The Hawks have some very interesting names on their Summer League roster, and it’s hard to imagine they won’t be contending for the championship:
Hawks who will be playing Summer League, per GM Travis Schlenk: Cam Reddish, Onyeka Okongwu, Skylar Mays, Nathan Knight

Cam Reddish was especially incredible during the playoffs, shooting over 63% from three in the Eastern Conference Finals. Coming off of an injury-filled season, it will be good for Reddish to get some work in and ease into next season. Onyeka Okongwu looked like an incredible switchable big during the playoffs, and he’s another guy that will benefit from getting consistent minutes during the summer. His per 36 stats were pretty nice for a rookie — 13.7 points, 9.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.4 steals, and 2.0 blocks per game while shooting almost 66% from the floor.
I was a big fan of Skylar Mays in the second round, and with Lou Williams potentially departing, he may have to take on a bigger role going into 2021-2022. I wrote about how excited I was about Nathan Knight back in December, and the undrafted free agent looked very impressive in limited flashes during 2020-2021. Knight is an exciting young player, and I think he could work into Atlanta’s rotation in 2021-2022.
