Re: Hawks being sold
The Hawks are staying.
One of the problems with the Atlanta Spirit was that they were stuck with owning the money-losing Thrashers, now sold and moved to Winnipeg.
Let's see what happens with roster moves. The Hawks can re-sign Jamal Crawford, or let him go and get a big (Tyson Chandler) or a younger wing. Then next year, we can either let Kirk Hinrich go and sign a younger player, or re-sign him. Plus we will have a first round pick next year.
So within 1 season, the Hawks have the possibility of adding 3 young players to Jeff Teague, keeping the team with some youth.
