Article Summary:

The Atlanta Hawks have reportedly agreed to sign their first free agent of this offseason, as Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports they will bring back veteran forward Solomon Hill on a one-year deal.

Hill signed with the Hawks last year on a minimum, and proved to be an invaluable veteran resource for the coaching staff in the wake of a slew of injuries on the wing Atlanta suffered throughout the 2020-21 season. Hill appeared in 71 of the Hawks’ 72 regular season games last season, including 16 starts.

Hawks coach Nate McMillan and Hill have a relationship that dates back to their days with the Indiana Pacers, when McMillan was an assistant under Frank Vogel and Hill was a young player trying to find his footing in the NBA.

Hill returning on what will presumably be a minimum contract is a nice get for Atlanta, who seems set to return much of the team from 2020-21 that notoriously went on an unexpected run to the Eastern Conference Finals, where they would lose to the Milwaukee Bucks in 6 games.
