Word is they’ve got something brewing, a trade that could drastically change the look of this team heading into this week’s Western Conference road trip and beyond.Alright, you've got my attention. It's not Mike Woodson getting replaced by someone competent, but it's something. You know what, I'm so intrigued that I will, for the first time in weeks, slog through some of the comments on Sekou's blog.
It wouldn’t be right to share details right now. Not with the particulars still somewhat murky and no deal officially done (what I can tell you is that not all the talent is heading to the Western Conference. Some of it might head East).
But if you come here anytime over the weekend, there will be updates. Seriously, I wouldn’t leave you hanging after this type of build up. And if the deal I’ve heard rumblings about doesn’t happen, I’m going break it down for you as well.
Good thing I do, as one hour and seven minutes after the blog post went up, Sekou added this in the comments:
If the deal gets done the way it’s been detailed to me, the Hawks keep their core intact and add one of the pieces they’ve desperately needed.That's got to be a big man, right?
UPDATE: Sekou, again in the comments:
In this deal you don’t have to give up Marvin or Childress and Golden State has nothing to do with it. Overall, it’s a pretty sweet deal for the Hawks, who I’ve been writing for months have all the tools necessary to get a deal done. They have the expiring contracts and several young guys on deals that can be combined to net a quality player.I hope it's true even though I wrote the opposite for an upcoming Blogger Roundtable this past week. If the expiring contracts of Lue, Anthony Johnson, Lorezen Wright, and Shelden Williams' rookie contract can be turned into something useful, I'll gladly eat crow.
