    Deal: Hawks agree to deal with Sefolosha: 3 years, $12 million

    The Atlanta Hawks have reached an agreement with free agent Thabo Sefolosha on a three-year, $12 million deal, sources told ESPN.com on Thursday.

    The Hawks were looking to add a wing player who could be a defensive specialist after trading away Lou Williams to the Toronto Raptors last week.

    I expect Ferry to pull of a bigger move (possible trade as we are extending the waive period of Salmons' contract for some reason and still have cap space). For this though, we have a system in place and they seem to think he fits, so I approve.

    A low key, good signing. I'm surprised a contender didnt get him, could've been a pivotal piece to the puzzle......

    He needs to really work on his release. I feel like he takes too much time to get a shot off.

    In the East, you never know. Atlanta quietly has a nice team/foundation to work with. If they were healthy, it's possible they beat Indy in round 1.

    It's over 9000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Which matters because that's about what I'd pay Sefolosha at this point. Big time over pay.
    We're better than you
    And we know it

    We were 3rd in the East until Horford went down and the injury bug started biting. No excuses because every team gets injuries, but I like what we're doing. There has to be one or two more "big" moves for the Hawks and we'll see how solid we are. And by "big" I mean "Hawks 'big'" ... not "big" like a Melo or James lol

    Exactly. It was their first year together for the most part, so they aren't at the point where they can get all these injuries and still be successful. Milsap I thought was a steal, and I'm expecting maybe another move like that for you guys.

    Admittedly, I'm kind of a bandwagoner now because I want to see Budenholzer do well, and like that he will be in a stable organization with Ferry there.

    Thabo is a quality defender and Hawes is a nice piece to stretch the floor but these are guys who you put around superstar players you dont build a team of them which is what the HAWKS have done.

    1, we don't have Hawes. 2, Thabo is coming off the bench most likely, so we are not building a team of 'them' when he is hired to do a job (defend and knock down the 3). Role player for role player duty.

    People can hate on Horford's star marketability or Millsap for that matter, but if the both of them stay healthy together finally, it's called basketball, and these 2 is the best front court in the East. Of course we don't have a shoe seller, yet, but we have building a team full of guys that play their roles perfectly. The offense is designed for no one player to hog the ball anyways, so no need for a Melo.

    We also are not done yet, and Ferry's #1 goal is to finally find a star player, so it isn't like he is ignoring it. If we can't get a Lebron, we stay flexible with the cap all the time until we sign/trade/draft one.

    Why so defensive? I never said Thabo was starting. I said most of your roster is made up of players of role player quality which is the truth except for Horford. Nobody is "hating" on the Hawks they are sorely lacking in the talent department but he have good Coach and GM who looks like he has a long term plan that doesn't involve tanking which is respectable but leaves the Hawks treading water.
