Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap, and Al Horford all cracked the top ten in their respective positions. 2K sports has released their top-10 highest rated players at each position, including a top-10 list of overall best players. NBA 2K16 will be released September 29, which is exactly in one week.

Teague was rated as the 10th best point guard by 2K16 as an 83 overall. He looks to continue to progress as a player, as he averaged 15.9 PPG and 7.0 AST.

Paul Millsap comes in 10th overall on the power forward list, and one could say he could easily be rated higher. Millsap is rated as an 83 overall, and he has been an all-star the past two seasons in Atlanta. He decided to stay in Atlanta after signing a 3-year/$58.9 million contract, and he averaged 16.7 PPG with 7.8 REB.

The last Atlanta Hawks player to crack the list is Al Horford. He is rated the sixth best center in the league by NBA 2K16. Horford had an incredible 2014-2015 season, and his play in the playoffs was a key reason why Atlanta made it to the Eastern Conference Finals. Horford averaged 15.2 PPG and 7.2 REB, while also having 1.3 blocks per game.
It was a strong showing by the Atlanta Hawks last season, and they look to continue to build on that success. My question to NBA 2K Sports would be, “If there was a top 10 list for head coaches, where would Mike Budenholzer be listed?”
