Article Summary:

After De’Andre Hunter’s rookie season, many questioned the Atlanta Hawks’ decision to give up substantial capital to move up in the 2019 NBA Draft for the Virginia forward.

In his second year, Hunter showed just how valuable he can be when he featured as the Hawks “x-factor” in the first third of the season. Unfortunately for Hunter and the Hawks, he has struggled with health, and a procedure to remove damaged tissue from his meniscus kept Hunter out for the rest of the 2020-21 regular season. In the 23 games Hunter played in 2020-21, he showed some very interesting shot creation and dribble penetration talent, along with demonstrating true switchability defensively.
