    Atlanta Hawks

    Go ahead, laugh it up. The Hawks might be the most consistently successful punch line in sports. People mock their dead crowds, their hallowed tradition of playing first-round games on NBA TV, and their uncanny ability to peak at “pretty good” during high times.

    But Atlanta could clear about $17 million for LeBron if it salary-dumps Lou Williams onto one of many, many teams slated to have enough space to soak up his deal. That’s not LeBron’s max, but it’s close. If LeBron is willing to take a haircut, he’s going to do it in Miami, but this is a fun roster to contemplate.

    Good freaking luck trying to guard a starting lineup of Jeff Teague, LeBron, Kyle Korver, Paul Millsap, and Al Horford. That is a ton of shooting and creativity, and if you play stretches with Pero Antic in Horford’s spot, the degree of 3-point shooting reaches scary levels. There’s enough defense among the LeBron-Millsap-Horford trio for the Hawks to survive on that end, and Mike Budenholzer would have them playing a sound system.

    The Hawks under Budenholzer and Danny Ferry are trying to build the Spurs East, only with more 3-point shooting. (Budenholzer is a shooting zealot, and was known as Matt Bonner’s strongest backer on the Spurs’ coaching staff.) They want high-IQ players who keep the machine moving, share the ball, and shoot from range. Ball-stoppers need not apply. You think LeBron fits that vision? Duh.

    Atlanta’s cap sheet is lean enough that it could ink LeBron to a big long-term deal and still have plenty of flexibility to continue building the roster around him.

    Teams can't formally contact free agents until 12:01 a.m. ET July 1, but sources told ESPN.com that the Atlanta Hawks and Miami Heat are two more teams that could join the race for Anthony, depending on how things play out before, during and after Thursday's NBA draft. ESPN.com
    Atlanta Hawks, Miami Heat, Free Agency, Carmelo Anthony
    Interesting!....... Not against Carmelo at all, Just not sure how he fits into Coach Bud's offense. What do you guys think?

    However, the Hawks are also not completely sold on Jeff Teague and could explore the market for him this summer. That's led them to take long looks at both Shabazz Napier and Payton at No. 15 if something materializes in the next few days. Napier, especially, seems to have gained momentum in workouts the past few weeks, and sources say he's moved into a strong possibility in Atlanta. ESPN.com

    Hopefully true if they don't think he is the future PG. I like our GM and coach. They seem to not be playing around. If you don't fit the vision they have for a championship team, you're gone. No waiting around. Now remember, Teague was on his way out last summer. I think we re-signed him after the Paul/Howard dream was no more. So in order to stay competitive we kept him. Now he can be traded.

    The Hawks were the last of a dozen teams to work out Zach LaVine, observes Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today (Twitter link).

    If we stay at 15, this is who I want.

    He's reportedly been made a promise by the Wolves.

    We need to trade up and draft LaVine. Dude has potential. Would like to get Patric Young too, by trading back up into the early 2nd or late first.

    Hoping someone in front of us drafts Saric and Livine drops to us. He can be our more athletic version of Manu

    I hope we get LaVine. We need an explosive player. Tired of always missing out on potential, and hoping to trade up for a star or signing one in FA. Never happens.
