Article Summary:

After a surprising run to the Eastern Conference finals last season, the Atlanta Hawks spent the offseason trying to keep the team that got them there intact. They re-signed forward John Collins, gave superstar Trae Young the rightfully deserved rookie contract extension and now they’ve given center Clint Capela a two-year contract extension worth $46 million that will carry him through the 2024-25 season, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Although his numbers fell in the postseason, he still played a significant role in helping the Hawks to the ECF.

His size came in handy against a defensively stout Knicks team, and although he was unable to adequately contain Joel Embiid when Atlanta matched up against the Philadelphia 76ers, his presence in the paint deterred other Sixers players from coming into the lane. Capela performed well against the eventual champion Milwaukee Bucks, but the Hawks as a team were simply outmatched against a well-oiled Bucks team, especially after Young was sidelined for two games of that series.
