According to realgm:
The Atlanta Hawks today signed restricted free agent center Zaza Pachulia to an offer sheet, according to Executive Vice President/General Manager Billy Knight. Per club policy, terms of the offer were not disclosed. According to the NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Milwaukee Bucks will have seven days from today to match the offer sheet.

A two-year NBA veteran, the 6-11, 240-pound Pachulia averaged 6.2 ppg and 5.1 rpg in 18.9 mpg last season (.452 FG%, .644 FT%), appearing in 74 contests for Milwaukee. He spent his rookie campaign (2003-04) with Orlando, averaging 3.3 ppg and 2.9 rpg in 11.3 mpg (59 games).

He was originally drafted in the second round (42nd overall) of the 2003 NBA Draft by the Magic. Following his season in Orlando, he was selected by Charlotte in the 2004 Expansion Draft, then acquired by the Bucks for a 2004 second-round draft choice.

I think we'll just take whatever's left over in the garbage can after all the big cats are done gorging themselves.

If Hunter's the guy the Mavs want, this does make him more likely to be available.
