Four PGs. Akinjo, Clemons, Cooper, and Etienne. Then again, Coop might not play in summer league. This staff seems to care less about it than others of the past. Bud really cared about it

Watched a bunch of rocket 🚀 games a couple years ago and Clemons can put it in the hole.

All of these PGs outside of Coop got crazy range and he can really shoot lights out.

Atlanta Hawks Summer League Roster Taking Shape

Sharife Cooper, PG

Sharife Cooper makes his heralded return to Las Vegas this summer. Last year, the point guard looked good in both the Summer League and pre-season games. Unfortunately, Cooper spent most of his rookie season in the G League with the College Park Skyhawks.


AJ Griffin, SG/SF

Once again, Atlanta's front office drafted a young wing out of Duke University with a questionable injury history. AJ Griffin told the media that he had no communication with the Hawks during the pre-draft process, and general manager Landry Fields said the Hawks plan to bring the 18-year-old along slowly. But that shouldn't discourage fans about Griffin's future in the NBA.


Tyrese Martin, SF

Atlanta's front office moved back from No. 44 to No. 51 in Thursday night's draft which netted the organization $2 million (doesn't impact the salary cap). Tyrese Martin is a 23-year-old wing out of Connecticut who will likely spend most of his rookie season with the College Park Skyhawks. 

 

James Akinjo, PG


James Akinjo worked out for the Hawks on June 9. Despite going undrafted, Atlanta's front office is keeping the 21-year-old point guard in the mix.

 

Grant Golden, C

Grant Golden worked out for the Hawks on June 14. At 24 years old, the 6'11" center out of Richmond is working to make a G League roster next season. He has been called one of the passing big men in the college game.

Tyson Etienne, G

Tyson Etienne played three seasons at Wichita State before going pro. The 6'2" combo guard went undrafted but was signed on an Exhibit 10 contract with the Hawks this weekend.


Chris Clemons, PG

Chris Clemons has been in the NBA and G league for some time. The 5'9" point guard went undrafted in 2019, before spending the next two seasons with the Houston Rockets. Since that time, the 24-year-old has played in the G League.


Marcus Georges-Hunt, SG

At 28 years old, Marcus Georges-Hunt is easily the oldest player on the Hawks Summer League roster. But that shouldn't be held against the 6'6" shooting guard. Georges-Hunt has played in the NBA and G League - most recently for the College Park Skyhawks in 2022.

Did they purposely not sign any frontcourt dudes?  Or is that a reflection of having JJ and OO who would normally be in SL but, due to necessity, are with the big team?

Just wondering.

They probably aren't signing any young bigs.
