Back with another summer time proposal.
The Hawks have a few areas of needs that will take them to the next level in my opinion. But they depend on the rotation. Today I will assume that the Hawks will go big the entire season and find a starting Center while playing Al at PF and Smoove at SF. To add, a back up PF and wing player are needed to round out the bench.
The Lottery has opened up a possible option for the Hawks. The Cavs are obviously in rebuilding stage and have the #1 and #4 pick. With those picks they are projected to take Kyrie Irving and Center Enas Canter. If that is the case, they would be willing to part ways with Andersen Varejao. They would have two young centers in Canter and Simih Erden still on the roster with J.J. Hickson at power forward, but are void at SF.
Thus, the Hawks trade Marvin Williams and Kirk Hinrich to Cleveland for Varejao and Baron Davis. Williams' contract is shorter and it would be an opportunity for Marvin that he hasn't had in Atlanta. Davis would basically play the role of Jamal Crawford and is a better threat because of his playmaking ability for other players.
After that, resign Damien Wilkins and round the rotation out by signing Anthony Parker. And maybe Sergiy Gladyr is ready to come over (he could be the reason for the the Jordan Crawford giveaway, fingers crossed).
Check this out on Sergiy - http://youtu.be/t2n6sGrzKPg (4:07 - 5:18, 6:50 - 7:58, 9:05 - 10:25)
PG - Teague, BD, Pape Sy
SG - Joe Johnson, Anthony Parker, Sergiy Gladyr
SF- Smoove, Damien Wilkens
PF - Al Horford
C - Varejao, Zaza, Jason Collins
This would be a very good defensive team with many interchangeable parts. Teague and BD could play in the back court together at times, with JJ at the SF. Smoove will play some at the PF postion and Varejao could play along side Zaza or Collins if necessary. Al can also play at the Center position. So depth would definitely be gained in the interchangeable parts.
