I got this idea after reading an article in the Pacers section saying tht the Hawks would ship out bibby and williams for cap relief.
Pacers get a veteran point guard who has been far in the playoffs and is not horribly overpaid (5.5 mil a year ) and doesn't have a bloated contract ( just 2 years) and the power forward of the future in Al Horford and it will be easier to re-sign him if he's on the Pacers already.
The Kings cap space allows them to recieve Marvin williams without giving anything up .
Hawks get the cap relief and not that bad of players in Troy Murphy , TJ ford and Brandon Rush.

Why would the Hawks do this after commiting 120+ million on Joe Johnson? If you commit 120 million on Joe Johson, you're telling me you're trying to remain a contender. Shipping Horford and Bibby for cap relief would totally undermine that.
Why commit a ton of payroll on one guy and then cry for cap relief, when you can let the one guy go, make this trade and then spend money on better peices.
I dont buy that Atlanta would ship Horford for cap space.
I'm not a Mike Bibby fan, but it seems like a fairly even trade for the most part. Personally I'd rather wait until next year's free agency period and just sign Horford. With all of their funds committed to Johnson, Smith, Bibby, and Williams for the next several years I don't see where they will have a lot of room to re-sign Horford.
I dont think Atlanta would hesitate to take a good deal for Horford (not saying I think it will be us) but you have to believe they dont have the money to resign him so they might as well get something for him. Let's be honest the Hawks are not a contender, more of a 2nd tier team
Why would Hawks do this? Theyre trade a major future piece, Horford, away
I'm not sure they would. But I think it would have a chance simply due to the fact that if the Pacers truly do want Horford next season, we can give him a deal they wouldn't even think about considering. This way, they at least receive something in return.
Granted, that may not be true, and the Pacers may not even want Horford.
