Moving Forward

The recent moves should provide an opportunity for two-way contract player Jaylen Adams to earn a full NBA contract, as the Atlanta Hawks backup point guard. Adams who is known for his three-point shooting, should provide even more spacing in Lloyd Pierce’s offense.

Deandre Bembry can also play backup point guard for the Atlanta Hawks. It also seems highly likely that the Hawks will seek to sign a third point guard.

Forward Alex Poythress who is also on a two-way contract should have a chance to earn a regular contract as well, with the recent opening of three roster spots. Expect to see some players on ten-day contracts auditioning for a further role with the Atlanta Hawks this season as well.

So the Atlanta Hawks continue to press on with a line up of young players, combined with veteran leaders Vince Carter, Kent Bazemore, and Dewayne Dedmon. As the season continues, the goals will be continued development and chemistry building, while also staying competitive to avoid building a losing culture.

For Atlanta Hawks fans this is certainly an exciting team to watch grow.
