Southeast Notes: Seraphin, Hawks, Beal

January 15 2013 at 9:41pm CDT By Alex Lee

The Bobcats were the only Southeast team in action tonight, getting torched by the Central-leading Pacers in Charlotte.  Let's take a look at what else is going on in the division on Tuesday:

  • According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst (via Twitter), Wizards big man Kevin Seraphin has changed agents, hiring Rich Paul.  Seraphin, a former first round pick, is under contract in Washington at least this year and next before the team must decide whether to extend him a qualifying offer. He was formerly represented by Bouna Ndiaye.
  • Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today offers his perspective on the job new general manager Danny Ferry has done with the Hawks.  After clearing cap space by moving Joe Johnson and Marvin Williams, much of the Hawks roster is currently playing on expiring deals.  While that can be a tough spot for a coach to be in, Larry Drew has gotten his team off to a solid start despite a recent lull.  The Hawks now have the financial flexibility to re-sign Josh Smith this summer as well as go after someone like Dwight Howard, Zillgitt writes. 
  • In a separate story for USA Today, Zillgitt concurs with much of what we heard yesterday with regard to Bradley Beal; essentially that the Wizards have no plans whatsoever of trading their rookie phenom for Rudy Gay or anyone else.  On the contrary, Zillgitt writes that Beal is settling nicely into his role as the team's closer.
