The Atlanta Hawks made the playoffs last year despite having one of the worst records in NBA history for a team who qualified for the playoffs. So what can the Hawks do to improve on their record and continue to make it to the promised land? Let's find out.
In order for the Hawks to be contenders, Atlanta needs to improve its bench and get players who can contribute when called upon.
Scott showed the Hawks in their first-round series against the Indiana Pacers that he is worthy of a bigger role next season. Scott's 3-point shooting and defense meshed well within the Hawks' rag-tagged starting unit, and should be counted on to be a major contributor next year.
Millsap was one of, if not the best bargain free agents last year. After Horford went down, Milsap took the offense on his shoulders and became a force to be reckoned with. The Hawks would do themselves wonders if they could get the talented forward to stay in Atlanta long-term.
Teague became a top-tier point guard last season, and his star power will only continue to rise. If Teague keeps up his play, then the Hawks will be right back in the playoffs next year.
Horford is a talented center, but his health issues became a drag for Atlanta last season. With Teague and Milsap now in full command of the offense, the Hawks would be better off shipping Horford somewhere else.
