The Atlanta Hawks are 15-25 since Al Horford went down with a pectoral injury the day after Christmas. Elton Brand, Pero Antic and Gustavo Ayon have done their best to fill in for the former all-star center but they simply haven’t been able to fill the gap.
The two Hawks who have been great this season are the relatively underpaid Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll. The two have combined for 17 ‘wins produced’ as per Box Score Geeks. At a combined salary of around $9 million the front office has gotten more than they expected from their two starting wings.
Fortunately for Atlanta fans both guys are under contract for next year at less than $9 million total. If Al Horford comes back healthy 2015 should be a really nice season for the Atlanta Hawks.
