Luke is headed back to ATL

The bad news (as we know) - Luke didn't make the Aussie Olympic squad.
The good news - he returns to ATL Sunday and will resume a workout program with Malcolm Mackey similar to last season. That is certainly music to Jacket fan's ears, as this was the start of something special for Luke and the Jackets. It all started in empty gyms, running practicing, working out.

In a coincidence (unrelated ??????), Paul Hewitt announced that the Jackets would be skipping out on a planned trip to Australia in August. Coach Hewitt cited nagging injuries with BJ Elder and Isma'il and Tarver. HHHHhhhhhhhmmmmm. Coach, we'll take you word for it.

Here is the AJC report on these events.
