The Hawks surprised everyone around NBA circles last season as they made it to the Eastern Conference Finals. They beat two of the best defensive teams in the playoffs in the Knicks and 76ers before being one healthy Trae Young ankle away from potentially playing in the NBA Finals. Speaking of Trae Young, he is the star guard for the team as he signed his rookie max extension. He did this to free up some cap space to keep valuable players like forward John Collins and center Clint Capela. Atlanta plays like today’s version of “Lob City” with a lot of emphasis on three pointing shooting. The Hawks were one of the best three-point shooting teams thanks to sharpshooters like Trae Young, Kevin Heurter, Bogdan Bogdanovic, and Danillo Gallinari. The Hawks are a young and energetic group as they not only have great shooting but big guys like Deandre Hunter, John Collins, and Clint Capela who can all defend well and jump out of the gym.
