Current Hawks Roster Status

The Atlanta Hawks enter the 2020-21 season with its young and very promising core still intact. With another year under their belt, the core of Trae Young, John Collins, Cam Reddish, De'Andre Hunter, and Kevin Huerter is ready to possibly challenge for a playoff spot in a wide-open Eastern Conference.

We will finally get to see Clint Capela take the floor for the Hawks following a mid-season trade last term. The 6-foot-10 big man is a more traditional center, and his presence should allow Collins to take on his preferred power forward role.

The Hawks did lose a number of key players during the offseason, including Jeff Teague and DeAndre Bembry, who both left as free agents. Dewayne Dedmon was traded to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Tony Snell, while the legendary Vince Carter called it a career in the offseason.

Atlanta made a few major additions via free agency in Bogdan Bogdanovic, Danilo Gallinari, Rajon Rondo, and Kris Dunn. The Bogdanovic signing was a big one, considering how the 6-foot-6 shooting guard was reported to have already signed with the Milwaukee Bucks before the plug was pulled on the deal at the 13th hour. Both Gallinari and Rondo were sought-after names in free agency, so their decision to join the Hawks speaks volumes of how this team has emerged as a viable destination for free agents.

The Hawks will field a starting five of Young, Reddish, Hunter, Collins, and Capela. Bogdanovic should serve as the squad's primary offensive weapon off the bench, while Huerter, Gallinari, and Rondo will all play key roles for the second unit. Rookie Onyeka Okongwu, who Atlanta selected sith overall, should also figure significantly in coach Lloyd Pierce's rotation.

atlanta hawks Team Analysis

Who Did The Hawks Recently Sign?

On November 28, 2020, the Hawks signed point guard Kris Dunn from the Chicago Bulls to a two-year deal for $10 million. Dunn's contract stipulates a Player Option for him for the 2021-22 season.

Dunn, who averaged 7.3 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 2.0 steals with the Bulls last season, comes in as an additional piece for Atlanta's backcourt.

Dunn underwent surgery on his right ankle during the offseason, which forced him to miss the first half of the 2020-21 campaign.

Who Are The Hawks Targeting In Free Agency?

The Hawks were one of the more active teams in free agency during the 2020 offseason, signing five new players. Atlanta established itself as an attractive destination for free agents, which has a lot to do with this team's young and promising core.

Atlanta's prized signing came in the form of Danilo Gallinari, who had an outstanding season with the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2019-20. The Hawks agreed to a sign-and-trade deal with the Thunder which amounted to a $61.4-million contract for Gallinari over the next three years. In exchange, Atlanta sent a 2028 second-round pick to OKC.

The Hawks also signed Bogdan Bogdanovic to a massive four-year contract worth $72 million. Interestingly, the Milwaukee Bucks appeared to have already signed Bogdanovic only for the deal to fall through at the last minute. Atlanta pounced on the mishap and got their man.

The Hawks also priced two-time NBA champ Rajon Rondo from the Los Angeles Lakers for $15 million. The former All-Star penned a two-season deal with the Hawks, with the team expecting Rondo to serve as a mentor for Trae Young.

The Hawks added further depth to its backcourt by signing Kris Dunn from the Chicago Bulls on a two-year deal worth $10 million.

Finally, the Hawks also signed 6-foot-6 forward Solomon Hill to a one-year, non-guaranteed deal worth $2.2 million.

Who Did The Hawks Most Recently Trade For?

Technically speaking, Atlanta's most recent trade deal came in the form of veteran forward Danilo Gallinari, but that was a sign-and-trade deal. As a free agent, Gallo signed a new deal with OKC first ($61.4 million for three years) before being traded to the Hawks. In exchange, Atalanta sent a conditional 2028 second-round pick in the way of the Thunder.

Over the offseason, the Hawks also struck a deal with the Detroit Pistons. Atlanta parted ways with big man Dewayne Dedmon in exchange for Tony Snell and Khyri Thomas. While Snell eventually emerged as a key part of the team's rotation for the 2020-21 season, Thomas ended up being waived a few days after the trade.

What Is The Best Hawks Roster Of All-Time?

Since being established as a franchise in 1949 (as the Tri-Cities Blackhawks), this team has only won the NBA title once. This came during the 1957-58 season when the team, then the St. Louis Hawks, defeated the mighty Boston Celtics in the Finals in six games.

Having bagged the franchise's one and only championship, it's hard to argue against the notion that this particular Hawks side represents the franchise's greatest roster of all time.

The great Bob Pettit led the charge for the Hawks that season, averaging a team-best 24.6 points per game. Playing alongside him were the likes of Cliff Hagan, Slater Martin, Ed Macauley, and Jack MacMahon. The other players on that title-winning team were Chuck Share, Jack Coleman, Win Wilfong, Med Park, Walt Davis, Frank Selvy, Red Morrison, and Worthy Patterson.

What Is The Hawks' Salary Cap?

While the Hawks are still operating over the cap this season, they are one of a few teams in the NBA that actually came close to meeting the league-mandated cap. With a total cap of $114.7 million, Atlanta went over the cap by just $5.6 million. This is actually a respectable effort from the Hawks front office considering how other teams didn't even come close to meeting the cap.

Atlanta's two offseason signings are their biggest earners for 2020-21. Danillo Galinari is set to pocket $19.5 million, while Bogdan Bogdanovic is earning $18 million. Clint Capela rounds out the top 3 with a salary of $16 million.

Interestingly, Tony Snell ($12.2 million), Rajon Rondo ($7.5 million), and De'Andre Hunter ($7.4 million) will earn more than cornerstone superstar Trae Young. Young is currently set to pocket just $6.6 million -- a figure that is expected to skyrocket once he signs an extension with the franchise.

John Collins' salary is listed at just $4.1 million this season, making him the 11th highest-paid player on the team.
