Default Name the Hawks team needs

Name your team's TEAM NEEDS, in order of importance.

What positions need to be filled the most?
What specific skills should the players at that position have to best compliment the players already there?

Post the top few most important needs the team has to fill this summer, via the draft/free agency/trades/etc.

I dont understand where The Hawks are heading. They seem to compile the same type of players. They have a pretty good core of young players but they are all swingmen... Long and athletic, which is awesome but I think they need a legit point guard and a big. They could find a point guard with there draft picks this year easily but I think they should trade a swingmen or two for a young big

Knight will never address 1 and 2, first of all he does not think PG and C are very important positions to fill, he wants interchangable guys. I don't know why on earth he does not have enough of 3 and 4 since all he has on his roster are 3's and 2's. We should have about 3 Reserve shooters and at least 2 Reserve perimeter defenders. However, Salim and Tyrone can both knock down three's.

As most of us know, the Hawks need to address two key positions

1. Center, 7-footer who can defend, rebound, intimidate peolpe and have some low-post skills...

2.PG, team-oriented, pass-first PG, who can also defend two guards...

"D" and deep bench are the keys, because Hawks already have enough talent and offensive weapons. I believe that few veterans at the right positions could get Hawks quickly back on the winning tracks and into the playoff contention...

The Hawks need to move to Oklahoma CIty.
Just joking. The Hawks need to let the young guys develop and allow Allen Iverson's kids to grow up in Philly where they have lots of friends

1. Run'n'Gun point guard who can rack up assists and steals. Three point range would be nice, too.
2. Banger down low to go with Horford. Athleticism would be appreciated, too.
3. Depth down low.

I wouldn't mind sending you guys Calderon for Marvin or Childress. Possibly both if we could add in maybe a shooter in Kapono. Raps need a swingman that can rebound and get to the charity strip. Having Childress or Marvin would do wonders for this team.

Thank you!

He is what the Hawks need. Hell, I don't care if we can get a scoring PG like Keyon Dooling, I like how he attacks the rim and with authority. Just get us a point guard who can pass and is not scared to go to the rim.

Second, get rid of the managment they have. 8 owners, come on.
