Update: De’Andre Hunter (sore knee) is OUT for Tuesday’s game.
The Atlanta Hawks enjoyed an “off day” from Summer League on Monday but the team’s front office was quite busy. Jabari Parker arrived to provide interesting depth at forward but, in news that has a more direct impact on Las Vegas, the Hawks moved on from Omari Spellman in a deal with the Golden State Warriors. With that as the backdrop, Atlanta returns to Summer League action on Tuesday and, this time around, the team’s opponent will be the Indiana Pacers.
With Spellman out of the picture, there are fewer players to monitor with an eye on the regular season, but De’Andre Hunter and Bruno Fernando are scheduled to suit up for the second time. It will be interesting to see how the pair is able to function after getting their feet wet on Sunday and, alongside them, Jaylen Adams will look to avenge a shaky performance in his 2019 Summer League debut.
Stay tuned throughout the day for all the latest and, as usual, we encourage you to use the comments below as a “game thread” for today’s contest.
