20 Million Dollar Gift from Hawks

Dunleavy, Murphy, Harrington, and now Crawford- Gone.

Dunleavy, Murphy, Harrington, and now Crawford- Gone.

Overshadowed by the Stephen Curry pick and the Stoudemire rumors was the completion of one of the greatest houdini acts in NBA history. Trading Jamal Crawford saves the Warriors 20 million cap room over the next two years, and rids them of perhaps the worst defender in the NBA. Jamal is a wonderful person but drifting out for an outlet when a shot goes up is not rebounding. And scoring 50 once every two months doesn’t make up for the other 25 mediocre performances. You can see what the Hawk fans think at PeachTree Hoops.

The trade completes a long, arduous track to fix the mess left from Chris Mullen’s horrendous long-term signings of Mike Dunleavy and Troy Murphy. Somehow Bird took them off our hands for Stephen Jack and Harrington, but then Nelson must have seen one of Crawford’s 50 point efforts and had a brain freeze. Anyway, Harrington became Crawford became a 10 million albatross, but thanks to the friendly Hawks, that is now shed. Thank you Mike Woodson and friends, and good work Nellie!
