Travis Schlenk Rumors
Mike Muscala, who the Hawks recently brought back, is the embodiment of all these traits…except he doesn’t play on the wing. If ‘Hawks University’ is a metaphorical institution worth discussing, Muscala is an alumnus for sure, but the recently re-signed forward would also have to be the first grad from a newly-established major: inside-out big man. “Mike is a valuable player for us and a great fit both on and off the floor,” General Manager Travis Schlenk said of the signing in a written statement. “He’s worked hard and improved each year, and we’re very happy he’ll continue his career with the Hawks.”
Q. I know (coach Mike Budenholzer) likes to carry a third point guard. Do you expect to sign one? Travis Schlenk: We’ll sign a third point guard. We are deciding to we get a veteran guy or do we get a young guy that we think has upside. Do we bring in a couple guys and let them battle it out? We are going to sign a power forward for sure. We’ll sign a center for sure. Probably sign three more big guys so we end up with six.
Q. Do you expect Alpha Kaba and Isaia Cordiner to go back overseas? Travis Schlenk: I think Alpha will go back to Mega Leks or another team in Europe. I haven’t really talked to his agent but I expect he’ll go back there. Cordinier has expressed a desire to play in Erie (with the NBA G League team). We’ve talked to his agent a little bit. We aren’t really sure if he’ll go back but he’s expressed a desire to maybe to that. We’ll figure all that out in the next month.
