Fantasy tip
Al Harrington
The winner of this year's Player Whose Off-Season Trade Makes Him a Fantasy Stud Award is ... Al Harrington!

Antoine Walker and Al Harrington have a lot at stake. Walker wants to put up big numbers in his contract year. Harrington had six good seasons in Indiana, but now he's a full-time starter. More minutes and more touches give him a chance to prove he's got game.

The two potential All-Stars offer reason for hope in the A.T.L., but not enough to think about postseason play.

Roster analysis
The starters: Plenty of shooters. No rebounders. The shooters had better stay hot.
Pos. Player Comment Grade*
PF Antoine Walker And you thought he was a chucker in Boston and Dallas 7
SF Al Harrington Sixth Man runner-up could make All-Star as a starter 7
C Jason Collier Shaq must be shaking in his sneakers 5
SG Josh Childress Needs time to grow his game ... but not his 'fro 5
PG Kenny Anderson There was a time he was a star ... just not now 6
BENCH Boris Diaw can score. Vet guards Tony Delk and Jon Barry will contribute. But high schooler Josh Smith could be sensational. Believe it. 4
