Mike Budenholzer    C  Hawks



The Hawks have reportedly picked Warriors' assistant GM Travis Schlenk to become their new general manager. Schlenk initially started as an assistant coach and video scout for the Dubs back in 2004, and over that time he has risen through the ranks all the way to assistant GM and VP of basketball operations with the Warriors. He's well respected around the league and has learned under the tutelage of the 2014-15 Executive of the Year Bob Myers, so this is a great get for Atlanta.

Paul Millsap    F  Hawks



According to The Vertical, Paul Millsap has opted out of his $21.4 million contract for the 2017-18 season and will become a free agent. The 32-year-old All-Star is arguably the top power forward available this summer and should be able to command a max deal. Millsap has said that he would like to re-sign with Atlanta and the Hawks have made it clear that bringing him back is their top priority, but he could potentially walk with the Hawks getting nothing in return (just like Al Horford did last summer). Millsap averaged 18.1 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.9 blocks and 1.1 triples on 44.2 percent shooting this season, but he had trouble staying healthy and appeared in just 69 games.

DeAndre Bembry    F  Hawks



DeAndre Bembry said perimeter shooting will be a focus of his this offseason. "Get better shooting, for sure. I made one 3-pointer this season," Bembry said. "For sure, I need to get better at that. I feel like that’s the biggest improvement I need. Other than that, I’m a pretty decent player. Definitely working on my shooting this summer." Bembry will have a chance to work on his game at the summer league, and with Thabo Sefolosha and Tim Hardaway Jr. hitting free agency, maybe he can earn a larger role in 2017-18. Bembry averaged just 2.7 points, 1.6 boards and 0.8 assists in 9.8 minutes through 38 appearances, but he did turn some heads on the defensive end.

Dwight Howard    C  Hawks



Dwight Howard was pulled over for speeding in the early morning hours of April 28, the same day as Atlanta's Game 6 loss to the Wizards. A police report states that Howard was pulled over for speeding, traveling at 95 mph in a 65 mph zone. Police found that Howard was driving with a suspended registration and without insurance. A Hawks spokesman declined to comment on the incident. Howard, who has intimated he was unhappy with his role in the offense this season, had just nine points and seven rebounds in the series-ending Game 6 loss to Washington.

Jose Calderon    G  Hawks



Jose Calderon said he has no plans to retire and would like to continue playing in the NBA. Calderon ended up playing more minutes than expected for the Hawks in the 2017 postseason, averaging 4.3 points 2.2 assists in 12.5 minutes. "I think I showed out there that I can play a little bit. I think I can be helpful for a lot of teams. We’ll see where is the next chapter," said Calderon. A respected veteran and locker room leader, Calderon will likely land a one-year deal this summer, but he should be avoided in nearly all fantasy formats next season.

Dennis Schroder    G  Hawks



Dennis Schroder said he believes the Hawks need to do a better job incorporating Dwight Howard into the team's offense next season. Schroder was a stud in the postseason, averaging 24.7 points and 7.7 assists (versus just 1.6 assists) in Atlanta's six-game series against Washington. However, Howard averaged just 8.0 points. "It’s different when Dwight is on the floor. It was different with Al Horford," said Schroder. "We have to switch up the system a little bit. We have to get reps. We have to be together for a while... On the defensive end, he has to show more effort, I have to show more effort. On the offensive end, the same thing."

Mike Budenholzer    C  Hawks



Hawks owner Tony Ressler confirmed to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Mike Budenholzer will relinquish his duties as team president but will remain as the team's head coach. It was also confirmed that Wes Wilcox is out as GM but will stay with the organization as a special advisor to ownership. The search for a new general manager will begin soon.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer will relinquish president's duties, and general manager Wes Wilcox will remain in a high-ranking front office role, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. In management restructuring, the Hawks will start their search for a new head of basketball operations, and Budenholzer will still have a strong voice in player personnel decisions.

Mike Budenholzer    C  Hawks



Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer might be replaced as team president, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. The Hawks are in a "period of evaluation," according to a press release, which reportedly includes the removal of GM Wes Wilcox. There's a chance that Wilcox will stay with the organization in a different capacity, and Budenholzer is expected to remain the team's head coach regardless of any other changes.
