The Hawks have extended Kevin Huerter, a versatile player capable of plugging in basically anywhere they need him.
He’s a great passer + 3-point shooter, blossomed as a defender last year and showed he can deliver in big games:

My initial reaction to Kevin Huerter’s extension is it’s great value for the Hawks. I think he’s one of the better young wings in the NBA. He showed last season that he’s continuing to grow defensively, can be trusted with the ball and has the potential to shoot 40% from 3. – 5:38 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
I spoke with Kevin Huerter last week about his growth in the league and where he wants to take his game next. He’s now secured with a four-year, $65 million contract extension with the Hawks.

Can confirm Kevin Huerter and the Hawks have agreed to a 4-year, $65 million contract extension.
@Adrian Wojnarowski first. – 5:29 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Kevin Huerter and the Hawks have agreed to a four-year, $65 million contract, league sources told @The Athletic. – 5:28 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
We’re under an hour away from the deadline for a contract extension for Kevin Huerter. Conversations between Huerter’s representation and the Hawks are still ongoing, per sources. – 5:13 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Asked Nate McMillan what Jalen Johnson/Sharife Cooper have shown him:
“They got talent…. They do have potential.”
Says both have a lot of guys in front of them though, in terms of the rotation. Adds they’ve both added great energy in practices/preseason games. – 1:29 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
I asked Nate McMillan what he thought about attending the @Braves game the other night:
“A hell of a game, really a hell of an experience. I’ve been a Braves fan since the 80s, living in NC, that was the closest baseball team to us.” – 1:15 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Nate McMillan on Kevin Huerter, with the deadline to extend Huerter approaching:
“You hope that we can get Kevin signed and extended and we can move forward, everybody can just start to focus on the season. But that’s a situation Kevin and the organization are working out.” – 1:12 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
The Hawks and Kevin Huerter have until 6 pm to agree to an extension otherwise he’ll possibly enter restricted free agency next offseason.
Nate McMillan: “You hope that we can get Kevin signed and extended.” – 1:07 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Last season, Trae Young played just under 34 MPG. With the added depth, could that decrease a little bit?
Nate McMillan: “We’re in this thing to win. Whatever minutes Trae needs to be on the floor is the minutes he’ll play. … Shit, if he needs to play 40, he’ll play 40.” – 1:04 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Gallo (left shoulder soreness) didn’t practice today — as of now, he’s the only question mark for the Hawks as far as availability for opening night, per Nate McMillan (in addition to Okongwu who is out until most likely January). – 1:00 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Nate McMillan said that he is hopeful that he’ll have everyone but Onyeka Okongwu available for the opener.
The one question mark is Danilo Gallinari, who did not practice today. – 12:59 PM
