The Atlanta Hawks front line rotation is going to be a tough load to handle in the Eastern Conference this coming season.
Al Horford, Paul Milsap and Elton Brand will hold down the paint, while Mike Scott (non-guaranteed contract) and draft picks Lucas Nogueira and Mike Muscala (both still unsigned) are part of the equation too.
