Why Resigning Marvin Williams Should Not Be a Priority.

ATLANTA - MAY 11:  Marvin Williams #24 of the Atlanta Hawks drives into Wally Szczerbiak #10 of the Cleveland Cavaliers during Game Four of the Eastern Conference Semifinals during the 2009 NBA Playoffs at Philips Arena on May 11, 2009 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Marvin Williams at times last year was great. I can vividly recall the game when he dropped 30 on the Wizards (not a huge accomplishment), but it's something.

But I also vividly recall when he was cold, and constantly injured at the end of the season.

The Hawks have Mo Evans who had a great record when he started and is by far a better defender.

Atlanta should go out and make a bid for one of Boston's two big boys or maybe a Big Baby? Leon Powe and Glenn Davis would be a great addition to the team; they would give another low-post presence with Al Horford and Pachulia and could become the starter at power forward.

While it is unlikely to get "Big Baby" because he is a restricted free agent and Boston seems to have every intention of matching any offer, I think Powe could be lured in. It would be an upgrade over Marvin.

I say let him walk.
