Hawks, Jazz Swap Marvin Williams, Devin Harris

JULY 11, 5:46pm: The deal is now official, tweets Brian T. Smith of The Salt Lake Tribune.

JULY 2, 6:10pm: The Hawks and Jazz have agreed to deal Marvin Williams for Devin Harris, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.com. It's the second deal of the day for new Hawks GM Danny Ferry, who agreed to ship Joe Johnson to the Nets earlier.

The move could be with an eye toward 2013/14 for the Hawks, since Williams has a $7.5MM early termination option for that season while Harris' deal ends after 2012/13. The Jazz appear to be clearing the way for Mo Williams, whom they just acquired from the Clippers last week, to be the starting point guard.

Harris is on the books for $8.5MM next season, while Williams is set to make $8,287,500 next season, so the salaries are close enough to make this a straight-up swap. Harris had been on the trading block since joining the Jazz at midseason in 2010/11, and the Jazz had offered him to the Hawks several times, tweets Brian T. Smith of The Salt Lake Tribune.

Teague can backup or they could trade him and sign another PG to backup. Hinrich is a UFA. Plus, I think they can get rid of Farmar since he terminated his player option.

Good move. Getting rid of two bad contracts today, and getting some key role players a new starting PG.

Now Teague can backup or they could trade him and sign another PG to backup since Hinrich is a UFA.

Hawks are clearing space quick. No messing around with the new front office.

I think we need to go out and get a big dude to play in the paint with Al Horford.
