Great Listen!

 

 

Cliff Notes:

On 1st year - glad it's over, didn't set any expectations, just tried figuring out what works, what doesn't, create culture and getting to know team and city, incorporate coaching staff, create identity of how we want to play - exciting brand of basketball with our young team. A sense of accomplishment finishing 1st season.

On Trae Young - had an amazing rookie year and impact on the game, immediate impact to make his presence known in the league even though he struggled early shooting, his impact was felt in the league, the fan base and the city. He is one of our CORNERSTONES to grow with. He wants the ball, ability to take and make big shots, not afraid of the moment, loves being in the game late.

Kevin Huerter - biggest surprise since he wasn't ready to play bball to start the season - physically and mentally. Our most talented player, skilled shooter esp. from 3, underrated facilitator. Coach blames himself for lack of involvement, needs more involvement next season. He played 73 games which showed his growth since he wasn't expected to play.

No expectations set for next season, just to get better individually and as a team.

FAs - Dewayne and Vince has earned the right to do what's best for themselves and family whether here ir elsewhere but would definitely like them back.

Draft - he's Assistant GM/Scout and will give his input but won't be the loudest voice since the GM/Scouts have more insight - hswks are about Talent Acquisition - so best available player for what we do and how they fit what we do.

Yeah that was a great read and listen.  I was thoroughly impressed with how he ran the team!  Glad he admitted Kevin should have gotten more minutes!  I think our team is definitely trending upward!

We got what I believe now to be a really good coach.

Another stroke of genius by Travis Schlenk.   The Hawks are a really well run organization and now we have a good owner as well.

This Hawks team is gonna be good soon.
