Hawks Prepared To Offer Johnson A Maximum Contract

Hawks beat writer Michael Cunningham reports, via Twitter, that Atlanta is prepared to offer Joe Johnson a “max 6 yr Bird rights deal at start of free agency.” Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports added to the conversation by asserting the report is “is devastating news to potential Joe Johnson suitors” because Johnson “wants to stay in Atlanta.”

The news may devastate Hawks fans as well. Currently, 73% of respondents to a Peachtree Hoops poll prefer Johnson sign elsewhere.
