Player Notes

  • Paul Millsap wants to re-sign w/ the Hawks
    Paul Millsap said he wants to re-sign with the Hawks this summer.

    Advice: "I want to be here," Millsap said. "I think talks have been pretty good. ... It's something me, my agent and my family have got to sit down and talk about." Millsap already confirmed that he will "most likely" opt out of his player option and become a free agent, but the Hawks are "going to make every effort imaginable to keep him" according to team owner Tony Ressler. Head coach Mike Budenholzer said he's "incredibly optimistic and incredibly committed to Paul," so the Hawks have made their intentions pretty clear. A max contract offer seems likely for the 32-year-old All-Star. Rotoworld.com 25 minutes ago
  • Re-signing Tim Hardaway Jr. is a priority
    Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said that re-signing Tim Hardaway Jr. will be a priority of his this offseason.

    Advice: THJ was one of the most improved players in the NBA in 2016-17, averaging 14.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.9 triples in 27.3 minutes per game. Hardaway was actually a candidate to be moved prior to the February deadline, but he made himself indispensable with some strong play after the turn of the new year. He's a restricted free agent which means the Hawks can match any offer he receives, so THJ will likely reprise his role as Atlanta's sixth man in 2017-18 as long as his price doesn't get out of hand. It's not out of the question that he could continue to start as well like he did to close out this season. Rotoworld.com 33 minutes ago
  • Taurean Prince's development is a priority
    Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said the development of Taurean Prince and Dennis Schroder will be one of his three priorities this summer.

    Advice: His other two priorities are improving the offense and re-signing Tim Hardaway Jr. and Paul Millsap. Prince showed fantasy owners a glimpse of his upside after the All-Star break, averaging 8.4 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.7 blocks and 0.8 triples in 24.2 minutes per game in that span. The money stats are the key to his value (steals, blocks and triples), and with Thabo Sefolosha hitting free agency this summer, Prince has to like to his chances of opening the 2017-18 season as the starting small forward. He could be a sleeper in fantasy leagues and we'll get a long look at him during the summer league. Rotoworld.com 42 minutes ago
  • Budenholzer to meet w/ Dwight Howard
    Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said he plans to meet with Dwight Howard "within a week or two" to discuss his limited role during the playoffs.

    Advice: Howard did not play in the fourth quarter of Game 6 on Friday which was the second time in six playoff games that he did not play in the fourth. "It was very difficult. I want to play," Howard said Saturday. "I want to be on the floor. I want to make an impact. You can't do it on the bench." Howard averaged 13.5 points, 12.7 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 29.7 minutes per game during the regular season, but those averages dropped to 8.0 points, 10.7 rebounds and 0.8 blocks in 26.2 minutes in the postseason. Coach Bud said he went away from Howard because he wanted to "play faster and more spread," so it was more of a matchup move. Howard will be 32 in December and is under contract for two more seasons.

  • Shaun Livingston still questionable
    Shaun Livingston (hand, finger) is still questionable for Game 1 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Even the full week off didn't get him all the way back. The Warriors didn't miss Livingston whatsoever because Ian Clark just kills the Blazers. That may be different in the second round. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:36 pm
