Mikhail Prokhorov referred to Joe Johnson as a "core" player in a video released to Nets fans. New York Post
The Scoop: The Nets unsuccessfully shopped Johnson around the league for quite a while, but it now appears that they are ready to move forward with him. Unloading the contract of Deron Williams certainly helped things, but the Nets will still be eager to see Johnson's massive contract expire next summer. Johnson's numbers have regressed in recent years, and Nets' play-by-play announcer Ian Eagle even said that he wouldn't be surprised if he was demoted to a bench role. If it isn't obvious enough, Johnson won't be a recommended target in fantasy leagues next season.
