‘Out of PO’ Atlanta general manager “will bring in an All-Star to back up Young”

Atlanta’s general manager is quick to announce his aspirations for next season.

The Atlanta Hawks fell 116-131 to the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the 2023-2024 NBA Play-In Tournament on Monday night (Feb. 18) at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

The loss ended Atlanta’s 2023-2024 토토사이트 추천 season with the team being eliminated from the playoffs.

It was a season that left a lot to be desired for Atlanta. The Hawks had a lot of resources, including Dijonte Murray and franchise star Trae Young, whom they acquired in a trade from the San Antonio Spurs the previous season, plus Clint Capela, Bogdan Bogdanovic, and DeAndre Hunter.

It was also the first full season under new head coach Quin Snyder after firing Nate McMillan, who had a falling out with Young.

But the results were the same. Young and Murray struggled to coexist, and both players were better when playing separately. Capela and Hunter were plagued by injuries throughout the season. The lone bright spot was third-year player Jaylen Johnson. Johnson came into full bloom in his third season and developed into a solid forward option.

Without him, Atlanta fans would have had little to look forward to this season.

The problem is the offseason. After disappointingly missing the playoffs, Atlanta is already hearing a lot of rumors.

From rumors that franchise star Young is for sale, to rumors that Murray will be traded, and more.

After the game against Chicago, Atlanta head coach Landry Fields responded. “Young and we recognize that we need another All-Star next to him,” Fields said.

What Fields meant was that the team will bring in an All-Star to help Young this offseason.

The question is the price. Atlanta gave up multiple first-round picks to San Antonio when it traded Murray. Young, Murray, and Johnson are the only players on Atlanta’s roster that aren’t draft picks that are attractive to other teams. It’s questionable whether moving them and adding an All-Star would be a significant upgrade.

Atlanta’s moves this summer will be interesting to watch. What will the front office do?
