The Atlanta Hawks are looking to improve their roster this offseason after making a surprising playoff run last season. Let's look at the updated depth chart of the Hawks and see if there is any improvement.

Jeff Teague is the unquestioned starter here, proving last season that he can be an All-Star caliber playmaker. The team does need to find a quality backup, however, after Lou Williams decided to head north to Canada. Dennis Schroder is a relative unknown.

SG: Kyle Korver, Lamar Patterson, John Jenkins

Kyle Korver will be the starter again at shooting guard, while Lamar Patterson will be the backup. John Jenkins could also see playing time here next season. But let it be known that this is still one of the weakest positions on this team.

SF: Thabo Sefolosha, John Salmons, DeMarre Carroll, Cartier Martin

Thabo Sefolosha was an odd pickup for the Hawks, but nevertheless, he will be penciled in as the starting small forward. John Salmons can give them scoring off the bench, as can Carroll and Martin. This is the second deepest position on the Hawks.

PF: Paul Millsap, Elton Brand, Gustavo Ayon, Adreian Payne, Mike Scott

Paul Millsap will be the starter here, as he carried the Hawks on his back last season to the playoffs. Brand and Scott can also provide good minutes here, as can Ayon and Payne. This is the Hawks' most talented and deepest position.

C: Al Horford, Pero Antic, Mike Muscala

Al Horford will be the starter here, but there is a great chance he could also be traded. Antic has proven that he can be a reliable figure in the middle. Muscala could also see some time here.
