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.

Joffrey Lauvergne: Glad to be a new part of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Can’t wait to start this new challenge.
Dellavedova told the crowd at Fed Square that playing under legendary point guard Jason Kidd was a key in signing with the Bucks. “To be able to play for a coach who is one of the best point guards of all time, I’m going to be able to learn a lot off him and try to really expand my game and be in more of a leadership role than I was in Cleveland,” he said.
“My agent was talking to a fair few teams, the Bucks were interested, Sacramento, the Cavs, but Milwaukee just seemed like a really good fit for me (as a) young up and coming team that’s got a lot of potential.”
