The Hawks have officially re-signed Shelvin Mack.
"Shelvin has proven himself to be an excellent fit in our program," GM Danny Ferry said. "On the court, he plays well within our system and possesses a toughness and level of unselfishness that we truly value." Mack averaged 7.5 points, 3.7 assists, and 0.8 three-pointers as the Hawks backup point guard last season, and while he is a serviceable backup, he's not in the conversation for standard league consideration.

Restricted free agent Shelvin Mack has reportedly agreed to a three-year, $7.3 million deal to return to Atlanta.

Mack averaged 7.5 points, 3.7 assists, and 0.8 three-pointers a game during the 2013-14 season, and while his numbers don't jump off the page, he is a serviceable backup point guard. That being said, he is not on the radar in standard leagues.

The Hawks have extended a qualifying offer to backup point guard Shelvin Mack, making him a restricted free agent.

Mack played well in his role as backup and it's unclear if he'll fetch a greater offer in the open market.

Shelvin Mack hopes to be in an Atlanta Hawks uniform next season.

Mack will be a restricted free agent this summer, but would like to return to the Hawks after playing his way into a backup point guard role. "I would like to be back," Mack said. "I’ll continue to work and improve my game and let my agent and everyone else deal with that. Of course [I want to return]. I feel like it’s a great situation for me." The 24-year-old averaged 7.5 points, 0.8 3-pointers, 2.2 boards, 3.7 assists, and 0.7 steals this season and will provide the Hawks or his next team with a solid bench option next season.
May 6 - 11:35 AM

Shelvin Mack scored 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds and five assists in 28 minutes off the bench on Monday.

If the Hawks continue to rest guys en masse then Mack will be worth a look for potential like this.
Apr 14 - 10:49 PM

Shelvin Mack played 35 minutes as the starting shooting guard against the Blazers, shooting 3-of-9 from the field for nine points, three boards, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

The Hawks have been starting him in three of his last four, but it's been more out of necessity. Mack's shot has disappeared and his defense hasn't looked great either. He can be ignored in several formats.
Mar 27 - 9:54 PM

Shelvin Mack came off the bench on Wednesday and had nine points, two rebounds, four assists and a steal in a loss to Minnesota.

Mack had been starting at shooting guard, but was replaced by Mike Scott tonight. He still got some decent run with Jeff Teague benched, but won't be worth using in any formats as long as he's coming off the bench. He was starting for Kyle Korver, who is still out with a lingering back injury.
Mar 27 - 12:59 AM

Shelvin Mack will move back to the bench for Wednesday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

The Hawks will move DeMarre Carroll to shooting guard and push Mike Scott to the starting small forward spot. Mack has looked awful in his last two games, shooting a combined 5-of-16 from the field in his 28.5 minutes per game. Fantasy owners can expect him to act more as a backup point guard, which may also affect Lou Williams' and Dennis Schroder's playing time.
Mar 26 - 4:10 PM

Shelvin Mack scored five points in 28 minutes against the Suns on Monday with two rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

It was his third consecutive start with Kyle Korver (back) on the shelf. This was his second dud in a row after putting up a stellar 18-point game on Friday, so anyone who picked him up following that game is likely very disappointed. Korver could be out on Wednesday and Mack may get at least one more chance to redeem himself.
Mar 24 - 11:08 PM

Fresh off an 18-point game on Friday, Shelvin Mack scored only seven points on 3-of-7 shooting in Sunday's road loss vs. the Raptors.

He added two rebounds and two steals without any assists, and the lack of scoring should be familiar to fantasy owners since he's cracked double-digits just once in Atlanta's past seven games. With Lou Williams (four points in 19 minutes) back in the rotation there's even less upside for Mack, who shouldn't be owned in standard leagues.
Mar 23 - 3:59 PM

Shelvin Mack will draw another start at shooting guard on Sunday, replacing the injured Kyle Korver (back).

Mack had a nice showing in his last start, scoring 18 points, to go along with three boards, four assists, and four 3-pointers. He will be looked to again on Sunday as a guy that can spread the floor, and he makes for a decent add for those seeking some 3-point shooting.
Mar 23 - 11:51 AM

Shelvin Mack started at shooting guard in place of Kyle Korver (back) on Friday, finishing with 18 points, three boards, four assists and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He shot 7-of-11 from the field and has been solid when he gets the call as the starter. In his previous six starts, Mack averaged 11.8 points, 3.2 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 0.3 steals and 1.3 triples. It's unknown how bad Korver's back spasms are, but Mack is worth a look as a short-term add vs. the Raptors on Sunday.
Mar 22 - 12:19 AM

Shelvin Mack will start at shooting guard in place of Kyle Korver (back) on Friday.

This news popped up out of nowhere and Mack should be busy in the starting lineup. Plus, the Hawks are likely to get Lou Williams back in the rotation tonight. If Mack can hit his shots, he might have some success against a struggling Pelicans defense.
Mar 21 - 7:54 PM

Shelvin Mack came off the bench and played 30 minutes, but hit just 2-of-11 shots for five points, five rebounds and seven assists.

He still managed to fill the stat sheet in the blowout loss, but was only getting big minutes because of the lopsided score. As long as Jeff Teague is healthy (and he is), Mack shouldn't be in fantasy lineups.
Mar 6 - 1:25 AM

Shelvin Mack made another start on Wednesday alongside Jeff Teague and had six points, three rebounds, eight assists and a 3-pointer on 1-of-5 shooting in 31 minutes.

Mack is playing point guard, while Teague is playing in a shooting guard role. It's helped Teague's scoring and Mack is a decent play with a very cheap price tag. However, once Paul Millsap and Pero Antic are back, Mack's return to bench should effectively ruin his fantasy value.
