Where to now for the Hawks?

Brooks was a legit scorer, perhaps their only one who could be counted to get buckets.

Hopefully that's not how Brook's career ends. This could be tough to come back from at 35.

Damn that is bad news....wish him all the best and for him to keep playing. The way he limped off was disheartening.

Even at 35 he was still a damn good scorer at the NBL level.

I honestly thought a combo of Ball and Brooks would be above average.

If losing Brooks but the HAwks are still above the league's wage floor then I would just save the money and play Naar and Dech more (but not Glover).

Naar was a 40% 3pt shooter at St Mary's I am surprised he hasn't used it as much here.

Demetrius Conger wouldn't be a bad fit

Conger and Ball on same team, lol, Bevo got Conger the ball on every play, that ain't going to happen with this team. I’d like to see Dech backed in and see how he goes.

Hawks are 1-6. Playoffs are likely out of the question.
Hawks can save money by going with 1 import, people will still attend to see Melo.
This can help develop Naar and Dech, yes they aren't super stars but let's give them the rest of the year to show what they can do.

Terrible news. Nasty injury and really feel for the guy.
Didn't see exactly what happened, just saw him limping off after the collision. Looked horrible, completely unable to put any weight on it.

I don't understand all these people that want the hawks to simply give up after 4 weeks of the season.
"Developing Youth" doesn't work if your team is utter crap.
The publicity and sales generated by Lamelo, will be wasted if their is a net loss of fans after he leaves.
It doesn't suit Lamelo, or the Next Stars program, for him to be the starting PG on a crap team that gets thumped every game. He needs some highlights where he "leads his team to Victory."

So they're probably not going to make the finals. So what? Cairns probably won't either, and that didn't stop them pantsing the Cats. Should they give up also?
