And initially told the Hawks to pound sand.

HTown is convinced that albatross is going to hurt for a long time, and I like Seabrook.

However, apparently there has been a change of heart from the Seabrook camp, according to the headline of this Trib article. But then you read it, and hope is again lost, because there is no evidence whatsoever that Seabrook is now willing to waive his no trade clause.

Hawks are f'd


He also has a NWH clause which is harder to shake

or assets, and Chicago would probably have to retain a significant chunk of his salary & cap hit on their books if they wanted to move him. The current CBA would allow the Hawks to retain 50% of his cap hit (about $3.44m) in a trade.

FWIW, Seabrook has denied the report that he was asked to waive his NMC.


Perhaps

He thinks this current form can propel the Hawks into the WC.


I'm sort of amazed that after everything, they are 3 points out of a WC spot right now.

That seems absurd, but here we are.
