George Willis of the New York Post: Are the Atlanta Hawks going to dump the newly-acquired Michael Doleac?

"Sources said the Hawks plan to waive Doleac and if he clears waivers, the Knicks will move to re-sign him. The Nuggets, Jazz and Clippers, however, are reportedly interested in claiming Doleac."

Got that from realgm.com

If the Mavs get Doleac, who do they waive?

Doleac would never ever get off the pine in Dallas...let the other teams scramble for this spare.

I guess you waive Stephson, but I don't think it matters because I doubt he clears waivers. He is only making 1.5 MM per year so a team like a Utah or Denver can pick him up for the rest of the season for next to nothing

Doleac is negotiating another contract with the Knicks, ESPN is reporting. I didn't know that was possible but Doleac is supposedly going to be a Knick again.

If we can't re-trade for Van Exel, i'm not saying i want to, they shouldn't be able to resign Doleac. I'm surprised Thomas wants him back.

A trade is something that is arranged by clubs and forced on players. If a player is waived they are allowed to sign ANYWHERE they want - including a team that just traded them.

This has to be utter nonsense. Why would the Hawks waive Doleac and eat a 2-year contract? Why dont they trade him for a conditional draft pick, where the conditions are impossible, to someone that wants him? Sounds like more wishful thinking weirdness from the rag that employs Peter Vecsey.

I thought if they waived him, they wouldnt be paying for him. They probably could get a 2nd rounder for him though. That would be the only real difference if Im right.

Please say Im not 0-2 today.
