Taurean Prince scored 17 points during Sunday's exhibition game against the Pelicans, adding three 3-pointers, two boards, two assists, one block and five turnovers in 27 minutes. There's a good chance Prince will be starting for the rebuilding Hawks next season, so he could be a nice source of steals and triples in fantasy hoops. During the final 15 games of the 2016-17 season, Prince put in averages of 10.7 points, 1.0 triple, 1.5 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.9 blocks in 29.8 minutes per contest.

Taurean Prince scored 14 points with five rebounds, one assist and five turnovers against the Nets on Friday. After he forced his way into minutes late last season, Prince absolutely will not have to this time around. He's a good bet to start at either forward spot and shouldn't have much of a problem getting minutes in the upper 20s out of the gate. Considering how he racked up the defensive stats late in the year, Prince is a nice target in the middle rounds of most fantasy drafts.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said the development of Taurean Prince and Dennis Schroder will be one of his three priorities this summer. His other two priorities are improving the offense and re-signing Tim Hardaway Jr. and Paul Millsap. Prince showed fantasy owners a glimpse of his upside after the All-Star break, averaging 8.4 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.7 blocks and 0.8 triples in 24.2 minutes per game in that span. The money stats are the key to his value (steals, blocks and triples), and with Thabo Sefolosha hitting free agency this summer, Prince has to like to his chances of opening the 2017-18 season as the starting small forward. He could be a sleeper in fantasy leagues and we'll get a long look at him during the summer league.

Taurean Prince will play in Summer League. Even with the Hawks somewhat healthy, Prince ranked fourth on the team for playoff minutes. Prince was still assisted on 79.3 percent of his buckets in the playoffs, so he still needs to work on getting his own shot. He'll get the chance to increase his scoring arsenal in July and could add to his fantasy ceiling. If Paul Millsap leaves, Prince will be a fantasy sleeper.

Coach Mike Budenholzer said he is sticking with the same starting lineup of Dennis Schroder, Tim Hardaway Jr., Taurean Prince, Paul Millsap and Dwight Howard for Game 3 on Saturday. The starters have been really bad in this series, turning in a -35.3 net rating in their 28 minutes together. The next most-used lineup is just at eight minutes in the two games, so the Hawks still have a lot of adjustments to make. Plus, Dwight Howard has been disappointing in this series.

Dennis Schroder, Taurean Prince, Tim Hardaway Jr., Paul Millsap and Dwight Howard are starting again on Wednesday for Game 2 against the Wizards. This starting lineup was destroyed in Game 1, turning in a woeful -52.4 net rating in their 12 minutes together. This lineup wasn't used in the fourth quarter, so another bad game could cause a change for Game 3.

Taurean Prince scored 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting during Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Wizards, adding two 3-pointers, six rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 32 minutes. Prince was quiet for most of the game, but then he caught fire during the fourth quarter of action, scoring 10 of his 14 points on 4-of-5 shooting. With Prince scoring 14 points in his postseason debut, he became the first Hawks' rookie to score at least 10 points in his playoffs debut since Al Horford.

Coach Mike Budenholzer plans to start Taurean Prince and Tim Hardaway Jr. against the Wizards. It's a testament to how well Prince has played lately. That suggests Kent Bazemore will stick in the second unit, which makes some sense to add another ball-handler next to either Malcolm Delaney and/or Jose Calderon. Prince is likely looking at minutes in the 20s, but his usage likely won't be very high with Paul Millsap healthy.

Taurean Prince started on Tuesday but hit 4-of-7 shots for just eight points, one rebound, one assist and one steal in 23 minutes. Despite tonight's disappointing line, Prince is young enough that he could be the Hawks' featured player in Wednesday's finale at Indy. There's also a chance he could sit with the Hawks locking up the No. 5 seed tonight, but of all the regulars, TP looks like the best bet for heavy minutes.
