The Hawks managed to achieve a lot of their offseason goals in just one transaction. They managed to ensure bench production with the acquisition of Wright and they got rid of the dead salary which was being paid to Dunn and Fernando.

While they added an extra $2.0 million to their cap sheet, barring injury this is Wright is going to be a solid contributor. The good thing for the Hawks is that they are only looking to give John Collins big money this season so they are able to afford to add a bit more money to their cap sheet.

If the Hawks are going to try and repeat the success of last season they are going to need to bring most of the team back from last season. They have started to upgrade the roster over last season already and given that they have an offseason to work on their chemistry.

While they did trade away the player who Okongwu was competing for minutes with until the All-Star break, the Hawks seem to have a plan for that. It is possible that they will try and use Jalen Johnson in this role until Okongwu returns with Collins sliding to the pivot, assuming he returns.

Next. Could the Hawks use Jalen Johnson to replace Okongwu's production. dark
