I'm happy for Jamal Crawford. Maybe hell make his playoff debut in 2010.

They COULD start Jamal at SG and Joe at SF with Marvin being the 6th man (like he was at UNC). Dont know if Joe can guard SFs though.

Law could be a Nick Van Exel type if used properly. He's very quick and athletic.

Crawford will be fine with the Hawks b/c he will get the green light to fire it up when he is in the game. That's what Flip got when he was in games, b/c there is no other scorer off the bench - Zaza is more defense and rebounding.

Crawford is certainly better than Speedy and Law, and in case JJ gets hurt, he can step in as a starter. Also, in case Flip or Marvin get a big contract someplace else and leave, Crawford can take either of their minutes.

Good move by Rick Sund.

Ehhh.

They could have easily packaged in Crawford elsewhere to make a bigger move rather than taking on an expirer & a Bust.

Joe can, he plays SG only because Williams' natural position is SF and it gets him on the court.

This is another possible Eddy Curry destination down the drain. Thought Hawks might want him for Speedy's expirer.

Sigh......I need Hawkfan to come up with more scenarios for me..........

This may be the first winning team of Crawford's career.

Golden State is looking to clean out some of the toxic-ness of the locker room.

Speedy was never a problem on the bench. Acie got frustrated his first year, but he didn't have any incidences this year.

I wouldn't be surprised to see those two moved again, either separately or together, so Golden State can get some bigs.
