Hawks News

Ryan Kelly    F  Hawks



Ryan Kelly is reportedly ineligible to sign a guaranteed deal with the Hawks this season because he wasn't waived by Houston prior to July 1. "We anticipated [that] ... I was going to be able to [re-sign with the Hawks]," Kelly said. "I’ve got to go out and show what I can do to 28 other teams." The free agent forward was understandably frustrated, saying, "That’s the nature of the business. People tell you one thing and do other things." He could latch on somewhere as a perimeter specialist.

Taurean Prince    F  Hawks



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.

John Collins    F  Hawks



John Collins double-doubled during Sunday's summer league win over the Pelicans, registering 22 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal in just 24 minutes of play. Collins bullied his way into the paint, did a nice job on the glass, and even hit some mid-range jumpers finishing 9-of-11 from the field and 4-of-7 from the charity stripe. Currently, Mike Muscala and Miles Plumlee are the only other big men on the roster, and Plumlee likely won't be a significant part of the equation with Atlanta clearly going through a rebuild, so Collins might get some decent run his rookie year.

Ryan Kelly    F  Hawks



Ryan Kelly will play for the Hawks at Summer League. Kelly will look to impress at Summer League in order to secure a camp invite. He's a non-factor in fantasy hoops, though.

Jamal Crawford    G  Hawks



Jamal Crawford plans to sign with the Wolves, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com. The Vertical reports that it'll be a two-year, $8.9 million deal with a player option in the second season. After the Wolves spent big on Taj Gibson and are already going to give Karl-Anthony Towns 37-39 minutes, they really needed to fill out their backcourt rotation. Crawford fills a need there and should be looking at minutes in the mid 20s. The 37-year-old guard could actually make a run as the Sixth Man of the Year due to the lack of bench scorers on what should be a contending team.

Jamal Crawford    G  Hawks



Jamal Crawford is in serious talks to sign with the Timberwolves, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical. The Wolves desperately need some depth in the backcourt and are dying for a shooter, so Crawford would be a terrific fit. The 37-year-old guard has showed no signs of slowing down, playing in at least 26 minutes per game in each of his last three seasons. He still has to clear waivers before anything is official, but the Wolves may be out in front here.

Jamal Crawford    G  Hawks



According to Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com, Jamal Crawford would sign with the Cavs if they were willing to offer him the full mid-level exception. Crawford secured his buyout from the Hawks on Friday and is now an unrestricted free agent. Multiple teams, including the Lakers, Warriors, Wolves and Wizards, are interested, but Crawford's preference is to play with the Cavs. The issue is salary. Crawford wants Cleveland's full mid-level, which is $5.2 million. However, the Cavs want to use part of their exception to sign Cedi Osman to a contract. Cleveland acquired Osman on draft night back in 2015 and would like to bring him stateside for the 2017-18 season.

DeAndre Bembry    F  Hawks



DeAndre Bembry made the start at shooting guard in a loss to the Nets on Friday, scoring a team-high 22 points with four rebounds, two assists, three steals and seven turnovers. Bembry looked great with the ball in his hands and was able to carve up the Nets defense -- the turnovers were not good, of course. If the Hawks aren't going to match the massive $71 million offer on Tim Hardaway Jr., that should directly benefit Bembry's playing time and make him a near lock for the rotation. Keep an eye on him in deep leagues.

John Collins    F  Hawks



John Collins scored eight points with 11 rebounds, two steals and one turnover in 24 minutes against the Nets on Friday. It was easy to see why the Hawks liked him for his motor around the basket. Collins is a little undersized for a 6'11" guy due to a shorter wingspan, but he found himself in the right spot quite a bit in this loss. If he plays well at camp, Collins could get minutes early in the season.

Taurean Prince    F  Hawks



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.
