Dwight Howard’s homecoming in Atlanta was short lived. After just one season with the team, they have cut ties with the veteran big man to open up cap space. Howard will be headed to Charlotte along with the 31st pick in exchange for Miles Plumlee, Marco Belinelli and the 41st pick.

Philadelphia 76ers- Markelle Fultz– The 76ers officially made their move to the top of the draft. This is a lock. Phoenix Suns- Lonzo Ball– TRADE ALERT! Yes, there have been rumors out there of the Suns interest in Lonzo Ball. There is no way that happens at four, so they reach a deal with the Lakers, who are not sold on Ball and are just fine settling with Josh Jackson or Jayson Tatum. Boston- Jayson Tatum– Tatum sneaks his way into the top 3. His stock is on the rise, as he is more polished than Jackson at this point and would probably be a...Continue reading »

According to Tim Tucker of the AJC, the Hawks officially started renovations on Phillips Arena today. The arena is expected to be closed for four months, until basketball season begins. This will be the first of two offseason phases in the renovation, as it is expected to be completed by the 18-19 season. This offseason, the Hawks will remove the wall of suites on one side of the arena and will provide various upgrades. Overall, the renovation is set to cost $192.5 million. It will be paid for mostly by public funding, but the Hawks have signed a non-relocation agreement...Continue reading »

A potential Devonta Freeman extension has been a hot topic all offseason, and it appears it will soon come to fruition. Atlanta is confident they'll have a deal done with Devonta Freeman by the first week of training camp per source #Falcons — Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) June 20, 2017 Freeman has made it clear he wants what he is worth, but has also stated he wants to be “a Falcon for life”, and for now the feeling appears mutual.

Two weeks ago, the Braves had a golden opportunity against some weak NL East opponents to gain some ground on the rest of the National League. They were unable to do so though, losing five of their eight games versus the Phillies and Mets. This past week’s opponents were much tougher, as they began the week in a place where they had not captured a series win since early April of 2014. Washington has had the Braves number over the last several years, but the good guys got their bats going after a silent weekend. They scored 29 runs in the series, winning the rubber...Continue reading »

  Andre Iguodala already took multiple pay cuts to continue to play in the Bay Area for the Warriors in a quest to accomplish something special. They certainly did that, on their way to two NBA titles, as Iguodala himself earned his first NBA Finals MVP in 2015. Though, with the addition of Kevin Durant this year, Iguodala saw a drop in relevance. Taking it even a step further, Iguodala’s services are no longer necessary for the Warriors to accomplish something special. Teams will once again be throwing more money at Iggy than Golden State can afford to, and...Continue reading »

There is a good chance that Paul Millsap’s tenure as an Atlanta Hawks has come to an end. The Hawks are very financially strapped and Millsap is 32-years old, set to make around $45 million in his age 37 season if he is given the full max. It is easy to see why this would be a mistake for the Hawks long-term. The Warriors and the Cavaliers are on top of the basketball world, and no one seems to be close. In the East, there are two potential dynasties in the making in the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers, who are building their core through top draft picks....Continue reading »

The world was introduced to Grady Jarrett during Super Bowl 51, when he sacked the usually unsackable Tom Brady three times. A fifth-round pick out of Clemson, Jarrett could be considered one of the five best players in his draft class by the time his career is over. He is a testament to what the front office and Dan Quinn have been able to accomplish in the late rounds of the NFL draft. And he is about to have a breakout season for the dirty birds. Jarrett was a part of the initial group of players that Dabo Sweeney recruited that not only turned Clemson into a winning...Continue reading »

Though Sean Newcomb once again dazzled in his 2nd straight start, Mike Soroka has been sizzling in his last 3 starts with Double-A Mississippi. Coming into the 2017 season, Soroka was already regarded as a Top 10 Braves prospect according to MLB.com and has solidified himself as a possible top 5 guy by season’s end. Along with fellow 2015 1st rounder, Kolby Allard, the 19 year old Canadian has been nothing short of stellar this season down in Double-A. He has also proved Atlanta’s front office right as they aggressively promoted Soroka after a great year at High-A...Continue reading »
