Atlanta Hawks

  1. Bulls, Magic among many who want Jamal Crawford

    Dec 7, 2011, 10:09 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The Chicago Bulls need a two guard who can create his own shot to really round out their team (and take some pressure off Derrick Rose). They may be close to landing the best two guard on the market right now — Jamal Crawford. The Hawks spark plug off the bench is a free agent…

  2. Circle your calendars: Games not to miss on NBA schedule

    Dec 6, 2011, 8:36 PM EST

    LeBron James Miami Heat Dallas Mavericks

    We’re not so presumptuous as to tell you what to watch… well, yes we are. There is an NBA schedule littered with good games worth watching that was just released today. What follows are the games that leapt off the page at us as ones not to miss. Dec. 25: Miami Heat at Dallas Mavericks:…

  3. Pretty much everyone wants Jamal Crawford

    Dec 2, 2011, 5:29 PM EST

    crawford_jamal

    From Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld: On Wednesday, NBA teams were allowed to contact agents for the first time since June 30, the day before the lockout commenced. Executives were given the opportunity to work the phones and express interest in upcoming free agents ten days before those players can start signing with teams. One player…

  4. Friday morning one liners: Where Afflalo gets some love

    Dec 2, 2011, 11:01 AM EST

    Arron Afflalo

    Our daily list of things you should know about that didn’t fit in our other posts. Who is the most coveted free agent not over 6’11? Arron Afflalo of the Nuggets, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. He is restricted and Denver will match any reasonable offer. Brandon Rush made some tweets that would have gotten…

  5. Kirk Hinrich out for month after shoulder surgery

    Dec 2, 2011, 2:04 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    Tough start to the season down in Atlanta, where Josh Smith is being shopped around and now Kirk Hinrich will miss all of training camp and likely the start of the season. Hinrich had shoulder surgery a couple weeks ago and will be out for about a month, until late December or early January, reports…

  6. Hawks’ Josh Smith still on trade block. Any takers?

    Dec 1, 2011, 9:32 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Around the NBA draft last year the Atlanta Hawks shopped forward Josh Smith around. The feeling was mutual, Smith felt it was time for a change of scenery. However, the Hawks didn’t get any offers they liked. Now with the lockout over, Smith is back up on the trading block, reports Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo.…

  7. Wednesday morning one liners: Portland loves Brandon Roy

    Nov 30, 2011, 11:40 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Do not underestimate the love of the Blazers fan base for Brandon Roy, or how that could weight into plans to use the amnesty clause on him. Carlos Boozer thinks the Chicago Bulls can win an NBA title. This year. How desperate are the Knicks for a big man to take a one year deal?…

  8. Turkish team retires Deron Williams jersey after 15 games

    Nov 30, 2011, 10:50 AM EST

    Deron Williams

    It was a unforgettable, magical whirlwind of basketball these past couple months in Istanbul. I guess. Besiktas, the Turkish team that had Deron Williams while lawyers argued BRI on the other side of the globe, decided to send D-Will off with a jersey retirement ceremony, reports Deadspin (and the video is below). D-Will looked pretty…

  9. Report: Paul Millsap is on the trading block. Any bidders?

    Nov 28, 2011, 8:02 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Golden State Warriors

    We welcome with open arms our first real trade rumor of the post-lockout era. We’ve missed you guys. Jazz forward Paul Millsap is available, according to a story in the Indy Star and backed up by John Hollinger of ESPN. This is not a huge shock, the Jazz were reportedly shopping Millsap around during the…

  10. Monday morning one liners: Coming, going from Europe

    Nov 28, 2011, 11:47 AM EST

    CBA 11/12 First Round: Guangdong Hongyuan v Zhejiang Chouzhou

    With the end of the NBA lockout, NBA players are exiting Europe and heading back to the good ol’ US of A for an NBA season. What players are on the move are the highlights of our morning one liners. If you read one thing today, make it this very thoughtful look at where the…

  11. The Nets are very excited to make their problems worse in free agency

    Nov 27, 2011, 12:54 PM EST

    Deron-Williams

    Here’s the best part about all the games lost and money squandered and damage done to the game in this lockout. All the attempts to curb spending are going to end with a free agency class getting considerably more than it deserves. It has some stars in it, but the best options are either facing…

  12. Jamal Crawford wouldn’t mind playing in Portland

    Nov 7, 2011, 11:45 PM EST

    Jamal Crawford

    Around the league, players love Jamal Crawford. He is a popular guy in league locker rooms. And he’s a guy who can come off the bench and light it up — he’s not going to be efficient doing that, and he’ll get lost on defense every other time down, but he’ll put up points. That’s…

  13. Hawks sale falls apart, team taken off market. Sorry Hawks fans.

    Nov 4, 2011, 6:32 PM EST

    Alex Meruelo

    To Hawks fans hoping for a new ownership to breathe new life into a franchise seemingly stuck in the middle, we’re sorry to pass along this news. The sale of the Hawks to Alex Meruelo has been scuttled — something rumored for a few weeks around concerns about Meruelo’s finances — and now the Atlanta…

