Salaries I believe do match, for some reason when trades get to big on trade machine it won’t let it go through. Probably because big deals like this never happen but New orleans clears all their contracts off the books and has a core of Williams/Rondo to build around, Boston can still stay in the playoff picture with a starting 5 of Pek/Smith/Pierce/Allen/Teague while acuiring some actual building blocks for the future. Atl gets out of their salaries problems while having a team that allows them to stay in the playoff picture (and also will allow Horford to move to PF).
I'm a Minnesota fan so naturally I love it and I am going around trying to see if other fans from other teams like it. The response I am largely getting is the Hawks wouldn't do it and I just wanted to justify the deal here and see what the good Hawks fans think.
You lose the contracts of Williams and Smith (have to give up Teague though) but you still end up being able to field a competitive team with a starting 5 of: Jack/Johnson/Beasley or Ariza/Horford (moves to natural PF)/Kaman
stastical comparison of teague and jack
it's not much of a current production downfall. Jack is 28 though and Teague is 23 which is probaly the only distinct advantage Teague has
What do ATLiens have to say about it?
