Is the Jeremy Lin buyout a good move for the Hawks?

Rick and John continued to debate the Jeremy Lin buyout and whether the Hawks will buyout Vince Carter and Dwayne Dedmon. Rick said it’s a guilty pleasure for him to have Vince Carter on the team and hopes he stays. Rick implored fans not to be mad at Jeremy Lin for leaving and going to a contender after all the help he gave to Trae Young while he was a Hawk. Rick doesn’t see Jeremy Lin get fitted for a Championship ring but maybe an Eastern Conference ring. ​

We heard from Travis Schlenk on whether Vince Carter has given John Collins any tips for the Slam Dunk contest. Rick told John that a star is about to be born through this All Star game with John Collins. Rick mentioned it’s important for John Collins to have Dominique Wilkins and Vince Carter at the All Star game with him to help get him over the hump. We heard more from Travis Schlenk on what Jeremy Lim leaving means for Trae Young as a leader and how Coach Pierce has tried to help him take the mantle and run with it.  ​
