Danny Ferry LOVES cap space (100% true)

Danny Ferry was hard at work this afternoon as he dealt away Lou Williams and super-afro’d-prospect Lucas Nogueira to the Toronto Raptors. The Hawks receive John Salmons and his friendly contract (team-option; likely to be waived).

ESPN’s Marc Stein provides some clarity in this here little “tweet” thing.

  1. Ferry just gave away a draft pick to rid the team of a contract he was responsible for….

    So disappointed right now….

      While I agree that he was responsible for signing Lou, it wasn’t like he was on a terrible deal. It was a very tradeable contract that fits in with Toronto’s backup plans if they can’t resign Kyle Lowry. I’ll have more reaction to the trade in a separate story soon.

      • Brandon, I noticed your reaction story posted today does not have a ‘Comments Section’. Is HawksHoop doing away with the comments on all stories from this point out?

        Is there another forum on tap for Hawks fans to chat on the site?