  14. More NBA lockout games coming, Memphis and Atlanta up

    Nov 2, 2011, 2:22 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    So long as the lockout drags on, we’re going to see NBA exhibition and charity games put on by players. There is a one in San Jose this coming weekend featuring Warriors old and new, with more on the way. One will be in Memphis next Tuesday and is being put together by Rudy Gay,…

  15. Report: Hawks sale in jeopardy due to new funding questions

    Oct 26, 2011, 7:23 PM EST

    Alex Meruelo

    It seemed like a good story — Alex Meruelo was to become the first Hispanic to own an NBA team, and at the same time rescue a good franchise from the clutches of a dysfunctional and unimpressive ownership group. Meruelo was the guy on the white horse, talking big and he already had a press…

  16. What the Hawks should do when the lockout ends

    Oct 17, 2011, 12:00 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Last season: Same old, same old? Progress and a step back? Stumbling backwards into success? There’s got to be some sort of ridiculous phrase to describe the Hawks’ 2011 season. Their offense took a serious step back, despite all the talk of getting out of Mike Woodson’s system. Larry Drew took over, and the Hawks…

  17. Josh Smith’s new Adidas spot is sweet, comes with poetry

    Oct 4, 2011, 1:44 PM EST

    Josh Smith

    Josh Smith of the Atlanta Hawks is in a sweet new Adidas commercial for the adiZero Ghost. Josh Smith in an ad I like is in and of itself is a bit of a surprise, but there you go. What really makes this work Shihan, a National Poetry Slam Champion, knocking out the rhymes. Hat…

  18. Shaq points to Joe Johnson to explain owners’ mistakes

    Sep 21, 2011, 1:06 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Shaquille O’Neal pulled out the bad contract = lockout card again, but rather than going with the classics — Eddy Curry or Rashard Lewis — he went with the new and threw Atlanta’s Joe Johnson under the bus. Which is both right and wrong at the same time. But we’ll get to that farther down…

  19. Joe Johnson’s shoe closet is larger, nicer than your apartment

    Sep 14, 2011, 8:10 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    This is what can happen when guys get max contracts and feel the need for some home improvements — Joe Johnson’s shoe closet is nicer and more secure than your apartment. You think I’m kidding, but I’m not. It’s 500-square feet and custom built. The Hawks swingman is part of the Jordan Brand, so you…

  20. Report: Woodson likely to be D’Antoni assistant with Knicks

    Aug 24, 2011, 4:33 PM EST

    IL: Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls

    Mike Woodson is the guy who has just missed out. The former Hawks head coach — that team got better every year he was there — has interviewed for every NBA head coaching job opening this summer.  And he is struck out every time. So it looks like he is going to be the “defensive…

  21. New Hawks owner says they are going to win rings

    Aug 9, 2011, 8:18 AM EST

    Alex Meruelo

    There is few things more useless than a press conference where the new owner of an NBA team cannot talk about the transaction of buying the team (because it has not been finalized by the NBA’s board of Governors) nor can he talk about the players (because there is a lockout). This made the usually…

  22. Price tag in Hawks sale reportedly $300 million for 80%

    Aug 8, 2011, 5:26 PM EST

    Image (1) hawks_logo-thumb-250x134-11979-thumb-250x134-11981.gif for post 4050

    How much would you pay for the Atlanta Hawks? Wait, don’t answer yet, we’ll throw in a ShamWow for free… The answer if you are Alex Meruelo is more than $300 million for 75 to 80 percent of the team, reports David Aldridge at NBA.com. That price includes Phillips Arena where the Hawks play. He…

  23. Yes they are sold, but the Hawks will not be on the move

    Aug 8, 2011, 8:12 AM EST

    interior

    The Atlanta Hawks are being sold to a Los Angeles guy, Alex Meruelo and his Meruelo Group. That has made some Hawks fans uneasy about the future of the Hawks in Atlanta — this is a guy whose life and business interests are in Los Angeles and other teams have already flirted with Anaheim. Plus,…

  24. Hawks fans’ long regional nightmare is over, Meruelo to become owner

    Aug 7, 2011, 11:22 AM EST

    Atlanta Hawks Logo

    It’s over. Finally, mercifully, and long since it should have been, it’s over. The Atlanta Hawks have their ownership situation resolved. From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution who secured the exclusive interview this weekend: Meruelo (pronounced mur-rel-o) said some members of the Spirit group will maintain minority ownership positions but that he will own more than 50 percent…

  25. Mike Woodson may be close to being Knicks assistant

    Aug 4, 2011, 10:59 AM EST

    Image (1) woodson_Game-thumb-250x140-11409.jpg for post 1907

    Former Hawks head coach Mike Woodson seems to be closer to being the lead assistant coach under Mike D’Antoni with the New York Knicks, to being the Knicks designated defensive coordinator. Woodson and D’Antoni met Monday and things seem to be moving in that direction, according to Marc Berman at the New York Post. Woodson…
