Hawks grade: A+
The Hawks also keep their All-Star backcourt intact to try to work it around Antetokounmpo amid
potential spacing concerns with Dejounte Murray and Onyeka Okongwu on the floor.
Hardaway helps, as does keeping Bey and Bogdan Bogdanovic.
Meanwhile, for all of the consternation over Young shooting 33.5% from beyond the arc last season, he also shot 37.1% from deep after the trade deadline. He also shot 36.6% from long distance in Games 3 through 6 before getting bounced by the Boston Celtics in the first round of this past year’s playoffs.
Their draft capital comes in a little light after trading for Dejounte Murray last offseason which could lead to some interesting conversations in the front office.
They cannot offer their 2024 pick outright due to owing out their 2025 first-rounder.
But they can offer swaps in 2024 and 2031 as well as in 2028 because, while they own that pick outright, they cannot trade it unless they satisfy the parameters of the Murray trade which cannot happen until 2027 barring an adjustment. The next pick the Hawks can trade away outright is not until the 2030 draft.
They would need their prospect package to outweigh whatever any other teams were willing to offer on the off chance the Antetokounmpo does indeed follow through on his hints at vacating Milwaukee within the next few years.
