Kent Bazemore exercised his player option on Friday to return to the Hawks for 2019-20.
An injury derailed what was looking like a strong season for Bazemore and the Hawks moved on towards rookie Kevin Huerter. It was financially the right move to take the hefty 19.2 million dollars on his player option. Look for Bazemore to be a heavily-discussed trade name going forward as the Hawks rebuild continues.
