    Hoopsworld generally speaking are terrible at rumors / breaking news (from their own sources). they're almost totally wrong on everything to the point where I wonder if they're just making shite up .

    I don't really care about that. They are usually right about Hawks related news and I post their reports along with many other sites for NBA news that involve this team.

    Hawks’ Second Round Draft Pick Mike Muscala Signs Overseas
    Cole Patty — July 31, 2013 — Leave a comment

    Late Wednesday night, Mike Muscala’s twitter account broke the news on him signing with Blusens Monbus Obradorio. This kind of move had been rumored for awhile now, so this is far from a surprise. With Muscala needing playing time to develop, he was likely either going to play overseas or find himself in the D-League and sometimes scrapping for leftover minutes after the Hawks signed of Gustavo Ayon and Pero Antic. So, in order to free up more roster space, the team was more than fine with Mike playing in Spain while retaining his rights.
    Jason Walker of Peachtree Hoops suggested that Greg Oden's "Decision" could determine whether we keep Nog here or send him overseas to develop -- a scenario that makes some sense based on other moves they've made.

    Hawks have not made final decision on where Lucas Nogueira will play next season. Still likely to play in Spain.

    Per league source, Hawks have waived DeShawn Stevenson. Clears way for DeMarre Carroll signing. #ATLHawks

    Been waiting for this news. They will probably use the mini-MLE on Carroll to save room.

    [Demarre] Carroll is a more than capable offensive player, as shown by his 15.5 PER and 53.5 True Shooting percentage last season. He is most effective attacking the basket on off-ball cuts, running in transition, and scoring after offensive rebounds. In transition, Carroll was excellent last season shooting 64.6% from the field on 65 transition field goal attempts, per Synergy Sports. He will look to become a more proficient spot-up shooter this season, as he shot just 34.7% on 118 spot-up attempts last season. However, being surrounded by other shooters such as Korver, John Jenkins, Lou Williams, and others, Carroll’s spot up shooting will likely not be a prominent spot-up shooter. On offense, Carroll’s role will likely be small and he will be asked to attack the basket and bring pace and energy to the offense. The main focus for Carroll will be on the defensive end where he will look to come in and be a key defender for the Hawks on the wing.

    Head coach Mike Budenholzer has stated on multiple occasions that his main focus is on creating a defensive identity for the Hawks, and Carroll will be a good defensive presence on the wing. Carroll’s size, at 6-foot-8, 212 pounds, allows him to defend bigger small forwards, and his length makes him effective closing out on shooters. Per Synergy Sports, last season Carroll held opponents to 42.2% shooting, fouled on only 7% of his official defensive possessions (any possession ending in a field goal, turnover, or free throw), while forcing turnovers on 9.1% of his official defensive possessions. Carroll is a very good pick-and-roll defender, allowing opponents to score on only 35.6% of the time as the pick-and-roll ball-handler against him, and forced a turnover on an incredible 26% of pick-and-roll possessions against him.

    Adding Carroll will allow the Hawks to experiment with different lineups and back-court combinations depending on the opponent due to his defensive prowess. Prior to Carroll’s signing, Korver was the only true small forward on the roster (and he spent part of last season playing shooting guard) which would have forced Budenholzer and the coaching staff to be creative with their rotations. Carroll gives the Hawks much needed depth and will provide a defensive presence on the wing that they needed.

    The Hawks announced today that Mike Budenholzer has added Jim Thomas to his staff as an assistant coach. Thomas will join Quin Synder, Kenny Atkinson, Taylor Jenkins, and Darvin Ham on the coaching staff.

    From the Hawks’ press release:
    Most recently a college scout for the Oklahoma City Thunder for the last four years, Thomas was previously with the New York Knicks (scout, 2005-07), Indiana University (assistant coach, 2001-04), and Toronto Raptors as an assistant coach (1996-99) and scout (1994-96).

    “We’re pleased to add Jim to our coaching staff,” Budenholzer said. “He’s been a part of a number of successful programs, and his coaching and playing experience will blend well with our group.”

    Selected in the second round (40th overall) of the 1983 NBA Draft by the Pacers, the 52-year-old Thomas appeared in 161 games over four seasons with Indiana, the Los Angeles Clippers and Minnesota, averaging 8.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 20.9 minutes (.471 FG%, .763 FT%). He also spent time playing in the Continental Basketball Association, World Basketball League and with Baloncesto Murcia in Spain.

    Thomas played collegiately at Indiana from 1979-83, where he was the starting shooting guard on the Hoosiers’ 1981 National Championship team. He was also a 10th round draft pick of the Green Bay Packers in the 1983 NFL Draft as a defensive back. He grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

    The Hawks may waive PG Shelvin Mack, whose 2013-14 contract is fully unguaranteed, and he's already drawing interest from Olimpia Milano.

    Atlanta could decide to keep Mack as a third PG but he'd be unlikely to earn many minutes with Jeff Teague and rookie Dennis Schroeder in uniform. He averaged 4.6 points and 2.2 assists in 31 appearances with the Wizards, Sixers and Hawks last year, while shooting a career-best 36.7 percent from downtown.

    So new details on sleeved jerseys... 5 teams will add a sleeved jersey to their uniform options... 20 will wear them at least once.
    Sleeved jersey will make appearances during marquee games on Christmas Day and St. Patrick's day... At least 20 teams next season.
    Steve Kyler / HoopsWorld

    It wouldn't surprise me if the Hawks were in on this, since they have experimented with so many different uniforms over the past decade. I also believe this is just part of the league's bigger plan to slowly move to soccer-style NBA jerseys featuring various ads prominently on the front and sleeves instead of team logos. More space to sell.

    Lucas Nogueira, one of the Hawks’ first-round draft picks, will remain in Spain next season.

    The 20-year-old center will stay with Asefa Estudiantes Madrid for another year to continue his development. The Hawks will retain the rights to the seven-foot Nogueira.

    “We are very encouraged by what we’ve seen from Lucas this summer,” general manager Danny Ferry told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Monday. “Going back to Estudiantes will allow him to continue develop while also playing meaningful minutes against very good competition. We will closely monitor his progress as he works towards his goals as a basketball player.”

    The AJC reported last month that Nogueira would most likely to remain overseas following several offseason moves to bolster the Hawks frontcourt. Second-round pick Mike Muscala, from Bucknell, has already signed to play in Spain next season to continue his development. The Hawks have signed point guard Dennis Schroder, their other first-round pick.

    ^ I predict James Young will be a top 5 pick, and the second Kentucky player selected.
