Jamaal Franklin San Diego State - Atlanta Hawks

Howard Smith – USA Today

The Atlanta Hawks enter the 2013-14 season with only three players under contract and will in turn look to the NBA draft and free agency in hopes of reshaping what’s been widely considered a stagnant organization.

So with the draft set to kick off on June 27, it’s never too early for the speculation mill to start churning – especially when you’re ESPN’s resident clairvoyant Chad Ford. Turns out he feels Rudy Gobert and Jamaal Franklin would be in the Hawks’ best interest.

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.

Rondo Perfectly Guesses Atlanta's Final Play

Say what you will about Rajon Rondo, but there's no way to deny that he's an incredibly smart basketball player. Last evening against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sacramento Kings were up by three points with 1.9 seconds left, and Atlanta had one final possession to tie things up. Rondo immediately recognized the play the Hawks had drawn up and directed DeMarcus Cousins to an empty space on the floor where the Hawks were planning to send a player to take a three. Rondo's smarts made the Hawks botch the play, and the Kings held serve for the win.
