Best news I’ve heard in a while

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

From ESPN’s Marc Stein:

The Atlanta Hawks and Golden State Warriors are closing in on a trade that would find a new home for Jamal Crawford.

NBA front-office sources say that the Warriors and Hawks will soon complete a deal sending Crawford to Atlanta for Acie Law and Speedy Claxton.

Warriors coach Don Nelson made no secret of the fact that Crawford wasn’t in his future plans. By shedding Crawford’s longer contract and by virtue of insurance payments that will cover some of the costs of Claxton, Golden State would secure a decent measure of payroll relief with the trade.

Less clear is what impact the move will have on Atlanta’s forthcoming negotiations with free agent-to-be Mike Bibby. Although Crawford is not a pure point guard, he’s a prolific scorer whose arrival could affect the sort of contract offer Bibby expected to command from the Hawks.

Pre Draft (6/24) Predicition for 09-10 season

Just want this in writing, and i want it known that i can change my overall prediction closer the the season.  But right now what I think is Hawks will finish below Cavs, Magic, Celtics, Heat, Wizards this year and probably Sixers & Bulls and maybe Bobcats and Pistons.  The way it is looking we will get the 6th spot at best.  Tell me I’m wrong.

Also, just read a rumor Brandon jennings may fall to us, I would love that…but the more I think about it the more I just want Woodson gone.
