So Dallas will get consideration if he doesn’t get a huge financial offer somewhere else? “Always,” he said. “Dallas has always been home. I’d give them some consideration and see what happens. I still have a couple days left to try to enjoy the summer before things start to happen. But I’m just playing my options and see what’s open. I’ll make a decision when it’s time.” Dallas Morning News

The Hawks will use the same starting lineup in Game 2 of their playoff series with the Pacers. The first unit will be Jeff Teague, Devin Harris, Kyle Kover, Josh Smith and Al Horford. “I think after every game, particularly a game where things don’t go as well (you consider change),” coach Larry Drew said Wednesday. “It’s not time for us to panic. From a lineup standpoint I want to stay with what has been good for us. Obviously, through the course of the game we’ll make changes. At times we’ll be smaller. At times we’ll be a little bigger. It’s definitely not a time to panic and shift things around. “In going back and looking at our first game with them, we didn’t do enough things well. If we correct a few things, it puts us in a better position.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Devin Harris started a third straight game at point guard Sunday against the Nets. According to coach Larry Drew the decision is based on Harris’ recent play and the condition of Jeff Teague’s sprained left ankle. Harris averaged 16 points, 6 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals in the previous two games, victories over the Lakers and Suns. Harris started against the Lakers as Teague missed the first game of his pro career due to injury. “He really starts the game with a lot of energy, which I really like,” Drew said. “He really pushes it and attacks the rim. So, we are going to stay with it for right now. I’m not saying it’s going to be permanent but for right now we are going to stay with it.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

A couple of former Mavericks came through town with the Hawks on Monday, and both said it would be fine with them if they ended up back in Dallas again. DeShawn Stevenson has been steadfast since he helped win the 2011 championship that the Mavericks were the organization for whom he’s best suited. “I’d love to play my last two, three seasons here,” said Stevenson, who will turn 32 on April 3. “This was the best franchise I ever played for, here and Washington. They handle things and treat people great. They do everything the right way.” Dallas Morning News

However, this group has come together and has found a variety of ways to win. They can rely on their star-studded frontcourt of Josh Smith and Al Horford, on their talented backcourt of Jeff Teague, Lou Williams and Devin Harris or on their plethora of shooters such as Kyle Korver, Anthony Morrow and DeShawn Stevenson. “Everybody said it was going to be a rebuilding year, but in the locker room we knew what kind of team we had,” Harris said. “With the shooters we brought in and with the athleticism we had, we knew how good this team could be.” HoopsWorld

“At times he’s going to play (point guard),” Drew said. “At times he’s going to play (shooting guard). At times he’s going to be a combination of both.” Harris said he does not have a preference where he plays. He has been in a similar position with the Mavericks when he played alongside Jason Terry. With the Hawks he will be sharing the court with Jeff Teague and Lou Williams, all capable of bringing the ball up court or playing the wing. “I’ve seen the way it can work and how it can work so I have a little bit of experience,” Harris said. “It doesn’t matter who brings the ball up as long as you push the ball. A lot of the three guards can do similar things. We all can space the floor. We all can get in the paint and score. We all can get to the free-throw line. If we have two guys out there at the same time who can do that, it’s going to be tough to guard.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Horford said he and Smith are “drooling” over the prospects of playing the more up-tempo offense Drew has in mind with Jeff Teague being joined by Devin Harris and Lou Williams at point guard. The key to the season will be how long it takes all the new players, of which Horford is one of just five returners, to mesh as a unit. “I know we have a lot of work to do,” Horford said. “We have so many new players. We don’t know how long it’s going to take to gel. Hopefully it’s going to take just the month of October, maybe some of November, for us to start figuring it out.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Josh Smith may not hear the groans from the Philips Arena crowd when he squares up to take a 3-pointer this season. Why? Listen to Smith tell it. “You haven’t seen the roster?” Smith turned around a reporter’s question about his long-range shooting plans on a rebuilt Hawks roster. “We’ve got Kyle Korver, Devin Harris, Louis Williams, Anthony Morrow, Anthony Tolliver. Am I missing anyone? Jeff Teague. … So there we go. That answers that question. I didn’t even say my name did I? Call me mid-range shawty.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution
