    No way of that happening.

    I think I read in this forum where folks were debating whether the Hawks are a playoff and I think people were debating whether they will be better than last year. Only one of those topics should be dignified with a response. There are only eight playoff spots of course and the top five are spoken for..

    NYK
    NETS
    CHI
    IND
    MIA


    That leaves three spots for the rest of the Eastern Conference teams..

    Doesn't matter. I've watched all the summer le
    ague games, and while Dennis is talented, he needs some guidance and developing. Its one thing to do it in summer league, another to do it vs Nba Vets. Dennis needs a lot of Growth. He will do fine as a 3rd PG for now, although i think he will end up ahead of Mack in training camp. As Teague backup, he will learn and
    get better.

    I wanted Camby years ago, when he was still at the top of his game. I wouldn't mind picking him up now, this team needs a true center ("glue move"). ATL probably has one of the shortest frontcourts in the game today. He wouldn't have to log major minutes. He could easily come in and rotate playing next to Horford & Sap. I think he would be a good mentor for Lucas as well. I'm not sure if Camby would sign with a noncontender at this point of his career though. If not Camby, I would definitely sign Mozgov..

    So Teague gets matched (called it), signed Brand (overpay but I understand), and Nog & "Shredder" are the darlings of Summer League.

    First Look: Lucas Nogueira
    By Kevin Pelton | ESPN.com

    The second thing you notice about Lucas Nogueira, after his hair, is his long arms. Nogueira's 7-foot-6 wingspan is the centerpiece for nearly everything positive he does. Because he's so long, Nogueira can simply reach over opposing players to secure offensive rebounds and putbacks. Defensively, his arms give him immense shot-blocking potential, though he still must determine when to challenge shots and when to hang back and box out. His aggressiveness is a big reason Nogueira struggles on the defensive glass. He's also gotten pushed around at times in Vegas and will have to add strength to compete against NBA opponents, which is to be expected from a player who doesn't turn 21 until next week.
    Dennis Schroeder A Refreshing Summer Find
    By Danny Nowell | TrueHoop Network

    LAS VEGAS -- There is a certain player type that tends to make waves at summer league. Let's put it plainly: gunners.

    Whether fringe veterans relishing the opportunity to let fly at will or young lottery picks showcasing their ability to light it up, players who have the ball in their hands the most tend to garner the most highlights in Vegas. All of which makes Atlanta's Dennis Schroeder something of a surprise.

    Most viewers wouldn't begrudge a 19-year-old first-round point guard his green light; the willingness to miss shots a player might be counted on to hit during the season can be a developmental positive. But if Schroeder has the go-ahead, he's choosing instead to showcase his prudence and ability to control a game on relatively few shots.

    On Wednesday, the German guard was the best player on the floor during the Hawks' overtime loss to the Blazers, but he shot 4-for-11 from the field. It's the way he pins defenders to his hips, the way he pulls fellow rookie Lucas Nogueira by the waistband during timeouts and his insistence on setting up his teammates that set Schroeder apart. Where others see a need to prove they belong as scorers, Schroeder is building his reputation by filling in the gaps.

    Don't let the steals-and-assists-heavy stat lines fool you, though. While Schroeder might not seek to punish the rim out of every pick-and-roll, he possesses jets and a handle that will make him a tough cover for years. On the final play of regulation Wednesday, Schroeder juked C.J. McCollum so viciously that the audience stood and gasped as Schroeder threaded a pass to a wide-open John Jenkins. Jenkins missed the shot, but the point was made: He might not look like what you would expect, but Dennis Schroeder does not blend into a crowd.
    I like what I've heard about both. Those worried about Nog's weight (or lack thereof) should remember Joakim Noah weighed around 225-230lbs when he entered the 2007 draft, has stayed relatively close to there, and can defend pretty much any big in the league. Same goes for Larry Sanders. It's a tough call for Nog but he has time on his side, I think I'd keep him over here to add weight/strength even if he doesn't play much this upcoming season.
