  • Marc Methot happy to find new home in Dallas
    Marc Methot is happy that his playing future is finally settled.

On Monday night, they shipped the veteran to Dallas, which ended the craziness of the last week. "It was tough, not only for myself but for my pregnant fiancée," Methot said. "I think the unknown aspect of it all was the worst part. Not knowing where we were going to end up and the uncertainty of all that was tough." Yesterday, 7:32 pm
  • Report: Mutual interest between Hawks, Gagner

It'll be interesting to see where Gagner lands and how much he'll cost if he hits the open market on July 1st. It would be surprising to see him hit the 50-point mark again next season.
