4. De’Andre Hunter

If there’s one thing that DeAndre Hunter has been able to do through the first few years of his career, it’s score the basketball. The big question is whether or not there is another level to his game that would help him reach star potential in this league. And, at least for now, I’m not sure there’s an easy way to answer that question. But even for what he is now, a valuable third or fourth-best player on a playoff team, he holds really good trade value on the open market.

Even more so considering he just signed a contract extension with the team and is under contract for the next four seasons. Coming off a season in which he averaged 15 points and four rebounds on 46 percent shooting from the field and 35 percent shooting from 3-point range, Hunter seems to be a key cog for the team moving forward.

Though, if the Hawks were to make a big change during the offseason, you’d imagine that they’ll be adding a wing. And that could end up coming at the expense of Hunter.
