The Atlanta Hawks Have Re-Gained a Good Player

Run this query again and Joe Johnson does not appear. Johnson's season True Shooting Percentage has risen 2.4 percentage points (to 51.3%) over the last four games. It's still below the league average (54%) but hardly out of line with his career average (52.7%, including this season) especially considering his stubborn insistence on playing through serious pain.

I know you had mentioned that it would be difficult to trade for Nash, but if for some reason, we are able to get him without giving away a core piece, do you think it would be a good fit?
Right now, of all the "solid" teams, Atlanta and maybe Lakers looks like the only team that is not really set at the point guard.

Nash would be a great offensive fit anywhere. The offensive difference between Bibby/Crawford and Nash is massive and that's about the only guard trio in which Nash might be the best (well, least bad) defender.
