When Opportunity Knocks
December 16, 2013 12:05 PM
Knock knock knock! Bang bang bang! Boom boom boom! That’s the sound of opportunity knocking at Danny Ferry’s front door. The thing about opportunity is it will not stand out in the cold for long before it goes elsewhere for comfort. Opportunity always seem to come on time and not necessarily at an expected time. Therefore, it would be sage for Ferry to stay alert as to not be caught off guard by a loud thumping sound.
Power move is the name of the opportunity and the time to make a power move may be now for the Atlanta Hawks. With Al Horford and Paul Millsap performing so well early in the season this may be the time to fill a need at the center position by dangling one of the power forwards in the face of Daryl Morey, Houston Rockets general manager, for Omer Asik who, according to the Rockets front office, plan on dealing the 27 year old, seven foot walking double double before December 19th. It will be up to Ferry to answer that door soon because the Cleveland Cavs, Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers may also get a chance to respond to that knock.
John Chuckery and I discussed the trade rumor scenario on the Night Cap (12/16/13) on 92.9fm the game this morning. Just press play below to hear our thoughts on the Hawks potentially making a big move for a big man in the next week or so. You may follow John on twitter @jmch316 and you may follow myself, James Harmon, @nottydred for more Atlanta Hawks news, stats and information from the sports and entertainment cadre. Thank you and stay blessed.
