Atlanta Hawks 2017-2018 player preview: Mike Muscala

Atlanta Hawks 2017-2018 player preview: Mike Muscala

The fan favorite returns on a new contract and with a big opportunity to increase his value. Mike Muscala played a career high 1,237 minutes during the 2016-17 season but that number might look quite small next to the number of minutes he could play this season for the Atlanta Hawks. Roster decisions the last two summer have resulted in the respective exits of veteran big men Al Horford, Dwight Howard and Paul Millsap who collectively have started more than 2,000 games, played almost 80,000 minutes and made a combined 16 all-star appearances in their careers. The centers and power forwards...

Atlanta Hawks center Miles Plumlee reportedly charged with marijuana possession in August

Atlanta Hawks center Miles Plumlee reportedly charged with marijuana possession in August

Not ideal. Miles Plumlee has been largely anonymous since landing with the Atlanta Hawks in a trade that sent Dwight Howard to the Charlotte Hornets. Aside from recovery from what the Hornets termed as an “arthroscopic debridement on his right knee,” it has seemingly been business as usual. However, a report from veteran NBA reporter Peter Vecsey (on his Patreon page) suggests Plumlee was charged with “fifth degree” possession of marijuana in late August. (h/t Dan Feldman of NBC’s ProBasketballTalk) Plumlee was then reportedly released on what Vecsey describes as $100 bail and...

Marco Belinelli brings more than shooting to Atlanta Hawks

Marco Belinelli brings more than shooting to Atlanta Hawks

Let’s take a look at the broad range of impacts Belinelli will have on the 2017/18 Hawks. During an off-season of significant roster turnover, perhaps the biggest move the Atlanta Hawks made was the divesting of center Dwight Howard in a trade to the Charlotte Hornets. Widely viewed as an “unloading” of Howard and the $47 million remaining on his contract to be paid out over the next two seasons, the Hawks acquired two veteran players, center Miles Plumlee and wing Marco Belinelli. The trade also included the Hawks swapping their 31st pick in the 2017 NBA draft for the 41st pick which...

They traded the awful contract of Miles Plumbee away and managed to get Dwight Howard in return. It’s no secret that Dwight has been slowed by injuries and age, but let’s look and see […]
