Hawks swap first-round picks with Nets


Posted Jun 25 2010 12:17AM

ATLANTA (AP) -- The Atlanta Hawks and New Jersey Nets have exchanged first-round picks in a draft-day deal that gives Atlanta more depth behind free-agent guard Joe Johnson.

The Hawks have traded Texas forward Damion James, taken with Atlanta's No. 24 pick, to New Jersey for one of the Nets' two first-round picks, Xavier guard Jordan Crawford, the No. 27 pick.

In the trade, the Hawks also obtained rights to 7-foot-1 center Tibur Pleiss of Germany, drafted by the Nets with the No. 31 pick. The Hawks traded Pleiss to Oklahoma City for financial considerations.

The Nets took Georgia Tech's Derrick Favors with their first pick at No. 3.

The 6-foot-7 James averaged 18 points and 10.3 rebounds as a senior.
