Hawks: A projection of Jalen Johnson's ceiling

Article Summary:

Atlanta Hawks rookie forward Jalen Johnson’s ceiling could be similar to Simmons

There has been no shortage of breakdowns of Johnson’s game.

Both players spent one season in college; Johnson at Duke and Simmons at LSU.

In his lone season as a Tiger, Simmons averaged 19.2 points, 11.8 boards, and 4.8 assists with 2.0 steals across 33 games. Interestingly, Johnson had the block advantage, averaging 1.2 per contest to Simmons’ 0.9.

The possibility that Johnson could offer much of what Simmons does but perhaps in a more valuable package to the Hawks is why Johnson was one of the five reasons we said Atlanta should be out on trade talk regarding the talented but embattled Simmons.
