Hawks shipped out Lou Williams. Damn.
The Hawks must be serious about their cap flexibility this summer, because they’ ve traded away last year’s first-round pick, Lucas Nogueira, to dump some money. Lou Williams’ contract would have counted for about $5.5 million in the upcoming season, but they’ ve swapped it for John Salmons’ contract, which is only partially guaranteed. They’ ll waive Salmons shortly. From ESPN.com: The Hawks, sources say, will immediately waive Salmons to expand their projected salary-cap space for this summer to $15.5
