2012-2013 NBA Division Preview: Southeast Division

Atlanta Hawks – 40-26 (2011-12)

The Atlanta Hawks and new GM Danny Ferry did a great job this off-season rebuilding the roster and developing a new culture. It all started with letting Joe Johnson go to Brooklyn. Sure, he is a perennial All-Star but his ridiculous 6-year, $119 million contract just didn’t seem worth it in the end.

Ferry made up for this loss by picking up a few above average players in Lou Williams, Kyle Korver and Anthony Morrow. All are huge perimeter threats who can thrive off the penetration of newly acquired point guard, Devin Harris.

With a healthy Al Horford playing physical in the box and Josh Smith’s freakish athleticism, it’ll be fun to see how the revamped Hawks do this season.

Key Players: Josh Smith, Al Horford
Key Additions: Louis Williams, Kyle Korver, Anthony Morrow, Devin Harris
Key Departures: Joe Johnson
