Rumors: Shaq weighs offer from Hawks

While the Celtics [1] reportedly have shown interest in veteran center Shaquille O’Neal [2], he also is considering a two-year offer from the Hawks [3] that starts at the mid-level exception of $5.8 million, according to AOL FanHouse [4]. The Hawks, who agreed to a max contract with Joe Johnson [5] over the weekend, are in need of a center.

“I think he wants to see how everything shakes out with all the free agents, but he’s seriously considering Atlanta’s offer,” the story quotes a source. “He wants to play two more years, and he wants it to be with a contender. He thinks he can help them become a serious one.”
