The Hawks, like most Eastern Conference teams, are trying to find a way to unseat the Cavaliers.
After hiring new general manager Travis Schlenk, the franchise may be ready to make some changes. But don’t expect center Dwight Howard to go anywhere anytime soon.
Listen, Dwight is one of the best big guys in the league still, Schlenk told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Friday. He averaged 13 points and 13 rebounds a game. He’s one of the best rebounders in the league. He’s one of the best rim protectors in the league.
I haven’t had a chance to talk to Dwight personally. We’ve exchanged some text messages. I certainly plan to talk to him soon and get to know him. I’m not going to judge you from what I’ve heard. Let me see you face-to-face.

It would be a drastic move to get rid of Howard after he signed a three-year, $70.5 million deal last offseason, especially considering there is a good chance Atlanta will lose power forward Paul Millsap to free agency. Losing both frontcourt starters in the same offseason would be tough to manage.
