    He doesn't want to play behind or with Howard apparently.

    No doubt (because he really can't, as I suggested in the Parsons-Howard thread last week), but the Bobcats reference has to make Jordan cringe.

    I dont see Asik going to the Hawks now...not after the signing of Millsap.

    Millsap is a PF....Meaning it looks like the Hawks will be keeping Horford at Center next season.

    When will the Hawks learn? Get a true center to and finally put Horford at PF, and then you're going to have some real competition against other teams.

    I personally like Horford at the five. He gives up a little size, but he is long enough and physical enough to defend the position. It isn't like he faces many good offensive pivots with Howard now out of Orlando. Offensively, put a big guy at the five and there is no spacing. Horford can hit his mid range jumpers, but doesn't go beyond 18 feet or so with it and most centers struggle defending the pick and roll with him.

    True, but I guess I just think back to the days of watching him and Noah on the floor together and it just seams like it would be better for the Hawks. When was the last time the Hawks had a starting center taller than 6'10"?

    I am not a Hawks guy, so you would know better. The other thing to remember is that Noah actually played the four at Florida and Horford the five. I guess I also can't get past the terrible images of Shaq and Amare or Chandler and Amare playing together. In today's NBA, with the rules favoring smaller, quicker players, it just seems you are better off letting a guy like Horford use his athleticism as an advantage over slower bigs and his physicality and strength over smaller bigs. Put him at the four, then he will be out on the perimeter defending stretch fours or threes playing the four in smaller lineups.

    Maybe Atlanta can get lucky this year. They are never going to attract free agents, so the cap space is useless, but if they could get a top-five pick in next year's draft to go with Horford and Teague, then they would have a nice core.

    Horford played the 5 at UF and Noah played the 4 if I am not mistaken.

    Don't blame Asik a bit. He went from being Noah's backup to becoming a starter and major contributor in one season. He found a team that he was well suited for and thrived.

    Didn't Noah play the 5 on defense? He was definitely our primary rim defender.

    More so as a junior, but Donovan also liked him out in space defending the 1/4 pick and roll stuff, switching on the perimeter, etc.

    I fully admit that I have never really looked at an athletes twitter account... but is that really his? Maybe they are all more uncensored than I expect? I have no real problem with it, but tweets like "Waist deep in hookers and blow #NBA #AllStar2013 #winning" are something I can imagine the Rockets/NBA not wanting.

    Apparently Ferry is trying to keep the team competitive and not gunning for the draft. He's targeting Monta Ellis now and may let Teague walk.
