Those are all his tweets.
Are there any Atlanta beat writers that have been passing along info?
I hear ya. And, personally, I greatly prefer your gut feeling over some sportswriter from Hoopsworld who goes to "all parties" and asks them.
As for the Atlanta writers, yeah, they've already printed what you're asking about -- and I've quoted them on this board. It's just that no one seems to want to believe them.
My mother told me, she said, "Elwood, to make it in this world you either have to be oh, so clever or oh, so pleasant." Well, for years I was clever; I recommend pleasant.

Also you can sign an trade but your limited to non tax paying teams, and teams that can afford him wont give you anything. Sign and trades don't give that 5th year anymore either.
Not necessarily looking for "win now" pieces; MKG is an impact talent that isn't necessarily a win now piece. Not saying I expect to land an MKG, but if Smoove is on the table, then I expect someone to bring quality pieces to the table over late lottos and a nice 6th man prospect. If LAL can find that for Gasol and are willing to send those pieces back to us, then fine, I have no problem sending Smoove to LAL. If not, then sorry - the Hawks don't exist to be someone else's Developmental Squad.

The Nets have emough of guys past 30 with monster contracts. If the Lakers can get them to take on Pau...they sure can't attach Artest and the Nets won't be tossing in a Rd 1. The Bobs might be okay with this, but it's weak for ATL and if the Nets bail...and they should....then how are the Lakers dumping all the salary so they can grab all the good stuff?
CENSORED... No comment.
