Roundtable: Who among the off-the-radar young players are you most excited about?

Continuing our series. In the dog days of August, fresh NBA content can be sparse but Peachtree Hoops cuts through the silence for an off-season roundtable series centering on the Atlanta Hawks. Part two discusses the under-the-radar young players (i.e. not Trae Young, John Collins or Taurean Prince) brings the most excitement. Brad Rowland - Kevin Huerter. This is the easy answer and I’m tempted to say Justin Anderson, if only because I remain a big-time fan of his work.
