Atlanta Hawks 2022 Summer League Roster, Dates and Full Schedule

The Atlanta Hawks have had a great season, finishing ninth in the Eastern Conference. They have won 43 games and won two play-off games. With the No. 8 seed, the Heat eliminated them in the first round.

Jimmy Butler kept the series under control, averaging 30.5 points, 7.8 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game. Trae Young became a non-factor against the Heat defense. He averaged 15.4 points, five rebounds and six assists in five games, well below his regular-season averages.

The Eagles have acquired Dejounte Murray. Murray had a phenomenal season with the San Antonio Spurs, averaging 21.1 points, 8.3 rebounds and 9.3 assists in 68 games. Murray can add tremendous value to the defense, averaging two steals per game.

The Eagles brought in Justin Holiday and Mo Harkless from the Sacramento Kings for added versatility. Their rookies AJ Griffin and Tyrese Martin also received some attention.

Martin shot 43 percent from the field in his senior season, making him a valuable asset for the Hawks.
