Atlanta Hawks Rank 24th in ESPN’s “Too Early” Power Rankings

ESPN ranks Atlanta Hawks as the 24th best team. Too high/low? Just right? Less than 24 hours after the Los Angeles Lakers won the 2020 NBA championship, ESPN was looking forward to next season. They published a “way-too-early” edition of their power rankings, with the Atlanta Hawks coming in at 24. “Too early” is almost […] Atlanta Hawks Rank 24th in ESPN’s “Too Early” Power Rankings - Soaring Down South - Soaring Down South - An Atlanta Hawks blog

Beyond that, the Hawks and the rest of the NBA haven’t really begun off-season activities just yet, with the NBA Draft scheduled for Nov. 18 and free agency presumably lined up to follow just a few days later. However, it is never too early to think about next season and, to that end, the good...
