Dozens of prospects will be profiled in this space and, this time, we break down Creighton guard Ty-Shon Alexander. The search for quality role players is ongoing in NBA circles, particularly for teams attempting to build around established stars.

Photo by Moses Robinson/ Atlanta’s basketball club is making sure the cities’ youth is staying active. Kids may be forced to sit in front of a screen for seven-to-eight hours to learn nowadays, but the Atlanta Hawks organization is doing its part in making an unideal situation more manageable. On Thursday, the Hawks announced a formal partnership with Atlanta Public Schools for an online program for students to stay educated and active during this time of social distancing called “Hawks at Home.” “The pandemic has limited student access to extracurricular programs,” Jon...

Trae Young listed at 80-1 to win 2020-21 NBA MVP award

Photo by Sarah Stier/ With four weeks until the 2020 NBA Draft, all is (relatively) quiet in the NBA world. The New Orleans Pelicans did make a head coaching hire on Wednesday but, for teams without open management positions, it is all steam ahead toward the draft, free agency, the trade market and, eventually, the 2020-21 season. Until the fireworks begin in mid-November, though, fans of the Atlanta Hawks and other NBA franchises are left to speculate wildly on what might come next. That is, of course, a well-worn pastime but, in the modern era, that also means NBA championship odds,...

Hawks land 24th in ‘way-too-early’ NBA power rankings

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ Beginning with Lloyd Pierce in March, members of the Atlanta Hawks are putting the focus squarely on the playoffs for the 2020-21 season. That is, of course, the logical goal for a team still in the midst of a rebuild but, with all kinds of roster uncertainty as the 2020 offseason (finally) arrives for all 30 teams across the league, mixed projections are rolling in for just how good the Hawks might be next season. While every caveat should apply to any set of power rankings before the draft and free agency, ESPN’s 40-member panel weighed in with their...

Atlanta Hawks: Can Brandon Goodwin be Long-Term Backup PG?

Looking into Brandon Goodwin’s future with the Atlanta Hawks. One of the most interesting parts of last season’s Atlanta Hawks is how they handled the point guard position. The position (and the whole offense) was anchored by All-Star Trae Young, but outside him, they had no others to bring off the bench Veteran Evan Turner […] Atlanta Hawks: Can Brandon Goodwin be Long-Term Backup PG? - Soaring Down South - Soaring Down South - An Atlanta Hawks blog

Mock Draft: Haliburton to Hawks in post-finals projection

Photo by David K Purdy/ A new mock as the one-month mark nears. The 2019-20 NBA season is officially in the books, with the Los Angeles Lakers defeating the Miami Heat and claiming the Larry O’Brien Trophy. With that, all 30 teams are now in offseason mode, even while acknowledging that eight franchises — including the Atlanta Hawks — have been here for more than seven months. Still, the end of the NBA Finals represents the unofficial kickoff to full-fledged mock draft season and, on Tuesday, Sam Vecenie of The Athletic released a new projection.
