Atlanta Hawks

The Atlanta Hawks are a solid 2-2, one loss coming in narrow fashion to Eastern Conference favorites Philadelphia, and the other coming on the second night of a back-to-back in Miami. Trae Young looks the part of an All-Star, and took home the season's first Player of the Week award. It's a hot start -- perhaps too...
After a big draft night, the Atlanta Hawks' offseason has been mostly quiet. There have been minor additions -- Jabari Parker, Damian Jones -- but nothing that tips the scale at first glance. The Hawks are continuing to ride with a promising young core built around Trae Young, John Collins, and Kevin Huerter.  It's clear the Hawks are...
The College Park Skyhawks held the 11th and 13th overall selections in the 2019 G-League Draft, which took place Saturday in New York. Cameron Lard, who played two seasons at Iowa State, and Rashad Shabazz, who played four seasons at Appalachian State, were the picks.  Lard spent the 2019 Summer League with Orlando in Vegas, where he averaged...
The Atlanta Hawks officially introduced Ray Spalding to the media Wednesday afternoon. According to the AJC's Chris Vivlamore, it's an Exhibit 10 contract. That gives Spalding an incentive to sign with the College Park Skyhawks if he doesn't make the 15-man roster in Atlanta.  Spalding touched on a variety of topics, including his fit, his rookie season, and...
The College Park Skyhawks' inaugural season carries special meaning. The Hawks organization acquired the Erie BayHawks in 2017, to great acclaim. Now a mere 18-minute drive south of State Farm Arena, the Skyhawks are bringing new life to the South Atlanta community. They're also adding a new dynamic to the Hawks' player development system. One can't overstate the...
On my way to Brandon Goodwin's media availability at the Atlanta Hawks' practice facility, I drove through Norcross -- a sprawling suburb on the outskirts of downtown Atlanta. It's a 20 minute drive from the Emory Sports Medicine Complex. It's also where Goodwin spent a large portion of his childhood. Goodwin and his mother moved to Norcross when...
Last week, I published an article detailing 10 bold (and not-so-bold) predictions for the Atlanta Hawks' 2019-20 season. In a natural follow-up to such a piece, which assumed good health and a complete roster, the NBA suspended John Collins 25 games for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy. He will appeal the suspension, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.  It's...
Leading up to the 2019 NBA Draft, indications were that Atlanta Hawks GM Travis Schlenk didn't want to keep all six picks. The Hawks' roster, currently saturated with young talent, doesn't need a massive influx of inexperienced prospects. Perhaps it's a signal of where the team is progressing.  Schlenk followed through, shipping the #8, #17 and #35 picks...

The 2019 NBA Summer League will take place from July 5th through the 15th, featuring all 30 teams, as well as the Croatian and Chinese national teams. The Atlanta Hawks have released their schedule for four preliminary games, which will start on the 6th.  Milwaukee vs. Atlanta, July 6th, 5 PM E.T. Atlanta vs. Minnesota, July 7th, 5:30 PM...
Before the 2018-19 college basketball season, and before Zion Williamson took a stranglehold on the national narrative, a different man sat atop my draft board: Cam Reddish. Obviously Reddish's status was short-lived, but it was still noteworthy.  In high school and AAU circuits, Reddish was a tremendous talent who often stood above the rest. He had an irking...
