Report: Joe Johnson To 'Explore Every Option' Despite Max Offer From Hawks

While the Atlanta Hawks have already made it clear they will offer Joe Johnson a maximum contract worth six years and $119 million, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports tweets that Johnson isn't ready to commit to his team just yet.

Everyone expects Johnson to take Hawks deal, but he wants to explore every option before committing to them. That offer isn't leaving table.less than a minute ago via web

 

One theory has Johnson and his agent remaining patient so that they can explore the sign-and-trade market in an attempt to get the best of both worlds: the $119 million contract and a new preferred destination. Given that the full max offer to Johnson was considered something of a surprise, it will be very interesting to see how much interest he receives from other teams at that price.
