4. Thomas Bryant (Center)
In the search for a cost-effective replacement for Clint Capela, Thomas Bryant emerges as a viable candidate. Bryant showcased his skills during Anthony Davis’ absences with the Lakers, demonstrating his ability to protect the rim, rebound, and contribute offensively. It was also odd to see Bryant on a Lakers jersey and it not being Kobe. His affordability could be a key factor in the Hawks’ decision-making process.
5. Christian Wood (Forward)
This guy is a certified bucket. Christian Wood‘s career has been marked by ups and downs, but his shooting prowess and rebounding ability cannot be ignored. While there may be some risk associated with Wood, his potential impact on both ends of the court could make him a worthwhile addition to the Hawks’ roster.
6. Nikola Vucevic (Center)
Nikolas are taking over the NBA, from Jokic and Jovic to now, Vucevic.
Acquiring Nikola Vucevic would require the Hawks to part ways with Capela’s contract. However, Vucevic’s floor-spacing abilities and rebounding prowess make him an attractive option. His three-point shooting percentage of 35% adds another dimension to his game, providing the Hawks with an offensive weapon from the center position. This would be a major plus, as they lack the three point shooting with Capela.
