Hawks-Jazz Trade: Atlanta Gets Devin Harris For Marvin Williams

The Hawks have traded Marvin Williams to the Utah Jazz for guard Devin Harris, showing even more drastic cosmetic changes to this Atlanta squad.

This is deal is similar to the one that sent Joe Johnson to the Brooklyn Nets in that it's acquiring an expiring contract to get rid of a lengthy and perhaps overpaid one. Harris' contract expires after the 2012-13 season. It puts the Hawks in position to go after Dwight Howard next summer, or possibly even pull of a trade this season to team him up with Harris.

The Nets appear to be out of the running for Howard because of the earlier Johnson deal, so this can only get more interesting.
