2021-22 Atlanta Hawks Player Preview: Cam Reddish

Photo by Scott Cunningham/NBAE via After a difficult sophomore season, Reddish looks to bounce-back. Cam Reddish’s NBA career so far has been a bit of a turbulent journey. Drafted No. 10 overall in 2019 — coming to Atlanta via the Dallas Mavericks stemming from the 2018 Trae Young-Luka Doncic flip — Reddish really struggled during the opening months of his career before enjoying an upswing in form beginning at the beginning of 2020. Reddish was playing to a very decent level on both ends of the floor (more so shooting the ball offensively) before the 2019-20...

Atlanta Hawks: The potential impact of the Rockets trying to trade John Wall

2021-22 Atlanta Hawks Player Preview: Danilo Gallinari

Ahead of the 2021-22 season, Peachtree Hoops is breaking down each player in regards to what they may bring to the table. Today, we view veteran forward Danilo Gallinari. Danilo Gallinari’s first campaign with the Atlanta Hawks after signing a significant multi-year contract could be described as a tale of two seasons - a mixed start, likely affected by beginning the season in visibly poor playing shape, followed by a strong finish in which he was a key player in Atlanta’s midseason turnaround. Indeed, a cursory glance at his season splits support this. In 24 games before...

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports Could the Hawks have come away with the steal of the 2021 Draft? When Jalen Johnson stepped onto the floor in Las Vegas for Summer League play, not many — this writer included — knew what to expect.
