Atlanta Hawks

Eastern Southeast

Kaminsky signed a one year deal with the Hawks and will join the rotation at the 4 and 5 positions according to Wojnarowski. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Spending his last three years with the Suns, Kaminsky was a fairly productive role player when on the floor, averaging 8 points, 4 rebounds and nearly 2 assists per game. His problem has been staying healthy, as he only managed 9 games last season and 86 in the previous two seasons. However since Atlanta already has Clint Capela and Onyeka Okongwu on the roster, they’re not depending on him for anything more than 15-20 minutes per game, if that.

Atlanta is trading Kevin Huerter to the Sacramento Kings for Justin Holiday, Mo Harkless and a future first round pick. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Huerter was a first-round pick by the Hawks in the 2018 NBA Draft and played his first four seasons in Atlanta. With the Hawks making some offseason additions to the back court, Huerter will get a fresh start in Sacramento where he will have a chance to potentially start or play a big role off the bench. He has shot at least 38 percent from deep in three of his first four seasons in the league.

Free agent Aaron Holiday has agreed to a one-year deal with the Atlanta Hawks. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Holiday figures to backup Trae Young and Dejounte Murray in the Hawks back court. He does not offer too much fantasy appeal or upside.

Free-agent Kevin Knox has agreed to a two-year, $6 million deal with the Detroit Pistons, via lead NBA Insider for The Athletic, Shams Charania. (Source: Shams Charania via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Knox became a free agent this week after the Atlanta Hawks chose not to extend a qualifying offer to the forward before the league deadline. He now joins the Pistons on a 2-year deal where he’ll provide additional depth in the frontcourt. Knox played in 30 games last season where he averaged 3.1 points, 1.5 rebounds, and 7.4 minutes per game for the Knicks and Hawks.

Danilo Gallinari has been traded to the San Antonio Spurs along with three future first-round picks, and a pick swap to send Dejounte Murray to Atlanta. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gallo was on the wrong end of a blockbuster deal in order to match Murray's salary. He was a solid contributor during his Atlanta tenure, but it is clear he is on the decline. It remains to be seen whether he will play out the last year of his contract with San Antonio or if a buy-out is in store.

According to Marc Stein, Hawks forward John Collins is "likely" to be traded this offseason. (Source: Marc Stein)

Fantasy Impact: After requesting a trade for the second consecutive season, talks have finally formulated and the Hawks seem "likely" to trade John Collins this offseason. Rumors have speculated that Atlanta has offered Collins as well as their first-round pick for the 4th overall selection in the draft from the Kings in order to select Jaden Ivey of Purdue. Collins will likely continue to be one of the hottest names on the market after a season that saw him average 16.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game.

Atlanta Hawks guard Bogdan Bogdanovic underwent surgery to address inflammation with his patella tendon this off-season. (Source: Marc Spears on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bogdanovic had to deal with knee issues for a lot of last season, and he missed time because of it. He got surgery to address it, and while the timeline for his return isn't exactly defined, he is expected to be ready to go for the start of the season. The sharpshooter is an important part of Atlanta's rotation, so having him back fully healthy would be beneficial to the team.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson was dealing with some knee injuries and discomfort during the season, but he has had surgery to try to address the issue. His exact timeline for recovery is not yet clear, but he is expected to be good to go for the team's training camp. If he can avoid injuries this year, he could be an intriguing role player for Atlanta this season.

Clint Capela is considered questionable for Tuesday's Game 5 against Miami as reported by the Miami Herald's Anthony Chiang. (Source: Anthony Chiang on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Clint Capela is still dealing with some soreness in his hyperextended right knee but will more than likely play as the team monitors the center heading into gamely Tuesday. Keep an eye on the situation closer to tipoff if you have him in your DFS lineups and make sure he is a go.

Lou Williams (back) is unavailable to play in Sunday's contest against the Miami Heat. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Sunday will mark the eighth-straight game that Williams has missed due to his low-back discomfort, and there doesn't seem to be a return in sight. The Hawks' time in the playoffs may be running out, so a return for the veteran is looking less likely by the game.

Trae Young scored 35 points on 12-for-23 shooting against the Heat. He made just 3-for-11 from downtown while adding eight assists, two rebounds, and a steal in 36 minutes.

Fantasy Impact: The Hawks are currently slotted to play in the 9 vs. 10 play-in game against the Hornets. Young should be able to put up another big game in the season finale against the Rockets to close out the regular season and give the Hawks a chance to improve their playoff seeding.

De'Andre Hunter scored 20 points (8-17 FG, 0-2 3PT, 4-4 FT) to go along with six rebounds, two assists and one block on Tuesday against the Raptors.

Fantasy Impact: Hunter has now scored at least 15 points in three of his last four games. He was one of five Hawks players to score in double figures against Toronto.

Onyeka Okongwu totaled 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in the Hawks’ 122-101 loss to the Pistons on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Okongwu scored 11.0 points in the Hawks' loss to the Pistons putting together another strong performance given his limited time on the floor. He is a strong point-per-minute fantasy asset, however, given his limited role he is best reserved for a single-game contest or small slates.

Delon Wright tallied 18 points (7-11 FG, 4-6 3PT), six assists, and three rebounds in 32 minutes of Atlanta's 120-105 win over Memphis on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: The guard out of Utah saw plenty of offensive opportunity with Trae Young out, and he took full advantage of it. However, with Young's injury not believed to be serious, don't expect Wright to continue to put up numbers like this.

Fantasy Impact: Dieng missed Thursday's game against the Bulls because of this personal reason, which has yet to be specified. Assuming he plays, look for him to remain in his very limited role, buried on the depth chart. He is a fringe streaming option at best.
