Atlanta Hawks

  1. Anthony Tolliver likes Atlanta, but do they like him?

    Aug 27, 2012, 1:31 PM EDT

    Anthony Tolliver

    You can tell right now Anthony Tolliver and his agent are trying hard to make it look like there is a ton of interest in the athletic but underwhelming four. It went so far as for reports a Greek team being interested in Tolliver to find its way into this blog. But Tolliver is interested…

  2. James Anderson is apparently going to be a Hawk

    Aug 25, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    James Anderson, Vince Carter, Garret Siler

    There were high hopes for James Anderson with the Spurs when he was drafted, but he just never could fit. Not everyone can mesh with the Spurs’ approach, and it’s hard to see whether it’s a talent or fit issue, though there are certainly considerable gaps in his game. And as a free agent, it…

  3. The Inbounds: Houston, We Have A Solution

    Aug 24, 2012, 5:54 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets Introduce Jeremy Lin

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Maybe no team will have the kind of predicted-win variance from fans and experts this season than the Houston Rockets.…

  4. NBA Summer Power Rankings: Free agency moves Lakers up

    Aug 23, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Summer NBA power rankings are about as meaningful and accurate as preseason college football rankings. At least the NBA isn’t silly enough to have something like this matter in determining a champion. That would be stupid. The top and the bottom of the poll are what you’d expect, but the Lakers and Celtics moved up…

  5. Lou Williams says he’s ready to work off-the-ball in Atlanta

    Aug 22, 2012, 2:28 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Three

    Atlanta is going to be an interesting team to watch come together. Joe Johnson has been shipped off to Brooklyn with his massive contract and isolation jump shots. Things are going to be different on offense in the ATL. As Beckley Mason notes at TrueHoop, expect a lot of Jeff Teague/Josh Smith pick and roll,…

  6. Cuban says the Mavericks almost traded for Kobe in 2007

    Aug 22, 2012, 8:38 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    The summer of 2007 was the summer of Kobe Bryant’s discontent. Since the Lakers had traded Shaquille O’Neal they had not put new pieces around Kobe that could help win a title, and Kobe let the world know. He asked for a trade, he pressured management, he ripped Andrew Bynum to random guys with a…

  7. Kevin Durant is very happy for Serge Ibaka

    Aug 21, 2012, 8:11 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Serge Ibaka

    Serge Ibaka is making Al Horford money. He is making Joakim Noah money. Ibaka’s new four year, $48 million contract puts him up there with those All-Stars, he is making basically what they are. And Kevin Durant couldn’t be happier for him, he told the Oklahoman. “I’m happy for him. He deserves every penny. He…

  8. Possessions and You: The Atlanta Hawks

    Aug 19, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Hawks forward Smith reacts after a shot in the first half during their game against the Celtics in Game One of their NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs basketball game in Atlanta

    From time to time, we’ll take a look at what teams looked like on offense last year using some basic but nifty charts. Today the Atlanta Hawks.   I’ve done these before with overlays of production, but it’s difficult to get a real indication relative to usage. Points per minute? Still impacted by too many…

  9. Andrew Bynum raises the stakes for Holiday, Turner

    Aug 16, 2012, 2:45 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Andrew Bynum is just one piece. I like that piece, I like the direction the 76ers are going. But as the double teams start loading up on Bynum fast and he gets better at passing out of them (a skill he needs to work on) it just puts more pressure on everyone else. The other…

  10. Jeff Van Gundy questions if Magic fans should stay loyal

    Aug 14, 2012, 1:59 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Is it really worth it? Every fan of a team has asked themselves that at some point. Is the emotional commitment worth the payoff? Are there better things I could be doing with my time and money? Usually we come back around to yes on that question, because the ties to the team are not…

  11. Orlando admits what became obvious: It’s about the draft

    Aug 13, 2012, 1:41 PM EDT

    Rob Hennigan

    There are a lot of ways to question the ultimate decision that Orlando made in trading Dwight Howard. That has to start with, why didn’t you just do this at the trade deadline? I know you wanted to keep your superstar but everyone could see where this was headed, you needed to get out quick…

  12. Good news Bulls fans: At least you’re not getting McGrady

    Aug 8, 2012, 7:10 PM EDT

    Tracy McGrady

    After finally signing Marquis Teague, the Bulls have enough money left under the hard-cap apron to sign one more player — a rookie on a minimum deal. Not a second year player, their minimum is too high. Rookie minimum only. You want some good news, Bulls fans? That means you can’t sign Tracy McGrady. You…

  13. Who is left in free agency? Here’s a list of the key names.

    Aug 3, 2012, 7:24 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    We have made it through the bulk of free agency. Fans are always looking for the next, best thing, the guy who can come in and make a difference. It’s now August and time to be honest — any guy who can really help your team has already been picked up. There are a few…

  15. Jeff Teague says he will be more of a leader in Atlanta

    Aug 2, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    Gilbert Arenas, Jeff Teague

    For a couple years now the refrain has been the same from the Atlanta Hawks coaching staff (or staffs, it has been the same for a couple coaches now): We want Jeff Teague to take charge of this team. I remember coaches preaching that to him at Summer League a couple years back, Larry Drew…

  16. The Inbounds: How to avoid the luxury tax and influence the playoffs, a Chicago Bulls story

    76ers Bulls Basketball

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. There’s something obscenely obvious in the fact that we, the media (but not really because most NBA media think Bird…

  18. Winderman: Despite Dwightmare, we’ve reached NBA slow season

    Aug 1, 2012, 1:34 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    In a non-Dwight year, this is when it tends to stop, in August. As an NBA executive recently explained, there tend to be four stages to the offseason when it comes to personnel moves: — The start of the free-agency period and the resulting immediate frenzy. — The period shortly thereafter when offer sheets are…

  19. Celtics officially sign Collins, three others to round out roster

    Jul 31, 2012, 6:53 PM EDT

    Collins_Jason

    Except for our national Dwightmare, we’ve reached the point in the summer where teams are making small signings to round out their rosters. There are some good players still out there, but we are talking role and end of the bench players now. The big moves are done. With that, we bring you news of…

  20. Clippers trade for Willie Green from Hawks

    Jul 30, 2012, 8:31 PM EDT

    Raptors forward Anderson defends against  Hawks guard Green in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    If things go well for the Clippers, Willie Green will rarely see the court. They have Jamal Crawford to play the two guard spot and they hope Chauncey Billups will be healthy and eating up minutes soon. But, things rarely to plan and the Clippers want to be prepared, so they announced they have traded…

    Boston Celtics' Pierce and Garnett react when the team was called for a technical foul against the Chicago Bulls during NBA basketball game in Chicago

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. As Boston entered last year’s playoffs, they were favored against the Hawks. The biggest reason for that, despite what anyone…

  25. Report: Celtics to sign Jason Collins, bench no longer complete disaster

    Jul 22, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Collins_Jason

    ESPN Boston reports that the Celtics are set to sign free agent center Jason Collins to a veteran-minimum deal. The 33-year-old Collins appeared in just 30 games last season for the Atlanta Hawks. Billed as the “Dwight Stopper,” Collins isn’t an elite defender but among veteran centers, he’s nothing to sneeze at. He’s able to…
