Atlanta Hawks player to watch No. 4) Admiral Schofield

More from Soaring Down South

Perhaps the most likely to push for a two-way contract is Admiral Schofield, once again assuming that one of the current two-way players earns a full deal. Schofield last played in the NBA in the 2019-20 season for the Washington Wizards.

He only played 33 games and averaged 3.0 points and 1.4 rebounds in 11.2 minutes per game. Schofield shot the ball at an acceptable rate for a rookie, going 38.0 percent from the floor and 31.1 percent from beyond the arc. This can be explained by a lack of court time with the Wizards.

Schofield’s career could have been given a kick start by the OKC Thunder last season after he was traded prior to the season commencing. Unfortunately for Schofield, he was cut prior to the roster being finalized so he did not have a chance to show his 3-point shooting prowess. He displayed this ability in college where he went 38.7 percent from beyond the arc.

Schofield represented the Greensborough Swarm in the G-League bubble last season and was not impressive. He averaged 10.1 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in 26.2 minutes per game. However, he was not good from beyond the arc, only shooting 22.7 percent. He has the most to prove of the players listed and could break out in the summer league.
