1. Joe Harris

While Joe Harris certainly isn’t the elite wing defender the Hawks need, he would certainly improve the teams three-point shooting. Harris for his career is a 42.3 percent three-point shooter which would help improve the teams shooting tremendously. Not to mention, Harris is far from a bad defender. He provides a high level of effort and a respectable amount of defense on NBA wings.

He would also fit in perfectly for the Hawks, either in a starting capacity as a souped-up Kevin Huerter, or off the bench alongside Huerter straight killing teams from behind the arch. Joe Harris alongside Trae Young, Kevin Huerter, John Collins and with the assumed improvement from both Cam Reddish and De’Andre Hunter, the Hawks would be a really solid three-point shooting team next season which would drastically improve their chances of reaching the post-season.

This season Joe Harris averaged 13.9 points per game with shooting splits of .471/.412/.747 and this was a down year for Harris in terms of his percentages. Harris is a knockdown shooter, a solid all-around scorer, a good defender and a great locker room guy by all accounts. He would be a perfect fit for the Atlanta Hawks and would fit with the timeline at just 28 years old. Let’s hope the Hawks see it that way too.
