Atlanta Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk executed another offseason move, trading Solomon Hill and Miles Plumlee for Chandler Parsons. We look at the ramifications of the deal for the club’s roster.

The 2019-20 Atlanta Hawks continue to take shape, as the club has consummated another trade. This deal was a two for one swap of players, with no draft picks involved.

The Financial Ramifications

The Atlanta Hawks deal of Miles Plumlee and Solomon Hill for Chandler Parsons, was nearly an even trade salary wise. Plumlee and Hill will combine to make nearly 24.8 millions dollars next year. Both contracts will expire after the season.

Chandler parsons also is in the final year a four-year 94 million dollar contract. He is set to make a whopping 25.1 million dollars in the upcoming season.

The Outgoing Players

Production wise the Atlanta Hawks won’t miss anything. Miles Plumlee only played in 18 games for the team last season. He posted unimpressive numbers of 4.4 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.2 blocks per game.

Plumlee was acquired by the Atlanta Hawks, in the first deal that Travis Schlenk made as the team’s general manager. The deal sent Dwight Howard to the Charlotte Hornets.

Solomon Hill never played a game for the Atlanta Hawks. In fact he is not even an official member of the team, until the draft day trade for De’Andre Hunter is complete.

Taking on the bad expiring contact of Solomon Hill, was a stipulation of the Atlanta Hawks trade with the New Orleans Pelicans, to move up in this year’s draft.

The Atlanta Hawks aren’t missing much in Hill, who has averaged just 4.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists, in 44 games for the Pelicans. He’s not even a great shooter, making just 31.7 percent of his treys last season.
