Joe Johnson buyout?

Where will Joe Johnson be playing in 2016-17? Stein: Not. Brooklyn. That’s about as definitive as we can get this far away from free agency. But the more interesting question might be: Will Johnson finish this season in Brooklyn? There are some folks around the league who wonder if the Nets would consent to buying out Johnson after the Feb. 18 trade deadline if they can’t move him. The Nets would naturally dismiss any such suggestions, given that they have no other choice but to try to win as many games as they can before sending their unprotected 2016 top pick to Boston. But they also frequently insisted that they wouldn’t buy out Deron Williams before ultimately doing so.

Ethan Sherwood Strauss: Asked Steph Curry if he expects to have a voice in major free agency decisions: “I expect they’ll ask me about what a potential move, whatever it is, how it’ll impact the team, the chemistry, and this and that. But at the end of the day that’s not my job. If it was we probably wouldn’t have the team we have right now. I’ll stick to shooting, playing with the teammates that we have, and hopefully whatever that means down the stretch, Bob and front office continue to do the job they’ve been doing”
