Giannis will be a Hawk

Say we send Capela, 2020 1rst and Huerter to Philly for Embiid and Elton Brand so as to actually have a quality big man coach for Embiid, Dedmon and Bruno. Some serious paperwork involved would imagine but Elton might do it because he would be the highest paid assistant coach in the league by far and maybe doing something he would rather do. No pay cut and no worrying about buying and selling for teammate chemistry class. Oh, and Cam plays 35 minutes or more at SG moving forward.

I just want you all to know that when we get Giannis, I’m gonna find this thread and all of you eat crow! 😡    ps I hope 🤞🏿 you and your families are all staying safe during this worldwide p

Giannis isnt like KD, or Bron for that matter. This is a kid who once walked to a game because he sent all of his money home to his family and couldnt afford a cab. This is a kid who purpose

Speak it into existence, I ain't mad at you.

Ok but your the one telling Elton he’s been demoted from GM to assistant coach 😂

Embiid’s career is going to be very shortened due to his knees 

I think so too....which is why to me it’s not out of question to get him.

our 2020 first rd pick + capela + a young core member say Huerter or Hunter MAY get you Embiid and most would say that’s great for the hawks but forgetting the fact that he’s severely injury prone. 
 

I love Embiid and his style of play when he’s focused but I think he may be the next big on the Andrew Bynum path

Better chance at Giannis than thin(gram). :yes:

Don't know about that but I remain rooting for you to be right!  Being an UFA at least leaves the decision entirely up to Giannis.

I’ll say it now. Hawks are getting Giannis. It might take a combination of players (Collins, Hunter, Huerter, Capela, picks) but I think  he will be ours in a year or so.

A couple things have to happen. The Bucks have to not win the finals, and Trae has to continue to recruit harder than anyone.

My reason for being so confident:

Trae and Giannis are 2/8 players represented by Jeff Austin (Octagon).

Its gonna be easier to recruit Giannis. I really feel like we have an inside track.

 

But...please don’t sign an aging ailing Curry 🍛 as a ring chasing three point specialist..(he’s also a client of Jeff..and his brother Seth).

Thoughts?

 

Spudstrodamus!

 

  • It isn’t out of the question the Hawkswould make a run at Giannis Antetokounmpo if the reigning Most Valuable Player becomes a free agent next summer, Kirschner adds in the same piece. If the Hawks’ young core shows major progress next season, they may be able to entice the superstar in a similar manner to what the Clippers did to lure Kawhi Leonard and trade for Paul George.

I don't doubt that IF Giannis becomes a FA next offseason that Hawks will try and make a play for him. (I don't agree with the Kawhi/PG reference- they are both from LA and wanted to be back there).

This upcoming season will be big in putting the Hawks in a winning situation to have at least a sit down with Giannis.

I keep telling ya'll.  If you're wishing for Trae to play with Giannis, be careful what you wish for.

Why it would be perfect 👌 No?

I don't think you're smellin' what I'm cookin', spud so I'll just come out and say it plain .. right now, I'd say it's more likely that pairing would happen in some city in Wisconsin before it happens in some city in Georgia.

But Trae already told us...

 

THIS IS MY CITY 🌃 (ATLANTA) 

I don’t think he can legally retract that statement he yelled on the court. Then again I’m not a lawyer like @AHF I dunno the rules only the letter of the squawk law! 😃

BTW, with me, just come out and say it. Let’s keep the lovey dovey guessing games between you and Gonzo 😃

I’m sure Giannis remembers his team beating the Hawks by 26 without him.  He’d need his head examined leaving Bud U and I’m assuming the highest possible max from Milwaukee.

The Hawks have signed Tracy McGrady and Vince Carter in FAcy, so I'm sure it is definitely possible to some day bring GA to GA.

Maybe not in a year, but some day. Before he retires.

Guys - I hid the bet discussion posts.  Bad feelings on both sides.  Nothing really on point with the subject of the thread.  Spud set a stake the size of a tent pole on this one.  I’ll be happy to line it up for a Squawk celebration of his predictive powers when this comes to pass.  Until then, let’s keep talking Hawks bball!

Lol,  thanks I’m not the type that needs my predictive powers celebrated  (although it rarely happens so maybe a celebration is not the worst idea lol) I just like good clean Hawks talk. ✌️
