Joe Johnson and Al Horford on the Proposed Trade

Sekou Smith (natch) reports from New Orleans.

Joe Johnson:
"This is another huge step for us. You're talking about a guy who can make shots and can run a team. He embodies all the things we've wanted in a veteran point guard and he's also a guy that's known for taking and making big shots. And you can never have too many guys like that in the NBA. As tough as it is to see guys like Lue, A.J., 'Ren and Shelden leave, we all realize that this is a business and decisions are made and you make the best of things and move on. But there's no doubt we're getting a guy that can help make us better."
Al Horford:
"Anytime you add a playoff tested player you know it has to be a good thing. his is obviously the first time I've ever experienced something like this, so I don't know how it will be. But everybody knows who Mike Bibby is and what he's done. And I can't imagine it being anything but a positive for us."
Ballhype: hype it up!
