Re: 2011-12 Jazz could play big-man musical chairs
The Hawks plan to sign a center and it almost certainly will be a guy on a 10-day contract rather than a permanent addition. Theyíve discussed Kyrylo Fesenko, Erick Dampier and Dan Gadzuric but, as far as I know, they havenít inquired with those guys yet to gauge their interest in a short-term gig in Atlanta. Iíve always thought Fesenko, the massive 7-foot Ukranian, is probably the best item in the Big Man Bargain Bin (excluding Joel Przybilla, who has eyes for the Heat or Bulls). But you figured something was up when the Warriors reportedly had an agreement with Fesenko in December but balked at signing him and then passed on him again after Kwame Brown went down last month. Word is the knee injury Fesenko suffered playing for the Ukraine last summer remains a concern; his conditioning and work ethic were suspect before he got hurt and so you have to wonder how much he can give.
