Bibby to the Atlanta Hawks
The Atlanta Hawks upgraded their team and will be getting Mike Bibby from the Sacramento Kings. Tyrone Lue and Anthony Johnson did a nice job for Atlanta, but Bibby should be a slight upgrade from those two. Also the Kings will be getting Shelden Williams who didn’t really get a chance to play in Atlanta. Shelden is good for blocking shots and rebounding, which the Hawks need bad, but coach Mike Woodson just didn’t see him fitting in.
Bibby won’t have to wait long to face his old teammates in Sacramento. The Hawks will travel out to Los Angeles to play the Lakers on Tuesday February 19th. After that game the Hawks will travel up to Sacramento to face those Kings and Bibby’s old team. It should be interesting to see what type of fan reaction Mike Bibby gets when he returns to Sacramento as an Atlanta Hawk. It’s a tough 5 game west coast trip for the Atlanta Hawks and Bibby’s timing is perfect and maybe the Hawks will be able to get a winning record over these 5 tough games.
I have always liked Mike Bibby and this gives the Hawks a solid man at point guard. They have been lacking that and someone that can knock down long range jumpers and Bibby fills both of those needs. The Atlanta Hawks can now focus on landing a big man in the middle to help with defense and rebounding. The Hawks just need one big guy that can run the floor good and they will have a playoff team in place. Look for the Hawks to show up in the Eastern Conference Playoffs and depending just how fast Bibby can gel with the other Hawks will determine just how far that playoff run might take them. Hopefully this move of sending 4 players for 1, will open up time for Salim Stoudamire and Solomon Jones who deserve to see more playing time.Click here for reuse options!
