Hawks News

Dewayne Dedmon    F/C  Hawks



The Hawks announced the signings of Dewayne Dedmon and Ersan Ilyasova. According to Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Dedmon and Mike Muscala "figure to get the bulk of the minutes at center in 2017-18." Dedmon said he's excited about coach Mike Budenholzer and added that he's feeling confident because the system is similar to San Antonio's. He averaged 5.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 0.8 blocks in 17.5 minutes per game last season, and should see a nice boost in fantasy value with a larger role on his new team.

Nicolas Brussino    F  Hawks



Brussino was claimed off waivers by the Hawks on Saturday, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Nicolas Brussino    F  Hawks



The Hawks have claimed Nicolas Brussino off waivers. The Mavs didn't bring him back, but the Hawks will likely be giving him a chance to make the team. Brussino did play well in Las Vegas Summer League and the Hawks do need another forward on their roster. He still may not be in the rotation.

John Collins    F  Hawks



Hawks assistant coach Charles Lee said he's "very excited about what John Collins can bring for us." "It’s hard to get both offensive skill-set and athleticism," Lee said. "I think we got a really good one. As long as he can stay focused and stay humble, he’ll have a very bright future." According to Synergy Sports, Collins converted on 29-of-34 pick-and-roll opportunities at Wake Forest last season and shot 91-for-173 in post-up situations. He carried that momentum into Vegas where he put up averages of 15.4 points, 9.2 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 0.8 steals in just under 23 minutes per game, earning a spot on the All-NBA Summer League First Team. The Hawks are rebuilding and don't have the greatest depth up front, so Collins has a great opportunity to help fantasy owners right away.

John Collins    F  Hawks



John Collins said his main goal during Las Vegas Summer League was to prove to everyone he should have gone higher on draft day. "I wanted to prove that I should have went higher," said Collins. "Not to say that I’m not happy with the spot I’ve fallen. I’ve fallen to great spot... but I want to prove to everybody that I should have went higher. I’ve been overlooked most of my career. So I’m kind of happy, because it gives me that same energy, that same fear and drive." Collins turned some heads with his play at Summer League, so he's a guy we'll be watching very closely over the course of training camp and preseason.

John Collins    F  Hawks



John Collins scored seven points in 15 minutes against the Rockets on Friday, adding five rebounds, one assist and two turnovers. That's a wrap for arguably the most impressive rookie big man in Summer League. Collins did get limited minutes because there was nothing left for him to prove, but he still managed yet another dunk and had a terrific and-one play -- he also almost put Zhou Qi on a poster (video in link below). Due to how Paul Millsap said the Hawks never made a serious offer to him, the Hawks likely drafted Collins with hopes he would be their four man of the future. So far, so good.

Diamond Stone    C  Hawks



Diamond Stone scored 12 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover against the Rockets on Friday. It was his best game and he took it to Zhou Qi on the low block. Stone is only going to be asked to play the five spot for the Hawks, and Atlanta may have the worst group of centers in the NBA. In other words, a strong camp from Stone could lead to minutes.

Jul 14 - 5:58 PM

DeAndre Bembry    F  Hawks



Taurean Prince, DeAndre Bembry and Tyler Dorsey will not play Friday against the Rockets. Get read for a lot of rest today. Every team playing on Friday will have their last game in the consolation bracket. As for Bembry, his time in Vegas has been a success and his improved ball handling and perimeter defense should help him get minutes on the wing. Keep an eye on him in deeper leagues.
