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.

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.

Mike Budenholzer    C  Hawks

 

 

The Hawks have parted ways with general manager Wes Wilcox, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman. The timing of the move is interesting as the Hawks will look to bring back Paul Millsap, who is almost certainly going to waive his player option this summer. Wilcox was with the Hawks since 2012 after he worked with the Cavs.

Kent Bazemore    G/F  Hawks

 

 

Kent Bazemore said he will focus on improving his jumper and ball handling skills this offseason. Bazemore saw a slight regression during his second year in Atlanta after signing a four-year deal with them worth $70 million during the 2016 offseason, contributing averages of 11.0 points, 3.2 boards, 2.4 dimes, 1.2 steals, 1.3 triples and 1.7 turnovers per game on 40.9 percent shooting, which was only good enough for 13th round value in standard 9-cat leagues. He won't be worth much more than a last-round flier in next year's drafts.

Paul Millsap    F  Hawks

 

 

Millsap is expected to opt out of his $21.5 million player option for the 2017-18 season and become an unrestricted free agent, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "Eventually I probably will opt out, yes", Millsap said. "But I want to be here. I think talks have been pretty good, so we'll see what happens."
