This would be huge. I'd be pissed at a one year offer though. 2years of Gilbert or championship?
huge??? it would be coo but hardly huge, he's not even gonna play 25 minutes a game (like he did in orlando where he averaged 8 points) he's out there for hustle,he's a decent defender at best and isn't even a knock down 3 point shooter,again decent at best from the 3.

Hawks close to adding frontcourt depth in Josh Powell
The Atlanta Hawks are close to addressing their need for a backup big man by acquiring Los Angeles Lakers reserve forward Josh Powell on a one-year deal expected to be for the veteran minimum $992,680, according to league sources. Powell is expected to pick the Hawks over Cleveland, Chicago and New Jersey in the next couple of days.

The 27-year-old Powell has played the last two seasons for the Lakers after signing with them in 2007. Injuries to starting center Andrew Bynum created time for Powell as a backup forward when Pau Gasol had to move into the middle; Powell appeared in 60 and 63 regular season games the last two years, though his minutes dropped from 11.7 per game in 2008-09 to 9.2 last season. He played in 13 playoff games this past season, including an appearance in Game 6 of the Finals against the Celtics.

Powell was well-liked among his Lakers teammates and Coach Phil Jackson, who respected the 6-9 forward's work ethic in practice and his positive demeanor on the bench. But Powell is seeking an opportunity for more playing time, and is likely to get a little more run in Atlanta behind Josh Smith.

The Hawks have been looking for a veteran big to replace Joe Smith, who fell out of favor with former Coach Mike Woodson's staff last season. They explored centers like Brad Miller, who wound up signing with the Rockets, and looked into free agent Shaquille O'Neal, but weren't willing to promise him the money or minutes he was seeking.

Powell has also played for the Mavericks, who signed him out of the NBA Developmental League in 2005, along with the Pacers, Warriors and Clippers.

no hate, but what is ur bench even gonna look like? lose farmar and shannon, pick up blake, still got odom, then who? luke walton and more minutes for mbenga?

i don't see why people r hating on the heat's bench without realistically comparing it to other benches, like we're supposed to have all stars as a 10th man or something .

Like I said, "huge".

We don't need big minutes from Barnes. His contribution will be felt on the defensive end and on the boards. He can finish on the break and has the ability to knock down wide a.ss open 3's. He also has great size, he's athletic, and he's a tough guy with experience. 1.7 for Barnes is a steal for a team who needs solid depth. He immediately becomes the 7th or 8th man in the rotation. 82 games and the playoffs are a lot of games and having young legs coming off the bench is important.

How is this not huge again?

off the top of my head..:

PG:Blake /Sasha
SG: Sasha / Barnes
SF: Barnes / Luke Walton
PF: Odom / Powell

Center: Gasol or Bynum (Gasol is technically his backup.... but Gasol is seen at Center with Bynum out and Odom comes in at PF.

So yeah still a solid bench and role players.
