Default Hawks sign Maurice Evans

This is Josh Childress' replacement i guess. Yay?

He's a better shooter and defender then Josh, but all my true Hawk fans know that we will lose all the little things Childress did that made him a huge part of the team.

We Gain- Perimeter Shooting(something we were desperate for), Defense.
We Lose- Offensive and devensive rebounding, all the small things that go unnoticed on the stat sheet.

With the playing time he'll be recieving this year his stats will probably go up.
I believe his stats last year were around this..
9ppg 3rpg 1apg in limited playing time.

Childress averaged...
12ppg 5rpg 2apg.

Hopefully this will work out.

08-09 Projection for Maurice Evans
10ppg 3rpg 2apg. (hopefully better)

He's a good pick up for the Hawks. Now we just got to get a deal done for Josh Smith and get a big man or 2 and we ready to show the league the Hawks are no joke.

averaged 9.3 points and 3.1 rebounds in 68 games last season after being traded to Orlando from the Los Angeles Lakers.

Evans, 29, has a reputation as a tenacious perimeter defender and opportunistic offensive threat. He's a career 37 percent shooter from beyond the 3-point line, and averaged a career-high 9.3 points last season.

It's an OK pick up. J.R. Smith would have been better, and for the same price. But i'm gunna support Mo Evans.

As for our big man problem, i think the Hawks will call up Othello Hunter from summer league. He had an outstanding summer league. I think around 14pts and 6 boards a game. Then maybe Kwame Brown. I haven't heard much about Kwame and Morris lately though.

As for J-Smoove, I think we'll get him back as soon as he realizes he's not worth what he wants. No other team has cap room for him, but the Grizzlies and why would he go there?

Evans signed a 3yr 7 million $ contract. JR Smith will get at least 6 million a year, so we could'nt have got him at the same price.

What would you have done differently?

I for one love the addition of Maurice Evans and think he will fit great within the Hawks organization.
