The X Factor:

Devin Harris

Devin Harris was an All-Star in 2009, but his play has pretty much gone downhill since then.  If he can come close to regaining his All-Star form, it will go a long way towards replacing Joe Johnson.


Summary:  

After another playoff flameout, the Hawks desperately needed their roster blown up.  Mission completion.  But this is in no way a rebuilding team - they still will be very competitive and will be making a playoff appearance once again this year.
