Citing a “source,” the reliable Ken Berger of CBS Sports just reported, via Twitter, that free-agent center Erick Dampier has narrowed his list of teams with which he’d sign to three; the Hawks, once rumored to be a potential destination, do not appear:
Source: Erick Dampier is deciding among Miami, Houston, and Denver. #Heat can only offer $1.4m per, but have best chance at title. #NBA
The Heat, Rockets, and Nuggets were mentioned alongside the Hawks in earlier reports. Their presence here, minus the Hawks’, strongly suggests that Dampier has declined Atlanta’s offer.
