Paul Millsap    F  Hawks



Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk hinted that he may not offer Paul Millsap a max contract this summer. "We are going to make Paul our best offer," Schlenk said. "Will he have better offers? I don’t know. Do we want to keep Paul? Sure." Interesting. Schlenk recently said one of his top priorities is bringing back Millsap, but he admitted that he might get "better offers than we can make him." Millsap is entering his age-33 season, so it's understandable why the Hawks may not want to sign him to a max deal that could be as much as $205 million over five years. Opposing teams can offer Millsap four-year deals worth up to $152 million, so it will be interesting to see what the market looks like for the All-Star PF.

Dwight Howard    C  Hawks



Dwight Howard said he wants to expand his range to try and lengthen his career. "I’ve been working on my 3s," Howard said. "Really trying to add some range to my game. Which is gonna be weird for people to see, I guess, they’re used to seeing me in the paint, battling. But in order for me to play longer, I have to expand my game." Over the past five seasons, Howard has connected on just 24.3 percent of his jump shots, and through 13 years of NBA experience, he's gone just 5-of-56 from beyond the arc; so D12 becoming a threat from distance seems unrealistic.

Paul Millsap    F  Hawks



General manager Travis Schlenk said one of his top priorities is bringing back Paul Millsap. This is about as obvious as it gets. Millsap is going to become an unrestricted free agent and should have plenty of suitors. He is 32 years old, so the Hawks may not want to offer him a five-year deal because the back end of that likely will be a tough pill to swallow.

General manager Travis Schlenk said the Hawks could look to move up from the 19th pick in the draft. He also said the team is looking at nine players to take at No. 19. While the Hawks only have one first-round pick this year, they do have two first-round picks for each of the next two drafts. Basically, this isn't really news and it's standard for any front office.

Dwight Howard    C  Hawks



New general manager Travis Schlenk said Dwight Howard still has a place with the Hawks. "There is a reason Atlanta was one of the top five defenses in the league," Schlenk said. "He was a big part of that." Howard still has two years left on his deal, but he is going to turn 32 during the early part of next season. Plus, Dwight was on the bench quite a bit after the Ersan Ilyasova trade, so being another year older could hurt his minutes even more. With so much hard contact on Dwight and plenty of back injuries, it'll be interesting to see how he holds up through the rest of this contract.

Dennis Schroder    G  Hawks



Dennis Schroder said he will play for Germany at Eurobasket this summer. "I will definitely play this summer. Listening to the German anthem is a great feeling. I did not hear it for a long time and it is time to listen to it again," Schroder said. Schroder had an up-and-down regular season as the Hawks starting point guard in 2016-17, but stepped up in the postseason, averaging 24.7 points, 7.7 assists and 2.8 treys, while shooting 45.5 percent from the floor and 42.5 percent from downtown.

Ersan Ilyasova    F  Hawks



Jessica Camerato of CSN Philly doesn't expect the 76ers to pursue free agent Ersan Ilyasova this summer. Ilyasova was a great fit in Philly before his trade to Atlanta, but one of the reasons the 76ers moved on is because he's going to be looking for a longer-term contract this offseason than the 76ers were interested in offering. Ilyasova turned 30 this month and finished the season with averages of 13.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.7 3-pointers on 43.2 percent shooting. Expect him to draw a lot of interest from contenders this summer.

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



Milsap opted out of his $21.4 million contract for next season Monday and will become an unrestricted free agent, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

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.
