  1. I like him as a sf or small ball pf. I feel like he could be coached into a Boris Diaw type of high energy stat stuffer off the bench that isn't great at any one thing, with better scoring ability... not the Atlanta Hawks Boris Diaw.
  2. My prediction... NO and Phoenix are the other 2 teams and NO takes on Gordon because they need shooters. Phoenix takes on Anderson because that have cap space, could use a PF, and have young talent or picks to send to NY. With Gordon and Anderson gone Houston can take on Carmelo and his trade kicker.
  3. I liked him coming out of UCLA, but I thought he was raw and needed someone to reign him in and give him structure. Bud and his staff might be the people to do that.
  4. Minimum 5 years... after the 2019/2020 season we will only have Schröder, Bembry, Prince, and Collins under contract. I bet we don't sign any free agents that will be on the roster after that season. We have 6 1st round draft picks over the next 3 years that we will either use or package to move up plus 2nd round picks. The Hawks will hope that they have at least 3 starters and some bench players from those picks and our current young guys, then sign a couple good free agents to round the team out. It will take a season to play together and figure out if we need another piece or 2. 5 year
  5. I was thinking about this earlier today when I was trying to figure out what the Hawks are going to do with their cap space. I don't think Houston has enough picks and young talent to make this happen. The Knicks will want a couple picks or a pick and young player for Carmelo, and we'll want a pick or young player for taking on salary. We already have Houston's 2018 1st, so their 2020 pick is the next up for grabs. We might not mind getting the 2020 pick since we are on the 8 year plan, but that leaves nothing for the Knicks. Houston gave up too much in the Chris Paul trade.
  6. There have been a few people that think we could help facilitate a Carmelo trade. Maybe we send Hardaway and picks to NY, they send Carmelo to Cleveland, and we're clearing room for Love. Not saying I think this should or will happen. I'm not even sure you can SnT a restricted Free Agent. Just trying to figure out what the Hawks are up to.
  7. If I'm Millsap's agent, I'm telling him to wait on Hayward to decide where he's going. If Hayward goes back to Utah then it could open up Boston and Miami to go after Millsap.
  8. I don't like that this has leaked while he's still on waivers. Someone below us in the standings will pick him up to block us from getting him.
  9. I think it gets us a trade exception for his tiny contract that might cover a vet salary* *I don't claim to be a cap expert, but I like to think I know what I'm saying is legit.
  10. I think this was just a move to open up a roster spot to sign Neal. Cenk isn't signed to a contract, so he isn't on the roster.
  11. Hahahaha, I saw this and laughed my ass off. Everyone will realize how overrated he is. He's an average player with slightly above average leadership skills. He's not taking the Celtics to the finals.
  12. It's going to take until the 1st of the year for our new starting lineup and rotation to hit their stride. Luckily we have an easy early winnable schedule while they figure things out. Schröder wasn't good tonight (2 assists, 4 to's), so I put it on him that Howard didn't get enough touches. It will work itself out in time. I also doubt that Howard imagines averaging 20/15 for the season. If he gets 15/12 he's an all star and performing better than Horford did for us. Plus 7 offensive rebounds! He could get himself enough touches.
  13. 52-30 3 seed EC Finals 950 mins #1 defense
  14. I think Edy will spend a lot of time with us. He'll learn more going up against Dwight in practice and watching him play from the bench than what he will learn playing against scrubs in the D-league.
  15. Every Atlanta team feels the same and has for a while. There's no fire, no passion, very little emotion. We'll see if Dennis has the head on his shoulders to be a really good point guard, but we know he will bring the fire. I'm looking forward to Howard taking ownership of the paint. Someone who will hopefully be swatting shots into the stands. The Hawks should have a ceremony where Mutombo passes on the finger wag to Howard.
