Third-String Shooting Guard: Allen Crabbe

This was a rather tough option. Though it’s highly likely that DeAndre’ Bembry will receive a ton of minutes at the two position, for now, let’s assume the team slots in Allen Crabbe as the team’s opening night third-string two guard.

Crabbe was acquired in the Taurean Prince trade, and Crabbe will likely play a similar role to what Prince played last year, just at a slightly smaller position. A career 39.3 percent shooter from deep on a lofty 54.5 percent three-point attempt rate, Crabbe should fit in neatly with the Atlanta Hawks more modern offensive approach implemented by Coach Pierce.

While Crabbe might get the nod on day one, that might be only to lift his trade value as an expiring contract if a team is in desperate need of shooting. If that’s the case and Crabbe goes, what are some other options for the team?

Other Options: DeAndre’ Bembry, Chandler Parsons, Evan Turner, Charlie Brown

As already stated, Bembry might see some time as a backup two guard should the need arise.

Another option is Chandler Parsons, who was acquired from the Memphis Grizzlies in a trade this offseason. Though not the potent offensive force he used to be in his Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks days, Parsons had been suffering from injuries for much of his Grizz tenure, so perhaps a refocused and healthy Parsons could help mentor the young guns while also pouring in some points.

While Evan Turner has been previously mentioned as the likely backup point guard to Trae Young, he has played the majority of his career as a two guard, so Turner could also slide over to the two should the need arise.

Lastly, Two Way signing Charlie Brown out of Saint Joseph’s will also likely see some spot minutes as the season progresses.
