  • Jaylen Adams
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks are set to waive Jaylen Adams ahead of his July 19 guarantee date.

    Adams went undrafted in 2018 but after playing well in the G-League, his two-way contract was converted into a standard one. He ended up playing 34 games for the Hawks with 3.2 points, 1.9 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 12.6 minutes. With newly acquired Evan Turner likely to assume the backup point guard duties and Cam Reddish also expected play some point, the Hawks figured holding Adams wasn't necessary. The stat stuffing abilities he displayed in the G-League may bring some calls from other teams but he needs to improve his field goal percentage. He is not on the fantasy radar this season.

  • Nick Ward

    Nick Ward scored 16 points on 4-for-8 shooting including 8-for-10 from the charity stripe along with 13 rebounds, three blocks and a steal on Friday night.

    It's been a mostly quiet Summer League for Ward but he came through with an exceptional performance on Friday night. If Ward can produce for the Hawk's G-League team he may eventually earn some minutes on a young squad.

  • Bruno Fernando
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    Bruno Fernando was a defensive force on Thursday night with four steals and three blocked shots in 28 minutes.

    The rebounding didn't join the defensive impact from Fernando in this one but seven defensive counters is excellent production. The Hawks have a wide open rotation and it'll be interesting to see if he can become a defensive specialist in short order.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter (sore knee) has been ruled out of Thursday's Summer League game.

    Hunter also sat out on Tuesday but there's nothing to suggest that this is a serious issue. The Hawks have already said that Hunter will play a lot this season, and the potential is there for him to start at small forward. Atlanta's rotation could be messy but it's worth keeping an eye on to see who carves out the most playing time.

  • Jabari Parker
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks have officially announced the signing of Jabari Parker, and Parker says he has no problem coming off the bench.

    Parker heads to Atlanta on a two-year, $13 million deal with a player option on the second season. He'll have a good chance to put up numbers on a Hawks team that looks like it'll try to outscore its problems and then hit the market again next summer, where the free agent class doesn't look overly appealing. Parker will be coming off the bench, so it's good that he's already accepted the role — at least outwardly. Atlanta's got young players to develop at the forward spots and Parker's playing time simply isn't a higher priority, though he figures to see minutes in the low twenties. That could still be enough to churn out boring late-round value.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    Hawks GM Travis Schlenk said that rookies De'Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish are going to "play a lot" for the Hawks next season.

    Schlenk emphasized on how the coaching staff will sit down and figure out what the rotation is going to look like, but him and head coach Lloyd Piierce understand that the team needs to get their rookies minutes. The Hawks were really high on Hunter and if he is able to play around 30 minutes he might worth a gamble in the later rounds.

  • Jordan Sibert
    G, Atlanta Hawks

    Jordan Sibert scored 21 points with seven triples, Charlie Brown Jr. scored 18 points and Tahjere McCall scored 15 points with seven rebounds, four assists and two steals to lead the Hawks to an 87-67 win against the Pacers on Tuesday, their first of Summer League.

    The three players combined to shoot 20-of-34 from the field, and Sibert's lights out shooting from deep helped tremendously. Sibert may be playing himself into a rotation spot with his shooting stroke. Brown made his Summer League debut tonight and wasted no time in helping the team churn out its first W, as he and McCall have a chance at cracking a lightened wing rotation.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter (sore knee) is out for the Hawks' Summer League game against Pacers on Tuesday.

    This seems like a routine maintenance day, as has been the case for many players this Summer League season, for the fourth overall pick. Hunter will get another chance to suit up for the Hawks on Thursday.

  • Charlie Brown
    F, Atlanta Hawks

    Hawks F Charlie Brown will be making his Summer League debut against the Pacers on Tuesday.

    Brown will be on a two-way contract and is unlikely to have any fantasy relevance until later in the season as he can only have a maximum of 45 days in the NBA with this contract. Brown has potential as a 3-and-D player when he does get his chance.

  • Sedrick Barefield
    PG-G, Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks have added G Sedrick Barefield to their Summer League roster.

    The undrafted rookie guard out of Utah will look to add depth to the Hawks Summer League team. Barefield's first chance to suit up may come soon as the Hawks have games on Tuesday and Thursday.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    There has been no official announcement yet, but the expectation is that Trae Young will be added to the USA Basketball Select Team in Las Vegas in August.

    Young certainly is deserving of the honor after averaging 19.1 points, 8.1 assists and 3.7 rebounds in a fantastic rookie season which saw him finish as the runner-up in the ROY voting. After an even stronger finish to the season for Young, it's going to take an earlier mid-round pick in fantasy to acquire his services,

  • Omari Spellman
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors have officially announced their acquisition of Omari Spellman for Damian Jones and a second-round pick.

    The second-rounder is for 2026 and is unprotected. For the Warriors, they save a bit of cash and take a chance on a sophomore with a more well-rounded game. Spellman will be a stretch four off the bench and has room to grow into a contributor over time. The Hawks take a flier on Jones' athleticism and he'll need to duel with rookie Bruno Fernando for backup center minutes.

  • Jabari Parker
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    Jabari Parker has agreed to a two-year, $13 million contract with the Hawks.

    Parker will have a player option in the second year of the deal, which gives him a chance to rehab his value on a team that looks like it'll be able to churn out offensive stats. Fantasy owners probably won't find much here, as Parker looks to be blocked at the forward spots by John Collins and De'Andre Hunter.

  • Damian Jones
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    The Warriors will send Damian Jones and a second-round pick to the Hawks in exchange for Omari Spellman, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    Jones started at center for the Warriors to open last season but couldn't make much of an impact after he spent most of the year on the mend after tearing his pectoral. He has a chance to be in the rotation for the Hawks, who only have Alex Len and rookie Bruno Fernando as true centers on the roster. If the playing time is there we could see Jones emerge as a blocks specialist in deeper formats.

  • Omari Spellman
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    Omari Spellman was able to collect 16 points, eight rebounds, three blocks and two 3-pointers in Sunday's Summer League defeat.

    Spellman went 7-of-12 from the field, looking much better after going 3-for-13 yesterday. Look for him to provide some deep-league value as a stretch big, though he will struggle to separate from the pack in a crowded frontcourt rotation.
