After a brief stint in training camp Humphries was brought back on late in the season as injuries took a toll on our front line. Appearing in just five contests for the Hawks, not much can be said about him. Expect to see him with the Summer League team in Vegas and potentially in training camp as he battles for what would probably be the last roster spot or two-way contract.

Adams initially began the year on a two-way contract. The Hawks converted that to a multi-year contract in January. After the departure of Jermey Lin, Adams became the sole backup behind Trae. The results weren’t pretty and often resulted in Lloyd Pierce using Bembry as the secondary ball handler.

If the Hawks are to be competitive next year, having a better backup Point Guard will be necessary. With the deal being only partially guaranteed for next season, he could be waived in the event that the Hawks need a roster spot. In any event, next year Jaylen will likely be relegated to the G-League or garbage time.

It took until the final weeks of the season, but Justin Anderson showed us what he’s made of. In perhaps the best game of his career, Justin turned in a 24 Point, 12 Rebound performance to help the Hawks come from 23 down and beat the Bucks.

Anderson showed hustle on both ends of the court down the stretch and made a case for him to be an integral part of the rotation going into next season.

Throw any big who can roll and catch around the basket into the game with Trae and they’ll be serviceable. Davis can do those things and potentially made a case to be the 4th big for next season. His contract is probably not guaranteed but expect him to make a case for himself in Summer League and training camp.

BRRRRRR, what happened to that boy?! After looking well, umm “decent” to start the season, Plumlee seemed to disappear. He missed most of the season with knee soreness before finally having surgery in March. For the majority of the time he wasn’t even with the team but here’s proof he still exists. I’m not sure what to expect next year.

AP was another high motor guy who always seemed to make the most of his opportunity. Unfortunately he missed a good chunk of the season due to injury. He should however get another crack at things next season.

O-Boogie had a see-saw Rookie affair. After starting hot he sustained an injury and then lost control of his weight. He openly admitted that and worked very hard to get back into playing shape.

Omari has a high motor and good overall skill offensively. If he can control his weight and work on his defensive mechanics he could be an integral part of what we’re building in Atlanta.
