Lance Stephenson could be coming home to Brooklyn. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Charlotte Hornets and Brooklyn Nets have been discussing a trade that would center around the swapping of Stephenson and Joe Johnson.
The Charlotte Hornets and Brooklyn Nets have restarted trade discussions, this time focused on guard Joe Johnson, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
The Hornets and Nets are discussing a larger package that would likely include guards Lance Stephenson and Gerald Henderson and forward Marvin Williams, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
The deal makes sense for both teams. The Nets would be getting younger and shaking up a roster that has proven itself to be a failure. The Hornets would get a talented veteran who could give them more outside shooting and help them make a playoff run. Charlotte is currently 19-26 and in eighth place in the Eastern Conference. The Nets, at 18-26, are a half-game behind them.
