Joe Johnson is a good player. He's a star, in fact, but is he worth $20 million a year? No. Danny Ferry, the new Atlanta Hawks GM felt the same way. Johnson was recently dealt to the Nets for five role players in order to dump that enormous contract the Hawks gave him in 2010. A contract that ultimately showed their last GM, Rick Sund, the door. This move might've made the Brooklyn Nets the best basketball team in New York, though.
