    It was initially reported that he was looking for one last pay day.
    Now it's saying he wants to return, I'll take him at the vet min.
    Great in the locker room and with the young guys.

    Here's what Zeller had to say:
    “In my mind, a team that’s top four in their conference, they’re playing for home-court advantage, they aren’t playing to make the playoffs — they’re playing for home-court advantage and then anything can happen once you get in the playoffs," Zeller said. "In my mind, that’s a winning team. Even if that means me playing 15, 20 minutes as the backup center on a team like that, that would be my ideal role in free agency.”
     
    If he or RLopez wants a portion of our MLE, sign me up.

    We can't afford Holmes or Allen, they're looking for 4yrs deals north of $80+ mil.
    Noel, Dieng, Hernangomez should be around the veteran minimum of $2 mil.

    Solo should not be our primary backup at SF. He's our 'in case of emergency break glass' bench player. Great for the locker room and bench.
    Our 2 way players last year played a lot due to injury and the Hawks didn't run their GLeague team due to COVID. I think whoever ends up getting the 2way contracts will be spending ample time in the GLeague this year, along with our 2 rookies.
    So we have 15 NBA roster spots to fill, unless we start the season with 14.
    These are our current 11 guarantees:
    Trae/Delon
    Bogdan/Huerter
    Hunter/Reddish
    Collins/Gallo/Johnson
    Capela/OO(injured)
    So we have 4 spots to fill plus 2-2ways.

    With John's caphold the Hawks are right at the salary cap (or very close), so not much capspace left.
    We do have the MLE of $9 mil and the BAE of $3 mil to use in FAcy.

    This really pisses me off. If I was Trae, I would tell them to get f****d when they come calling unless those two geriatric a****les are gone or stroked out.

    Delon Wright has some versatility in that he can play PG/SG, and same for Jalen Johnson, who can play in the post or on the perimeter. Definitely need to add a serviceable backup center to chew minutes until OO is back, though.

    Agreed but I think sometimes he seems more involved when he’s able to handle the ball because he has the ability to create his own shot.  Defensively he’s there but he definitely needs to understand his role and adapt his game to mesh with Trae.  I think we will see great improvement!

    Cam has always had playing time. His issues are his inconsistencies shooting and his inability to be Trae's outlet when doubled and having to run and initiate the offense. Those are the areas I need to see his improvement.

    Hawks still need a vet backup PG and Center.
    TS has said expect the young guys to see ample time in the GLeague since we have transitioned from a developmental team to a team expecting to win.
    Wether Cooper is signed to an NBA contract or a two-way contract depends on what we do in FAcy at backup PG. No sense in starting his NBA clock early if he's going to spend most of his time in the GL. 
    With the OO injury and since Bruno has been a non-factor, Hawks need a cheap backup C (Dieng, RLopez, Noel, McGee, etc) as a stop gap.
    The way I see it: 
    PG: Trae | FA Vet | Mays/Goodwin
    G: Bogi | Huerter | FA
    SF: Hunter | Reddish | Hill 
    PF: Collins | Gallo | Johnson
    C Capela | Okongwu | FA Vet 
    Cam will have to be real special (offensively) in training camp to replace Bogi as the starting SG.
    I think the Hawks try to move Dunn and Bruno to clear capspace to fill the backup PG or C spots.
    Cooper and Knight - 2 way contracts

    Sounds a lot like LP: Colangelo on not picking Trae to replace Beal:
    I'm happy that he wants to play for USA Basketball," Colangelo said. "He's done really well in the NBA. But predicated on what we felt we needed, he didn't fit the bill this time around. He's a young player, he has a future with USA Basketball but it was the opinion of our staff that it wasn't now. It's for others to make the declaration you made a mistake'."

    Regarding the Reddish/#20 for trading up....TS did say that he had disscussions about moving up in the draft.
    From the rumor mill, The teams were asking for Reddish, TS wasn't offering him though but most likely Huerter.
