Then, almost immediately, the Hawks hooked up with Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll.
Elsewhere, Andre Iguodala, who had talked to the Hawks, agrees to terms with the Golden State Warriors with a 4 year, 48 million dollar contract.
The Warriors were able to do that by sending Andris Biedrins, Richard Jefferson, Brandon Rush and 2014 and 2017 first round picks as well as future second round picks to the Jazz to clear that cap space.
