Player News - Hawks

Date: Team: Pos:

Jeff Teague donated $20 per assist last season to Atlanta’s Hughes Spalding Children’s Hospital.

His dime total led to a donation of $11,260 and there are plans for him to continue next year. The Hawks are not as deep as last year with DeMarre Carroll in Toronto, so it'll be interesting to see how Teague adapts. He's still coming off a huge year and is a solid PG1 in standard leagues.

The Hawks have hired Michael Blackstone as their assistant GM, John Treloar will become the Director of Player Personnel, while Jeff Peterson has been promoted to Director of Scouting.

The Hawks' front office is finally taking shape after the departure of Danny Ferry. In case you missed it, the Hawks hired Wes Wilcox as the new GM, while Mike Budenholzer will serve as the team's President of Basketball Operations in addition to his duties as head coach.

Mike Scott admitted all the drugs from his felony possession charge belonged to him.

He was a passenger in his brother's car with 10.9 grams of MDMA and one ounce of Molly. The incident report says his brother was unaware of the drugs in the car. Scott will be facing a suspension and may even be released.

Kent Bazemore said that he is going to continue to try to become one of the top defenders in the league.

"I’m just going to continue to try to be one of the best defenders in the NBA," Bazemore said. "I’ve been doing a lot of alternate training this offseason, playing tennis, golf and certain things to shape my brain to think differently." Bazemore was solid for the Hawks off the bench last season, but he could asked to play a much larger role with DeMarre Carroll out of the picture. Thabo Sefolosha is currently the favorite to start at the three, but keep a close eye on Bazemore during the preseason.

Mike Scott has been bonded out of the Banks County Sheriff’s Office Law Enforcement Center.

In case you missed it, Scott and his brother were arrested on Thursday on felony drug charges for possession of marijuana and MDMA. "We are aware of the situation involving Mike Scott this morning," Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said on Thursday. "Out of respect for the legal process, we will not have any additional comment at this time." A court date is currently pending, so we will continue to update this story when we know more. To be clear, the NBA or the Hawks could pursue disciplinary action against Scott even before the legal process is concluded.

Mike Scott was arrested on felony drug charges for possession of marijuana and possession of Schedule I drug (MDMA).

Scott was arrested due to having drugs in his possession and was the passenger in a car. Banks County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Carissa McFaddin said, "Deputies located over an ounce of marijuana in the vehicle along with approximately 10.9 grams of MDMA (Molly)." Police pulled over the SUV going 98 MPH.

Kyle Korver (ankle, elbow) remains hopeful that he will be ready in time for training camp.

"I’m doing OK," Korver said. "Both ankle and elbow are progressing fine. I’m definitely hopeful that they will be ready to go by camp." Korver had surgery on his right elbow and his right ankle, but all signs point to him being ready to start the season. He posted averages of 12.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.9 3-pointers in 75 appearances last season, and he will once again be an elite option for any owner in need of 3-pointers.

Thabo Sefolosha (ankle) said he's progressing in his rehab, but is unsure of exactly when he'll be back on the court.

Sefolosha said he's feeling better after undergoing surgery on his broken right fibula that he suffered in an April altercation with police in New York City, but still doesn't have a timetable. "I am doing better every day," Sefolosha said. "The leg and ankle are feeling good but it is too early to say exactly when I’ll be back on the court." There is a chance that Sefolosha ends up as Atlanta's starting small forward with DeMarre Carroll gone, but he's still more of a defensive specialist and isn't worth a roster spot in standard fantasy leagues.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford will not play with the Dominican Republic this summer.

Horford has instead decided to focus on the upcoming NBA season as he heads into a contract year. Horford has had some injury issues throughout his career, so he'll likely come at a depressed value for fantasy owners on draft day. The 29-year-old has been a top-20 fantasy player when healthy, however, and could be a mid-round steal for fantasy owners willing to assume some risk.

Mike Budenholzer has entered a not guilty plea in his driving under the influence case, according to his attorney.

Budenholzer faces misdemeanor DUI charges from an arrest on August 28, 2013 and could be sentenced to up to a year in jail, as much as a $1,000 fine, a driver’s license suspension, and community services for a first-time offense. While those penalties are unlikely, Budenholzer will likely face a two-game suspension from the NBA if he's found guilty. We'll keep an eye on Budenholzer's situation, but it's unlikely he'll face any jail time.

Lamar Patterson said he wants to show the Hawks how much he improved overseas during 2015 training camp.

The second-round pick from the 2014 went overseas to play in Turkey. In his 29 games there, Patterson averaged 11.2 points, 3.4 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.4 treys on 43.2 percent from the field in 28.6 minutes per game. Patterson also wasn’t very impressive at Summer League in 2014, but made a noticeable leap in 2015 with averages of 13.1 points, 5.1 boards, 3.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.3 treys per game on 45.2 percent from the field. Even with the improvement, he has his work cut out for himself.

The Hawks have invited Terran Petteway to training camp.

Petteway will now join the Hawks on a partially guaranteed contract after playing Summer League with Atlanta's squad. While there's a chance that he hooks on with the Hawks as a bench player, the 22-year-old won't see enough playing time to warrant any attention from fantasy owners.

The Atlanta Hawks have invited Lamar Patterson to training camp.

The Hawks reportedly liked Patterson's development in Turkey and would like to see what he can do in training camp this summer. It's not a lock that the Hawks second-round from last season makes the final roster after signing a partially guaranteed contract, but even if he does, he's unlikely to provide much fantasy value.
Jul 23 - 9:51 AM

Terran Petteway is hoping to earn an invite to Hawks training camp.

"They get up and down the floor. That’s my type of basketball, right there, getting up and down the floor," he said. It's Petteway's "goal" to earn a training camp invite and simply let the cards fall where they may from that point.

Edy Taveres suffered a right index finger laceration on Saturday.

He was having another solid game before the injury, scoring six points with five rebounds and one block in 14 minutes. Taveres has a 7'9" wingspan and the Hawks will certainly be hoping they have the next Rudy Gobert on their hands. Of course, Taveres has a lot to prove.
