Atlanta Hawks: What impact does Blake Griffin signing with the Brooklyn Nets have?

The Atlanta Hawks wisely did not try and sign Blake Griffin. He does not fit with their timeline and, due to his knee injuries, is not able to defend when asked to move laterally.

Atlanta Hawks: How does Lloyd Pierce going impact trade deadline moves
