Here is an article on Peachtree Hopps that attempts to explain the Lin trade

We have to remember that they are communicating with Dennis.   And I'm guessing the message is that "Hey, we are looking at trades but if we go into the season with  you that's great because we'll have a ton of backcourt talent and possibly we can move you at the deadline once your court case is settled.   We are in a multi year rebuild and will do our best to get you someplace where you can compete in the playoffs".   Dennis will know that the better he plays, the less trouble he makes, then the more likely he attracts interest from good teams. 

True, but I just don't trust that he's mature enough to not let that affect him throughout the course of the season.  Especially if he isn't getting big minutes.  Either way it's looking like we'll have to let it play out that way regardless unless some sort of out of court settlement happens.

I'm guessing we don't see very strict "rotations" from CLP.  So I think there will minutes for everyone and we will see 2 PGs a lot.

I won’t be buying any Hawk’s tickets this year.....fancy new digs or not.  

I'm good for opening night to see the new place, but I feel you.

We aren't going to see much coaching at all.

If so, that will validate KB and my prediction that the team wants to lose this year.  When healthy, Lin has shown the ability situationally defend certain SGs for limited minutes but neither Dennis nor Trae will be able to do this at all.

Dennis played off the ball some last year.   

I'll be going to games to see Trae and Collins.   Finally got some dynamic players on the team.  Losing doesn't bother me as much as being boring and lacking in talent.

Last year was the first time in years I missed opening night. I'll be back this year. I hope it's a weekend game.

Yep.  That way he can poison the locker room.
