Babbitt was with the Heat last season and will provide some depth at the power forward spot. His ability to stretch the floor also helps, though he’s not likely to see much playing time when Kelly Olynyk is healthy. His recent shoulder injury is a little concerning, as is the fact that Babbitt offers a lot of the same skills, so perhaps he’s looking at some non-insignificant time on the shelf. White had some nice moments last year and it’s not a bad gamble for the Hawks to get a look at a much younger, more dynamic player. He’s still recovering from a foot fracture so Atlanta is playing the long game on that front. There’s no fantasy relevance here.
