In a story billed as a Josh-Smith-not-going-anywhere-no-sir piece from Jeff, came this nugget at the end:
"It would've been very difficult for them to get better - as a matter of fact, it would start to turn in the other direction very quickly," he said. "They had very little [payroll] flexibility, and to maintain status quo would've meant being a high-tax team, for a team that wasn't going to be good enough."
Not going to argue here, it was an argument Peachtree Hoops made during the season before Joe Johnson became a free agent. Double down for status quo, pay an awful tax later, a tax Ferry says he avoided by paring Johnson from the roster.
The entire piece is a tasty morsel for Hawks fans, in that it speaks to Josh, an up-tempo look on offense next year and a possible contradiction when Ferry mentions Harris and Teague getting the ball in their hands when compared to his words to Lang Greene at Las Vegas.
