Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

As part of the Joe Johnson trade, the Nets quietly agreed to permit the Hawks to swap first picks with Brooklyn in both 2014 and 2015, according to a league source. The Nets can still trade the picks, the source told NetsDaily.

The swap was listed on the RealGM draft asset page and confirmed by the source. The picks were part of the original deal but not announced since the picks were not traded, but swapped. There was no mention of the swap in the original press releases from the Nets and Hawks.

The final deal, as now fully disclosed, was Johnson for Jordan Farmar (bought out); Jordan Williams (bought out), DeShawn Stevenson (sign-and-trade), Anthony Morrow, Johan Petro, the Rockets picks (lottery protected) in 2013, the swap of first rounders in 2014 and 2015, and the Nets second rounder in 2017.

If the Nets finish lower than the Hawks in either year, they will have to swap picks.
