Atlanta Hawks offseason improvement for Kevin Huerter No.3) Aggressiveness 

Huerter did have his ups and downs this season, much of that was due to his aggressiveness at times. This was especially so at the start of the year when Huerter was in the starting lineup. He was very spotty, passing up open looks and sometimes deferring too much.

This then led to him not being as confident in his shot and struggling. When  Bogdan Bogdanovic came back, coach McMillan wanted Huerter running the bench unit and this is when he was able to play his game.

He then started to become more confident and started to play more like the player we know he can be. This is why Game 7 against the Philadelphia 76ers was no surprise, Young was struggling and Huerter had stepped up in a huge way. He had 27 points, seven rebounds, three assists, and a steal. He became the aggressor and it paid off. He dominated his matchup against Seth Curry because of this aggression.

Huerter has the skills required and is capable of having those performances more often. He just has to be aggressive and take what other teams give him. Not just offensively either, he can also a disruptive force on defense, creating turnovers.

He should be able to average close to 2.0 steals and 1.0 blocks a game. Huerter has the chance to be the ultimate x-factor for the Atlanta Hawks for years to come, especially if he makes these improvements.
