Hawks November Game Thread

40 posts in this topic

Hard fought game tonight, but the good guys came up short. They aren't backing down this year. Record is 2-10, but I like how they are still out there playing hard. 

Also why is Collins not starting already?

That's what's puzzling to me as well. Would rather see him and Dedmon start to together. No doubt that these boys are playing hard.

The NBA and Bud seem to be too enamored with the "Pop & Shoot PF"... That's why there is talk of playing Collins at Center now. They're too impatient to keep him at PF, and allow his game to grow there. Euro-ball silliness..

Hawks have 14 games this month. All games except 2 occur in a 4 games in 6 nights stretch. The NBA did us no favors to start the season, now it continues into November.

No real practice time available to develop with this kind of schedule.

 

Draft Lottery Chances are improving...

Bud, or no-Bud a Head Coach in the future... No stars = No long-term money generated for this Franchise.  Still, the owners share some money some most of the franshises tha tlose money regularly--will not go bankrupt.

Hawks assign Miles Plumlee and Nicolas Brussino to G League affiliate

 

by Jeff Siegel Nov 15, 2017, 4:00pm EST

Peachtree Hoops  


 

Update: Miles Plumlee will spend two games in Erie, per Mike Budenholzer.

Per a report from the AJC’s Michael Cunningham, the Atlanta Hawks have assigned both Miles Plumlee and Nicolas Brussino to their G League affiliate in Erie:

For Plumlee, this move represents another step in the recovery process from a strained quad. He picked up the injury during training camp and has yet to play for the Hawks this season, but if he can stay healthy, he might be able to help an Atlanta team that certainly has a need for depth in the front court. Plumlee, as a veteran with more than two years of NBA service, had to sign off on the move to Erie.

Brussino hasn’t been able to break into the team regularly either and a trip to Erie will keep him sharp in case the Hawks need him down the line. Assigning the forward to the G League also may indicate a return for DeAndre’ Bembry, who is recovering from a fractured wrist.

Brussino may bounce back and forth between Atlanta and Erie a few times this season as management tries to decide how much value he may have in free agency next summer. Plumlee shouldn’t need more than a game or two to get back into shape and should be back with the Hawks quickly.

We may have to extend Dedmon before the season ends. 

He's been steadily improving. He's really been on a tear the last week or so.
