Player News - Hawks

Date: Team: Pos:

Jarell Eddie was impressive for the Pacers on Saturday, scoring 16 points with six boards, one steal and four 3-pointers in 21 minutes vs. the Heat at the Orlando Summer League.

C.J. Watson is heading to the Magic and Rodney Stuckey could leave the Pacers as well this summer, so Indiana does need to add some shooting to their bench. Eddie didn't really get a fair shot with the Hawks last season, but if he continues to make noise at summer league it wouldn't be surprising to see him get a camp invite from the Pacers.

Unrestricted free agent John Jenkins has reportedly received interest from as many as six NBA teams.

Jenkins will be a backup wherever he signs, so the jersey he is wearing will not affect on his non-existent fantasy value.

The Hawks have agreed to a deal with Walter Tavares.

The 7'3" center will leave Spain after averaging 8.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks in just 22 minutes and will join the Hawks as a bit of a project. While Tavares has plenty of upside, he's still quite raw and can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.

Paul Millsap has agreed to a three-year, $59 million deal to stay with the Hawks.

It's likely a three-year deal with the a player option for the third year. Millsap signing a deal is a big domino to fall here, so there are likely going to be some lesser power forwards agreeing to deals now. Millsap was wonderful with the Hawks last year and is great in their system, so look for him in the second round of drafts.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Spurs have traded Tiago Splitter to the Hawks.

Wow. The Spurs just locked up Danny Green with a four-year, $45 million deal, but clearing Splitter's contract off the books will give them the cap space that they need to make a run at LaMarcus Aldridge (who they are meeting with shortly). The Hawks aren't going to be able to afford having Splitter, Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll on the roster, so something has to give. Stay tuned.

Paul Millsap has narrowed his list down to two teams, the Magic and the Hawks.

Millsap met with the Magic right when free agency began on Wednesday, so the meeting obviously went very well. ESPN's Chris Broussard reported that the Magic offered Millsap a four-year, $80 million max deal, but the Hawks have also put that same offer on the table. If the Magic are able to sign Millsap, this could be bad news for the fantasy value of Aaron Gordon.

The Kings are "very interested" in backup point guard Dennis Schroder, according to team beat writer Ailene Voisin.

The Kings are "interested" in just about everyone on this side of the Equator. Schroder is under contract for this upcoming season, but we'd just thought we'd throw this out there because the Kings are the Kings. Schroder can make plays, but he can also make plays for the other team, too.

The Knicks may have interest in free agent Paul Millsap, though his expected salary demands may be too high for New York.

Millsap could command upward of $17 million per season, a price even James Dolan and the Knicks would balk at paying. The Celtics, Jazz and Hawks have all been linked to Millsap in free agency, but there's a chance that he won't sign anywhere until guys like Kevin Love and LaMarcus Aldridge are off the market.

Kyle Korver had right elbow surgery on Tuesday and the Hawks expect him to be fully recovered for training camp.

The surgery was to remove loose bodies in his shooting elbow, which makes it even more impressive that he knocked down 221 triples last season on 49.2 percent shooting beyond the arc. The 34-year-old also had ankle surgery in May and he could see his minutes scaled back slightly next season, but he remains an elite source of 3-pointers for fantasy owners.

The Hawks have officially promoted Mike Budenholzer to President of Basketball Operations in addition to his duties as head coach.

Wes Wilcox is the team's new GM, filling the void created by Danny Ferry's recent resignation. Budenholzer guided his team to an impressive 60-22 record this season, best in the Eastern Conference, but he faces a tricky offseason with Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll both hitting free agency.

Pero Antic has signed with Fenerbahce of Turkey.

Antic didn't have much impact during the 2014-15 season and finished the season with averages of 5.7 points and 3.0 rebounds in 63 games. While the 32-year-old will see a big bump in minutes with Fenerbahce, he can be dropped off draft boards for 2015-15 fantasy leagues.

Kyle Korver will have surgery on his right elbow to remove loose bodies.

He's already recovering from right ankle surgery and chances are this surgery is less severe. Korver is on track to be ready for camp and hopefully this surgery doesn't affect his sweet stroke from 3-point range.
Jun 29 - 8:36 PM

Pero Antic will sign with Fenerbahce for next season.

Antic is a restricted free agent, but it sounds like he wants some playing time in the pros. He had a nice little run in 2013-14 due to an Al Horford injury, but he's really fallen off and has been dominated inside the 3-point line.

Hawks second round draft pick Dimitrios Agravanis will stay in Europe.

The Hawks don't have any current plans to bring him over, but that could change in the future.
Jun 29 - 10:03 AM

Hawks draft pick Marcus Eriksson will stay in Europe for the foreseeable future.

Don't expect to see him in Atlanta anytime soon.
