Hawks to face Bronny James, Alex Sarr in Summer League

COLLEGE BASKETBALL: MAR 14 Pac 12 Tournament USC vs Arizon

The Hawks are gearing up for a highly anticipated season following the departure of Dejounte Murray, the acquisition of Zaccharie Risacher, and the emergence of Jalen Johnson.

Atlanta is clearly building around Trae Young and doing it the right way this time. Instead of going after stars that didn’t impact winning around Young, the Hawks are surrounding their star point guard with players that can affect winning conditions.

They aren’t done, and 2024 won’t be the campaign where Atlanta returns to the Eastern Conference Finals, but the Hawks are moving in the right direction. It begins in a couple of weeks in Las Vegas.

The NBA Summer League will feature a ton of bright young stars, and the Hawks will begin with Alex Sarr and the Wizards on July 12 — No. 1 overall pick Zaccharie Risacher vs. No. 2 overall pick Alex Sarr.

It’s a situation that isn’t dissimilar from the Trae Young and Luka Doncic saga. Risacher and Sarr will be compared to one another for the rest of their careers because of the drama that preceded the NBA Draft. Hawks fans will already be rooting against the new Wizards star.

He’s not the only notable name, either.┬áThe Hawks also will face the Lakers, who drafted LeBron James‘ son, Bronny James, in the second round of the draft. The Hawks will also square off against the Spurs and Bulls in the first four contests. Below are the first four games, dates, and where to watch.
