Ersan Ilyasova    F  Hawks

 

 

Ersan Ilyasova and the 76ers have agreed to a one-year, $6.0 million deal, according to Shams Charania. Mike Muscala is expected to have an expanded role this year and much of that should come at center, where Atlanta would otherwise rely on Dewayne Dedmon and Miles Plumlee. Either way, Ilyasova isn't a high-upside fantasy target after averaging 10.4 points, 1.2 triples and 5.8 rebounds with Atlanta last year. His arrival also allows John Collins to develop slower, but expect him to overtake Ersan as the season progresses.

John Collins    F  Hawks

 

 

John Collins racked up the highlights against the Pelicans on Wednesday, scoring 25 points with nine rebounds, one steal, one block, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 25 minutes. He may have turned in the best dunk of Las Vegas Summer League when he stuffed it over Cheick Diallo (video in link below). Collins is destroying defenders as a roll man and he's had some nice shooting touch, as well. His defense isn't quite up to par yet, but he's been in the right place most of the time. Collins looks like he'll be in the rotation and it wouldn't be a total shock to see him start. He's been one of the best players in Vegas.

Dorsey won't play during Wednesday's summer league matchup against the Pelicans due to a sprained right ankle, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Thabo Sefolosha    G/F  Hawks

 

 

Unrestricted free agent Thabo Sefolosha wrote in a blog post that he wants to have a real role with his next team. The Hawks renounced their rights to Sefolosha earlier this summer, making him an unrestricted free agent, but they could still orchestrate a potential sign-and-trade deal for him to get him a better contract. Sefolosha said that he's already received some offers, so now it's about determining what is best for him and his family.

Dewayne Dedmon    F/C  Hawks

 

 

Dewayne Dedmon has agreed to a deal with the Atlanta Hawks according to Shams Charania of The Vertical. Sam Amick of USA Today adds that the deal is expected to be for two years and $14 million with a player option on the second season. Atlanta desperately needed frontcourt depth, so this is a good landing spot for Dedmon and he should be considered the favorite to start on opening night. The 27-year-old big man averaged 5.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 0.8 blocks in 17.5 minutes per game last season, so he should be relevant in standard fantasy leagues with an expanded role.

Alpha Kaba    C  Hawks

 

 

Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk said he believes second-round pick Alpha Kaba will play overseas next season. Kaba was the 60th overall pick in the 2017 draft. "I think Alpha will go back to Mega Leks or another team in Europe. I haven’t really talked to his agent but I expect he’ll go back there," said Schlenk. Kaba can be ignored in all fantasy leagues.

DeAndre Bembry    F  Hawks

 

 

DeAndre Bembry kept the good times rolling during Monday's easy Summer League win over the Bulls, registering 17 points, two 3-pointers, three boards, four assists and one steal in 21 minutes. Bembry has been crushing it for the Hawks at Summer League, pumping out averages of 18.0 points, 4.3 boards, 4.0 assists and 2.3 steals per game on 56.4 percent shooting, so he's making a solid case for meaningful minutes next season. Obviously, he'll need to further establish himself over the course of training camp and preseason, but with Tim Hardaway Jr. no longer a part of the equation, the opportunity is there for Bembry.

John Collins    F  Hawks

 

 

John Collins posted his second straight double-double during Monday's exhibition win over Chicago, racking up 15 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one turnover in 25 minutes. Collins has looked like a man amongst boys at Summer League, posting averages of 15.0 points and 10.8 rebounds per game on 60.0 percent shooting. He typically doesn't send away many shots, and that could be a hindrance to his fantasy value, but with the lack of depth in Atlanta's frontcourt he could carve out some serious minutes his rookie season; maybe even start.
