rumor: luke to the hawks?
"Though it remains unlikely that the Seattle SuperSonics will pull off a deal before the Feb. 22 trade deadline, that does not mean general manager Rick Sund is not having conversations, some of which could lead to potential trades in the future. The Atlanta Hawks have called Sund, according to a source, seeking to obtain point guard Luke Ridnour. Sund, who is in Las Vegas for the All-Star game but declined to comment on any trade discussions, told the Hawks the only way they could get Ridnour would be to include a first-round draft pick in any deal, the source said."

"The Hawks currently have the seventh-worst record in the NBA (21-31) and do not want to give up a selection in a draft that is deep and talented. It is unclear what players the Hawks offered, though they are said to be displeased with point guard Speedy Claxton, who is not the distributor that coach Mike Woodson would like." Tacoma News Tribune
