I don't know where these photos came from, but it looks like it came from a collection of yearbook "Most likely to end up on a Milk Carton" photos....Sergiy's is the greatest...Proactiv's next spokesman....

Brett,I keep seeing names disappear from the FA list and it seems like one out of 3 could have helped the Hawks at a reasonable price. Do you have any idea or insight as to WTF the front office is doing these days? Do you anticipate any reasons for optimism in the imminent future? (Brad Miller, Raja Bell, etc.)

Ian --

The Hawks sold the 31st pick in the draft, are spending less on a head coach than any other team in the league, and structured every one of their multi-year player contracts to take a dip this season in order to spend money on Joe Johnson. I suspect there's no more money to spend until they shed salary.

Any possibility of that (shed) this offseason, or do you think that what we see is what we get?

Thanks.

Interesting to see that Hendrix is headed for Israel after playing so well in the Spanish league.

Jaycee Carroll (a guy I think deserves an NBA gig, although not with the Hawks), who finished second to Hendrix in the Jugador Revelacion voting, is also planning on going from Spain to Israel.

Weird. I was under the impression that the Spanish league was pretty significantly superior to any ball being played in Israel.
