Default Hawks sign Speedy Claxton

Why I don't know. It's not as if he's better than Lue. His range is limited to a layup... He's like a poor mans Bobby Jackson.

4 years 25 million. Too much money.

What the hell are the Cavs going to do now? I can't take another season with ESnow running the point.

great move for us. He can play D and push the ball with the young guns, without having to dominate the ball in the halfcourt. Plus we are no longer obliged to find a PG in a Harrington SNT. We can go for the best deal

What are you talking about?..Why does everyone complain about contracts being too much nowadays?...4 years $25million and you still find a way to complain. Claxton is better than Lue and has a good jumper but the 3pt. stroke is inconsistent. That's good money for him, it's like nobody is satisfied with any contract their team gives out nowadays.

man thats a good addition, hawks will be pretty sweet like in a couple years, i hope they just get bigger at center, maybe lure in pryzbilla, or do some sort of sign and trade for ben wallace ( yeeee rite, but good idea ), although speedy isnt quite chris paul, i think marvin williams will be a great fit this year or next, plus dont forget, when spurs won that championship in 03, claxton was in most of the time for tony parker

starting 5: pachulia, sheld williams, josh smith, joe johnson, speedy claxton

bench: childress, marv williams, tyrone lue, salim stoudamire

and then theyll get a nice piece for al harrington who im very sure will go in a sign-and-trade, so expect another big center to be added, so overall, its a nice squad, and most likely they might move tyrone lue with salim there

yup, but really the biggest difference will be with the joshes and marvin finally being able to get on the fast break. I love this signing.

Now we have the freedom of looking for the best SNT for Al too, we don't have to find a team with a point.

$6,250,000 per?

It's decent, I'd say it's a little too much but you'll never get away with what you think they're worth.

I think 3.5-4 million is the most you should be paying for abackup player.
