    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks

    A couple weeks ago Ivan Johnson gave NBA teams an ultimatum: give me a decent offer of I’m going to play overseas next season.

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Ivan Johnson wants to stay in the NBA, but he’s tired of waiting around for an offer to roll in. He’s got options — teams in Italy and China have come knocking with decent offers — so he and his agent are giving NBA teams a deadline, reports Chris Haynes at CSNNW.com. A source close…

    Aug 17, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks

    After two somewhat productive seasons with the Hawks, bruising big man Ivan Johnson is an unrestricted free agent. While he’s been in talks recently with a few NBA teams — including the New York Knicks — the offers have been slow to come, and no team has been willing to step up with anything longer…

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    The Knicks are trying to round out the end of their roster, the guys who will rarely get off the bench but can provide a little something when they do. We told you they are in talks with Jannero Pargo, a point guard who has bounced around but never stuck in the league. Now comes…

  11. Report: Chris Paul, Dwight Howard text about teaming up. This will not happen.

    Jun 14, 2013, 12:43 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    For the owners, pretty much half the reason for the lockout last year was to put in place an economic system that prevents stars from doing what the Miami Heat did with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. (Technically they still could have done that because they stripped the roster all the way down…

  12. Pacers’ playoff-best offense disintegrates in Atlanta

    Apr 27, 2013, 10:58 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Devin Harris needed just 4.5 seconds to slice through the Pacers’ defense for a layup late in the first half, leaving only 1.8 seconds for the Pacers. George Hill launched a desperation heave that obviously missed, but the look was only marginally better than the shots Indiana got most of the game. The Hawks’ offense…

    zaza pachulia

    Zaza Pachulia has missed six straight games due to a sore right Achilles. Which isn’t good.

    Larry Drew, Josh Smith, Kyle Korver

    PHOENIX — Atlanta Hawks head coach Larry Drew was at a loss as to why his team, which had won four straight and six of its last seven, played so poorly against the Suns and lost 92-87 on Friday in Phoenix. He needed only to take a walk through his postgame locker room to find…

  17. It’s pretty much what you’d expect: Hawks cruise past Bobcats

    Dec 13, 2012, 11:34 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks are hot. They have won 5 out of 6 and if you want to look a little farther back 11 out of their last 13. Then you can look at their schedule and say they did it against weaker teams (the lost to the Heat this week). I’d say so what? At the…

  21. NBA Season Preview: Atlanta Hawks

    Oct 4, 2012, 3:58 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Last season: Just another Hawks season. That’s the best way to put it after a year where despite losing Al Horford for the vast majority of the season, Atlanta managed to land a top four seed in the East. They had this bizarro season underneath the headline of “Boring.” They would look awesome one night,…
