Report: Hawks deal Williams to Utah for Harris

July 3, 2012, 1:09 AM

According to reports, the Atlanta Hawks have traded forward Marvin Williams to the Utah Jazz in exchange for point guard Devin Harris.

After reportedly trading Joe Johnson to the New Jersey Nets earlier, the Hawks are about to shed another of their large contracts in order to create flexibility.

The two combined trades sees the Atlanta Hawks export $105 million in long-term contracts while only receiving $23.5 million in return.

Utah CEO Greg Miller acknowledged the deal for former first-round pick Marvin Williams while picking up guard Mo Williams at Salt Lake City International Airport in preparation for Tuesday’s introductory press conference.

Miller said it was difficult to part with Harris but was excited by what Mo Williams brings to the team.

Mo Williams said it felt good to be back where he started his career in 2003.
