Last season, Antic thrived on offense by setting screens for ballhandlers and slipping out for a jump shot. Splitter’s role will be to set a pick and then make himself a target for a pass while stepping toward the rim. Head coach Mike Budenholzer thinks the change will help put pressure on the rim on offense. “I think we’re going to have just a little more pressure on the rim with both Tiago and Edy, and their ability to roll and collapse the defense and put pressure on the rim and play around the rim,” Budenholzer said.
Tavares signed a three-year deal to play for the Hawks last week after last year’s second-round pick spent another season playing for Gran Canaria in Spain’s ACB League. “For me, it’s a dream come true to sign with Hawks,” Tavares said. “I worked all year to sign with the Hawks. “It was difficult because I had good offers in Turkey, in Madrid, in Barcelona. It was difficult decision for me but I think I worked every week to be here with the Hawks. The Hawks came to Gran Canaria to talk to me, to speak with me, to motivate me to work. That was part of the decision to come because of the way they support and motivate me.”
