Claxton and Lue are similar players - small and quick. Jones fills the need for a bigger guard, and a better shooter. Plus Jones can play some minutes at shooting guard as well, which adds some depth to the Hawks roster.
Snow is the halfcourt point guard for Cleveland, but they don't have a guy who can come in off the bench and push the tempo. Lue can do that for Cleveland.
The only problem is the judge's ruling on no contracts being traded to the Hawks until the ownership issue is resolved.
Both have similar salaries.
