  1. Plus Prince, Bembry, Cordinier from last year's draft as well as our three draftees from yesterday.
  2. Team won't make announcement until pen meets paper.

  5. Rights to Thabo and Humphries renounced.
  6. I think Dallas matches any offer.
  7. Good Luck Do-it-All Paul.
  8. I don't like trading the 31st pick, however, the Dwight experiment wasn't working. Recognizethe error and move on. I don't like Plumlee's contract as a stand alone but from an overall team perspective it's loosens up the cap flexibility, particularly now that late last night the salary cap projections for 2017-18 came out at $99 million, another decrease over initial projections. It'll be a tight squeeze for more teams now.
  9. 1 down *(Dwight) 1 to go (Baze)
  10. We traded Teague for #12. Who are we trading for #12? Baze won't get us anything close to #12. Detroit can't take on Baze's salary, they have to resign KC and will be in luxury tax ****. Hawks will more than likely have to include a pick with Baze to move him as he's now considered a bad contract based on his play this year.
  11. More like DeAndre Jordan or even Tyson Chandler. Defense and rebounding, put backs, PnR.
  12. Bud flew to Germany mainly to scout EuroLeague and watch our current Draft and Stash players. He also ran into Pero, lol. It's not only about Bud 'using Dwight right' it's also about Dwight changing his mindset about how we play. We aren't dumping the ball in and 'watch him go to work in the post'. He barely sets a decent screen with that big body, barely steps out on PnR defense. Needs to do more rolling harder to basket. I do agree that too many times, players miss him in the post when he's established quick deep position where he can just get the ball and go. Too many 'post' moves offers nothing but turnovers and missed shots. He's not Orlando Dwight where his quickness and athleticism overpowered guys.
  13. Because teams defend the 1-5 PnR differently with Dennis and Dwight. Dennis spoke about it in a interview. He's also had too many TOs forcing it to Dwight. A Baze or Millsap lob is more unexpected so teams defend it differently.
  14. From all reports PG13 is interested in going to LAL as a free agent. I would be wary of trading too many assests for him for 1 year just to watch him walk off to LAL.
  15. The Teague who choked against the Cavs last game with that big comeback. He missed all his shots in the 4th - I'll pass. Dennis isn't the problem, what's NOT behind him is, an adequate backup PG. Dennis and Prince are the only 2 players from the starting line uo playing playoff basketball.
  16. 3 of our starters Dwight, Millsap and Thjr haven't been winning or even matching their counterparts. We can't throw it into the post to Dwight because for the most part Gortat is outplaying him on both ends. Dwight isn't doing much to help Dennis in PnR defense. Won't set one decent screen on offense. We move the ball better without Dwight but then we can't rebound. Thjr has been struggling big time. Players are supposed to up their games in the playoffs - they aren't.
  17. Oh....Hawks in 6 over the Wiz. Take care of the ball, and we must have the ball and PLAYER movement we have seen over the last 4 games.
  18. Then bench started the season on fire then went real terribad. Moose and Delaney in particular. We have since sured up the bench by getting rid of Scott and Splitter for 2 guys in Calderon and Illyasova who are productive. The bench seems to have settled in now. Moose was so bad for a stretch - he couldn't seem to do anything right. With THJr and Prince in the starting lineup it thankfully moves Baze to the spot bet suited for him. Prince is still raw but he can do more on offense than Thabo. Last night the starters really made the effort to pass the ball more.
  19. We won't have money to sign both Griffin and Reddick and still keep Bazemore . Griffin will more than likely command a max deal of $30 million. Hawks have approximatley $66 million in guaranteed contracts. Add Griffin's $30 mill that leaves $6 million in capspace. Reddick will probably get in the $18-$20 mil range. Even if you trade Baze and want to keep Ersan ($12.6 caphold) - still not enough money for BOTH Griffin and Reddick.
  20. This. Show hard and get back. Re-route the player allowing his teammate to get over/under through screen.
  21. It's just sad, really.
  22. Pathetic is the correct word.
