Speedy Claxton's turn
Claxton got a big 4 year, $25 million contract to be the starting point guard for Atlanta.
Instead, the Hawks brought in Anthony Johnson and drafted Acie Law, then they traded for Mike Bibby.
With Lue and Johnson gone, Claxton now has the opportunity to be the reserve point guard for the Hawks.
This will allow Law to play more shooting guard, while Childress gets some minutes at small forward, and Williams can play some power forward. The Hawks would really benefit with play from Claxton, since we are lacking reserve bigs at the moment.
Hopefully Claxton is healthy and ready to play. Otherwise, this season will be worse than his first season with the Hawks.
