Off to a good start this season the Atlanta Hawks (7-4) were dealt a major blow today with the news that Al Horford is out for basically the rest of the season. For the annual playoff bound Hawks, it doesn't seem like they're going to fold, especially when they're paying the high salaries for players like Joe Johnson, Al Horford, Josh Smith, Marvin Williams, and Kirk Hinrich.
Perhaps this is the "once in a lifetime opportunity" to trade Andray Blatche?
Could it be possible to trade Blatche and Washington's two 2012 2nd round picks to ATL for the return of Kirk Hinrich (expiring $8 mil contract) and their 2012 1st round pick?
I've also always been a fan of Josh Smith. Maybe for Dray and Nick Young?
Everything's worth exploring!
