Read on to explore the Atlanta Hawks schedule for the Las Vegas Summer League.

Now that the 2019 NBA Draft is over, one might be shocked to discover that actual NBA basketball is about to be played as soon as next week!

That’s right, it’s Summer League season for die-hard NBA fans, which means that teams with a glut of young players – such as the Atlanta Hawks – will get to showcase those players in Las Vegas against other youngsters.

Last year, Trae Young lit up the tournament on the way to being named Second Team All-Summer League:

Here’s the full schedule for the Hawks in Summer League:

Saturday, July 6
5 p.m. – Milwaukee vs. Atlanta (NBA TV)

Sunday, July 7
5:30 p.m. – Atlanta vs. Minnesota (ESPN2)

Tuesday, July 9
5:30 p.m. – Atlanta vs. Indiana (NBA TV)

Thursday, July 11
6:30 p.m. – Washington vs. Atlanta (ESPN2)

The team will also play in either the consolation games or the tournament to crown the “winner” of the event.

For the Atlanta Hawks, the main highlight of Summer League would be Cam Reddish, but he is still recovering from the core muscle surgery he had this offseason – which means he will not play in Summer League, sadly.

However, the Hawks won’t be lacking for players to watch as it seems likely that Omari Spellman will play big minutes and Kevin Huerter might also make an appearance – as John Collins did last year.

Due to the machinations of trades that brought De’Andre Hunter to the Hawks, he will likely not be available until at least the second game on Sunday, though he might not play at all. Bruno Fernando’s status is unknown.

However, three players that have been recently acquired will definitely be present: Charlie Brown of Saint Joseph’s, who signed a two-way deal with the Hawks after the draft, Matt Mooney of Texas Tech, who agreed to play for the Hawks in Summer League, as did Nick Ward of Michigan State.
