Article Summary:

The NBA offseason has winded down as we head towards training camp for the 2021-22 season. Kevin Pelton of ESPN gave the Atlanta Hawks an “A” grade for their moves this offseason, highlighting the retaining of John Collins and Nate McMillan, among other moves:

Although it was a relatively quiet offseason for the Hawks, I liked the way they tweaked their bench after last season’s unexpected run to the Eastern Conference finals. Atlanta swapped little-used Kris Dunn and Bruno Fernando for top-tier backup point guard Delon Wright and added Gorgui Dieng on a one-year, $4 million deal to fill in at backup center while Onyeka Okongwu recovers from shoulder surgery. Add in a long-term contract for coach Nate McMillan, removing his interim tag, and Atlanta wisely rewarded key contributors to the playoff run.
