After months of speculation that the Brooklyn Nets may trade Joe Johnson to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the rumor mill can relax now because the Nets have requested waivers on Johnson, General Manager Sean Marks announced today.

"The Nets want to thank Joe for his many contributions to the team and the organization," said Marks. "Joe has been a quality professional since joining the Nets four years ago, was a valued member of three playoff teams, and provided many thrilling moments for his teammates and Nets' fans. We wish him much success in the future."

In three and a half seasons with Brooklyn, Johnson played in 288 games for the Nets, with averages of 14.7 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game. The seven-time NBA All-Star is a veteran of 15 NBA seasons, having played with Boston, Phoenix and Atlanta, prior to his stint in Brooklyn. He holds career NBA averages of 17.0 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game.

The Nets roster now stands at 13 players.
