It’s also been a rough March for the Hawks, who were humming along at 33-26 and seemingly comfortable in the No. 5 spot in the East when February wrapped up. But a seven-game losing streak in the meat of the month hurt Atlanta on its way to a 6-10 month, and torpedoed Hawks’ stretch run. They now sit just three games above .500 and in a virtual tie for fifth with the Bucks, with the Heat and Pacers just two games behind.

T.S. Eliot once wrote that April is the cruelest month, but you can’t blame the Cavs — and others — for begging to differ.
The greatest exception to that theory is, of course, his college head coach, one John Thompson Jr., all 6-10 of him. Yet another reason why this hire was destiny.
Mens Benardrick McKinney Jersey It’s no secret the Kings are in disaster mode after a number of terrible trades over the past few years, capped by the trade of their best talent in years, DeMarcus Cousins, for pennies on the dollar. The team has few talented prospects and has already dealt its 2019 first-round draft pick, incidentally to the Sixers, in what was one of most lopsided trades of the decade.
It’s unclear what role the Kings want Hinkie to play in their rebuild, but according to Wojnarowski, Ranadive has been looking to place someone over current general manager Vlade Divac.
Hinkie’s Process to make the 76ers a contender was controversial at best, but it left the team with loads of promising, though injured, talent, including maybe this season’s best rookies, Joel Embiid and Dario Saric, as well as Ben Simmons. The Kings have had no such vision; thus the Dumpster fire of a roster that Ranadive thinks can be led by 23-year-old rookie Buddy Hield, the main piece Sacramento received for Cousins. If there’s anyone who can turn the little talent that’s left in Sacramento into something more, it’s Hinkie, who was notorious for trading prospects at their peak for an inflated market value.
