Vegas Over/Under: 25.5

Fromal’s Record Projection: 24-58 The Bet: Beneath with confidence Try to name the Atlanta Hawks’ five players after the departures of Dwight Howard and Paul Millsap. It’s not the easiest of tasks. That would be fine in the event the franchise which has made the playoffs each of the previous ten seasons were filled with talent, instead of the current situation that’s quite conducive to this dreaded”t” word.
Dennis Schroder is part of the mix, as well as newly acquired big man Dewayne Dedmon. However, who else? Kent Bazemore, Ersan Ilyasova and Taurean Prince? Will Marco Belinelli or even Luke Babbitt be in the mix if they can keep shooting as they did with the Charlotte Hornets and Miami Heat, respectively? Are we already prepared to throw John Collins?
This Atlanta roster may have some upside, but it is almost entirely devoid of established talent. The top pieces have question marks, since Schroder has not functioned as the unquestioned leader of a team, Dedmon has to play more than 17.5 minutes per game and Bazemore is coming off a disappointing campaign.
