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.
