Pros and Cons of Deron Williams and Joe Johnson as Brooklyn Nets' Backcourt
Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

The Brooklyn Nets' backcourt combination of point guard Deron Williams and shooting guard Joe Johnson should be a dynamic duo this upcoming season, but there are also several cons that could inhibit the team's production.

Johnson was acquired on July 2 from the Atlanta Hawks for Jordan Farmar, Johan Petro, Anthony Morrow, Jordan Williams, DeShawn Stevenson and a lottery-protected first round pick in 2013 via Houston.
