The Hawks are interested in bringing back Joe Johnson. And a reunion is a real possibility. The Hawks are one of several teams with serious interest in signing the seven-time All-Star and Johnson has serious interest in the returning to Atlanta, according to several people familiar with the situation. The Nets bought out Johnson’s contract and waived the guard/forward on Thursday. Another team can claim Johnson and assume his salary. More likely, he will become a free agent when he clears waivers at 5 p.m. on Saturday.

When Thon Maker worked out for the Milwaukee Bucks before the NBA draft in June, I asked him to compare his game to another player. Maker, an affable young man, didn’t hesitate in responding and fired back, smiling, “I’m a modern-day version of Kevin Garnett.’’ The Bucks, who shocked the basketball world by making the 7-foot-1 Maker the No. 10 overall selection in the draft, would be ecstatic if he came remotely close to having the same type of pro career as Garnett, who is a lock for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
