Hawks pretty much locking themselves tightly into that 4th seed again. Damn.

If you're not a legit contender does it really matter?

It's also said they might trade Childress to the Bucks for Kurt Thomas. That's just a possibly though.

Damn, I wanted the Spurs to snag Pachulia.

Who else are they going to get?

Nobody wants to sign with losers.

I would prefer the Hawks to spend money on Anderson Varajeo, who can help out in the middle with size and allow Al Horford to move to power forward, but the Hawks aren't confident that he would come to Atlanta, so they are keeping Marvin and his awful, awful defense.

Other than ZaZa... The Hawks have NO backup big men on the roster. Kurt Thomas is better than Randolph Morris.

The Hawks should hopefully have some dough leftover to go after a Chris Wilcox or Shelden Williams as an additional big.

Good off-season for the Hawks

Did what they had to do and did well.

Shelden Williams? He is not even an NBA player. He will probably be out of the league when his contract is up.

The one mistake was keeping Marvin. Hopefully the Hawks can get out of that by Marvin pulling a Shawn Marion and thinking he is worth more than he actually is.

Marvin is not even worth the QO he is getting - 7.3M. No other team is going to give him that much dough.

Shelden is an unrestricted free agent. Minnesota didn't make an offer to him.

That said, Shelden is better than Randolph Morris.
