The Hawks Will Exercise the 5th Year Option for Taurean Prince
Picking up the 5th year option for Prince is a no brainer for the Atlanta franchise. Meanwhile Taurean Prince looks to pick up where he left off after the 2018 All Star break. Prince averaged 19 points per game for the Atlanta Hawks during the 2nd half of last season. Prince was one of the best spot up shooters in the league, shooting 38.5% on 5.6 3 point attempts per game. He attempted a whopping 7.7 3s after the All Star break. Prince certainly appears to be a part of the Hawks’ core moving forward.
Taurean Prince was last seen in balling in the Drew League. The Drew League is a popular Pro-AM League. Prince dropped 30 points and grabbed 12 boards in his Drew Debut. Prince followed that gem, with a 26 point outburst in his next contest. He was primarily going against Los Angeles Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell.
