn’s Finest for an analysis.
