Chris Kirschner: The Hawks are expected to bring in Tennessee guard Jaden Springer and Oregon guard Chris Duarte for draft workouts in the final days leading up to next Thursday’s draft, @The Athletic has learned.
For example: Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young ($6.6 million) is still on his rookie-scale deal, but his real-time contract value is $37.4 million, according to ProFitX projections. “We’re trying to be neutral,” said Ebrahim, who notes that Young “blew the roof off the model” based on the guard’s performance in the playoffs. “We’re trying to help athletes get paid while trying to help teams be smart about how they build their rosters.”
The Hawks made several other moves: * Dipesh Mistry was promoted from video coordinator to coaching assistant. * Paul Jesperson was promoted from assistant video coordinator to player development coach. * Tim Dather was hired as head video coordinator/player development. * Takahiro Uchida was hired to the athletic performance team as assistant athletic trainer. * Dotun Akinwale Jr. was promoted to senior director of player personnel. * Kira Tillinghast was hired full-time as the player engagement coordinator.
