Hawks want to Use Rockets' Rebuilding Model


In looking at the current state of team-building in the NBA, it is clear that the idea for most teams is to follow the path taken by the Rockets without ending up like the Mavericks. The Hawks, as they stand, will be competitive, and with good health, will be a playoff team in the East. The hope is that if they’re in the arena enough times, and have enough desirable assets on hand, the Hawks can become Rockets East. They’re a team that, on paper, should not experience a very big drop-off from last year. But when it comes time for Ferry to pick up the phone and gauge the trade and free-agent markets, the Hawks will be in a much better position to make a franchise-changing blockbuster move.

I definitely agree with this strategy for a rebuild. Prep for the future without becoming completely terrible. And with the new CBA, there should be more and more young players that get cast aside due to the economics of it all. It's funny, we have a really good supporting cast, we just need an All Star SF or Center to make us a contender. Hopefully, we end up with the bargaining chips to acquire one
