Report: Joe Johnson has 'no interest' in buyout with Nets

BY foxsports • January 11, 2016

The Nets are in a miserable position, sitting at 10-27 without a full-time coach or general manager. Amidst the chaos have been rumors about their highest-paid player, Joe Johnson, who becomes a free agent this year and may or may not become a buyout candidate if the organization were feeling charitable. 

ESPN's Marc Stein says that likely won't be the case, though:

The question now, after Brooklyn ousted general manager Billy King on Sunday, is, who would negotiate a buyout with Johnson anyway? 

Johnson is having his worst year of the four he's been in Brooklyn, averaging 11.2 points per game and shooting a career-worst 37 percent from the field to complement his 33 percent three-point percentage.
