Atlanta Hawks take large strides toward young core

Atlanta Hawks take large strides toward young core

Just how young will the 2017-18 Hawks be? It is no secret that the 2017 summer has been one of major roster transition for the Atlanta Hawks. The departure of veterans Paul Millsap, Dwight Howard, Thabo Sefalosha and others point to an upcoming season when younger players are expected to carry a much heavier workload than the Hawks have relied on in recent seasons. Second-year players Taurean Prince and DeAndre Bembry, as well as rookie John Collins, are expected to be key cogs in Coach Mike Budenholzer’s rotation. During Budenholzer’s tenure, the Hawks have typically deployed one of...

Travis Schlenk wants Atlanta Hawks to avoid being “down 2-3 years in a row”

Travis Schlenk wants Atlanta Hawks to avoid being “down 2-3 years in a row”

Atlanta’s GM did an interesting interview. The dust has settled a bit, the projection systems are beginning to weigh in and we (kind of) know what the Atlanta Hawks will look like for 2017-2018. New general manager Travis Schlenk came in and executed an on-the-fly rebuild, sending Dwight Howard to Charlotte, letting Paul Millsap and Tim Hardaway Jr. (with help from the Knicks) go in free agency and signing short-term, reasonable contracts. What’s left for Atlanta remains up for debate, as the Hawks are largely void of high-end talent but the roster does boast considerable depth and a...

The Resurrection of Dwight Howard

The Resurrection of Dwight Howard

Dwight Howard once dominated the NBA, and in a few cases, at the expense of the Hornets. Now, with his prime years behind him, the Hornets hope Howard can revitalize at least some of that dominance with them. A few months ago I found myself perplexed by an ad plastered on the side of a passing city bus. The length of it featured an enormous set of seemingly haunted eyeballs, across which in bold font were the words: “Tom Cruise The Mummy June 9th.” Now, Best case scenario, this was a new band with one of those fun, nonsensical “blank the blank” names: Run the Jewels. Mott the...

Dwight Howard vs Kobe Bryant: Howard Claims ‘We Didn’t Beef’, The Story Was Needed Since Lakers Were Losing

Dwight Howard vs Kobe Bryant: Howard Claims ‘We Didn’t Beef’, The Story Was Needed Since Lakers Were Losing

Did Dwight Howard really ever have beef with Kobe Bryant, his former Lakers teammate, behind the scenes? Many NBA fans and critics will undoubtedly remember that Dwight Howard spent wearing a Lakers jersey – playing alongside NBA legend (and recent retiree) Kobe Bryant during the 2012-13 season. The Bryant-Howard combination was obviously not able to create the same winning streak or championship record as the Kobe-Shaq collaboration from an earlier chapter of Kobe’s NBA career – a grim reality that disappointed numerous fans who are hopeful of Kobe being able to add to his collection...

Last chance for Dwight Howard & his fit with Charlotte

* All videos and stats in the piece are via NBA.com/stats * There are so many aspects of the Dwight Howard fit with the Hornets to ponder and the more the mind wanders, the more excited (and nerve-racking) the prospects of the fit become. Howard will give Steve Clifford true rim-protection and alter the gravitational pull of opposing defenses like […]

NBA Free Agency 2017: Atlanta Hawks reportedly show interest in Willie Reed

NBA Free Agency 2017: Atlanta Hawks reportedly show interest in Willie Reed

The former Heat big man reportedly has offers around the league, including from Travis Schlenk and the Hawks. Per a report from HoopsHype’s Alex Kennedy within a larger story about him, Willie Reed has drawn some interest from the Atlanta Hawks as a low-cost replacement for Dwight Howard. Reed is an unrestricted free agent after spending one year with the Miami Heat, where he flashed a decent amount of skill as a rim protector and rebounder. Reed has bounced around a lot since becoming a professional and going undrafted in the 2011 draft, signing contracts in Spain, the Dominican...

NBA Blogtable: who’ll have bigger impact, Dwight Howard or D’Angelo Russell?

NBA Blogtable: who’ll have bigger impact, Dwight Howard or D’Angelo Russell?

NBA.com asked nine of its writers this question: “Who will get a better return next season from their recent trade: the Hornets with Dwight Howard or the Nets with D’Angelo Russell?” And for the most part, the writers chose Howard. Only two writers, John Schuhman (founder of NetsDaily) and Shaun Powell, the former Newsday columnist, were unabased Russell supporters. It was not so much that the writers dissed Russell. It was more that the writers thought Howard would have the greater immediate impact. Schuhmann looked at this coming season as well as the long-term... Russell will...

Dwight Howard “thrilled” to be in Charlotte

The Hornets introduced Howard at a press conference today and everyone left feeling fuzzy and warm inside. Dwight Howard showed up to his introductory press conference in a teal tuxedo—surely because it’s one of the Charlotte Hornets’ colors—and spoke candidly about his career up until now and where he sees himself today. “This suit was in my closet,” he said when the media asked him if he had the suit made for today. "THE 12 IS BACK." @dwighthoward pic.twitter.com/peT124oyAm— Charlotte Hornets (@hornets) June 26, 2017 “I’m thrilled to be in Charlotte,” Howard...
