damn, that's pretty exciting. i don't know if it's a done deal, but man, looks like a good deal for both teams...

Reef is a proven player, and the grizz are basically going to get 4 players (their pick, atlanta's pick, knight, and wright...). good rebuilding move for the grizz. they have to take a new direction. the old way wasn't working.

and acquiring knight may allow them to trade bibby as well. that may possibly be what they're looking to do.

The deal is official now. Link (http://espn.go.com/nba/draft2001/s/2001/0626/1219115.html)

I think this is a great deal for Atlanta. Look whta there starting 5 could be next season.

Jason Terry
DerMarr Johnson(promissing young player)
Shareef(all-Star IMO)
Theo Ratliff/Toni Kukoc
Nazr Mohammed(if re-signed)/Theo Ratliff

I like what they got there. Then you got Alan Henderson, Matt Maloney and Chris Crawford coming off the bench.

Makings of a really nice team if you ask me. i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
