The NBA draft is tonight, and the latest from ESPN.com's Andy Katz is that the Hawks could roll the dice on a trade. Or two:
The proposed deal between Seattle and Atlanta, with the Sonics sending Luke Ridnour to the Hawks for the No. 11 pick (which would have likely been used for Eastern Washington's Rodney Stuckey), is dormant but may not be totally dead. Multiple sources told ESPN.com that the Hawks weren't interested in the deal. The Sonics were waiting for the Hawks to show their interest Wednesday but to no avail. But if the Hawks can't move their two lottery picks (Nos. 3 and 11) for Amare Stoudemire with Phoenix, who in turn would get Kevin Garnett with the Timberwolves receiving the picks, then the Ridnour trade could resurface.
However it shakes out, the Hawks have the chance to go a long way toward pulling this team together ... or setting back the franchise another five years.
Hours before the draft, here are YouTube clips on the ones that could have been: Greg Oden and Keith Durant.
