Hawks’ 2017 Summer League Bigs, Part Two

Diamond Stone is the newest Atlanta Hawk, and will suit up for the Summer League team. In 13 D-League games last season, Stone averaged 16.2 points and 7 rebounds per game, and he should be able to do work against a number of D-League-level talents in Summer League play.

Duje Dukan starred at Wisconsin for five years, playing a sort of combo forward. A mobile 6’10 player who made 44 three pointers with the Badgers, Dukan seems to fit the Hawks’ ideal style of play well. In 2016-17, Dukan played 25 games for the Windy City Bulls, starting in 7. After averaging only 3.1 points per game over his entire NCAA career, Dukan put up 9.6 points and 3.4 rebounds per game. He shot 43 percent from three-point land, on 3.7 attempts per game.

The two most irrelevant players o the roster, Quincy Ford and Richard Solomon, will rarely play for the Hawks 2017 Summer League team. With two bigs already under contract, and another (Kaba) with the potential to be signed for the 2017-18 season, there is no legitimate reason for Ford or Solomon to play.
