The proposed deal between the Nets and Hawks for Joe Johnson could get done Sunday but if it doesn't, the Nets will make an offer for newly unrestricted free agent O.J. Mayo, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski.

"Nets, Hawks could reach a decision on possible Joe Johnson deal today, sources tell Y! If trade doesn't happen, Nets will push for OJ Mayo," tweeted Woj. Saturday night, he wrote that the Nets were prepared to make a "significant offer" for Mayo, who did not receive a qualifying offer last week from the Grizzlies. The Nets are one of four teams reportedly interested in Mayo, according to Ken Berger. In addition to Nets, the Celtics, Pacers and Suns are in the mix for Mayo.

According to several reports, the Nets would receive Johnson in return for four expiring contracts: Anthony Morrow, Jordan Farmar, Johan Petro and Jordan Williams plus a first round pick in 2013, when the Nets have two picks, their own and the Rockets' lottery protected pick.
