Sharife Cooper shows poise and patience through preseason

Photo by Adam Hagy/NBAE via The Atlanta Hawks got through the preseason with no major injuries, and a chance to build more chemistry with the main guys that will be playing this season. It was also time to see the younger players get some playing time, after seeing them for a few games in the Summer League in August. The Hawks roster is already loaded with depth, so unless an injury occurs, some of their youngest talent will spend time in College Park continuing to develop with the Skyhawks.

TheHawks turn around a late 10-point deficit behind Cooper’s heroics

Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via In the Hawks’ third preseason contest, Atlanta finally tallied a win in the standings. Without the services of Clint Capela, De’Andre Hunter, Trae Young, Delon Wright and Onyeka Okongwu, the Hawks would rally late behind the play of second round draft pick Sharife Cooper at the point. The Hawks seemed to play through the post primarily in the first half, getting John Collins and Danilo Gallinari plenty of touches down in the mid-post. This was something that was very effective last season, as the two efficient forwards often showed...
