    Derrickson, 6-foot-7, played 11 games for the Warriors last season and averaged 4.2 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.1 minutes after his two-way contract was converted. He also appeared in 35 games for the Santa Cruz Warriors in the G League and averaged 13.7 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 27.2 minutes

    Derrrickson played three seasons at Georgetown and went undrafted in 2018.

    Peachtree Hoops: Atlanta Hawks roundtable: What are your expectations for Kevin Huerter's sophomore season?

    In the doldrums of summer, the Peachtree Hoops staff came together for a 10-part roundtable series, answering a series of prompts with an eye toward the upcoming season for the Atlanta Hawks.

    Part four aims to set reasonable expectations for the second season of Kevin Huerter's career.

    Jeff Siegel: As encouraging as it would be to see his numbers tick up across the board, the most important number to me for Huerter this season is his usage. He has a real chance to be an all-around offensive force for the Hawks moving forward, but he's going to have to get those ball handling reps early in his career to develop into that player.

    Fansided: Atlanta Hawks: Exploring De'Andre Hunter's Advanced Statistics

    When the Atlanta Hawks took De'Andre Hunter at #4 overall, the reaction was mostly negative due to the fact that the team had to give up so much in order to move up from #8 to #4. However, if General Manager Travis Schlenk wanted to draft Hunter, he deserves the benefit of the doubt at this point.

    Obviously, Hawks owner Tony Ressler agreed as Schlenk was given a contract extension and promoted to President of Basketball Operations this week.

    The pick of Hunter is one that will take time to develop, as this Hawks squad is still young, but let's take a look at Hunter's sophomore season through the lens of some advanced statistics.

    Fansided: Atlanta Hawks: John Collins Usage Rate Rose Drastically Last Season

    The Atlanta Hawks picked up perhaps the steal of the 2017 NBA Draft when they selected John Collins out of Wake Forest University all the way at #19 overall. Collins was taken behind players such as Frank Ntilikina, Zach Collins, Luke Kennard, Justin Jackson, Justin Patton and T.J. Leaf - who was taken with the pick directly ahead of JC.

    Collins went on to become one of the most productive young big men in the league and nearly averaged 20 points and 10 rebounds last season (19.

    Fansided: Atlanta Hawks: Trae Young Faced 5th-Most Double Teams in NBA Last Season

    The Atlanta Hawks found a treasure and franchise cornerstone in the 2018 NBA Draft by selecting Trae Young at #5 overall. Though, of course, General Manager Travis Schlenk was laughed off the internet for trading away Slovenian prodigy Luka Doncic, that move happened to work out for both sides - even to the point where more credence should've been given to naming them Co-Rookies of the Year.

    Digression aside, Trae Young blew expectations out of the water and was easily one of the best rookies in the NBA - as well as the best rookie in Hawks franchise history.

    Fansided: Atlanta Hawks: Exploring Playoff Picture for 2019-20

    The Atlanta Hawks have not been to the playoffs since the 2016-17 season, which was typified by the ill-conceived Dwight Howard experiment and Paul Millsap's final year in Atlanta.

    Though two recent projections by ESPN and BBall Index do not put much stock into the team's status as playoff contenders in 2019-20, what does the team's schedule look like from that perspective?

    October's slate of games features matchups against the Orlando Magic, who had the Hawks' number last year, as well as the Philadelphia 76ers, who added quite a few new players - including notable Hawks killer Josh Richardson.

    Peachtree Hoops: Atlanta Hawks roundtable: Will either John Collins or Trae Young make the All-Star team?

    In the doldrums of summer, the Peachtree Hoops staff came together for a 10-part roundtable series, answering a series of prompts with an eye toward the upcoming season for the Atlanta Hawks.

    Part three discusses the possibility of All-Star appearances for Atlanta's top duo.

    Jeff Siegel: Young has a real chance this year with the counting stats and the lack of high-end guards in the Eastern Conference. There will be at least four guards on the team and three near-locks: Bradley Beal, Kemba Walker, and Kyrie Irving. With Victor Oladipo injured for at least the first two months of the year, there may just be room for Young to put up the kind of numbers that garner All-Star consideration.

    Peachtree Hoops: Atlanta Hawks projected for 10th-place finish by ESPN

    Much has been made of ESPN's RPM projections tempering enthusiasm surrounding the Atlanta Hawks. On Wednesday, a panel of experts from the worldwide leader combined for a friendlier evaluation of Lloyd Pierce's team.

    As part of ESPN's summer forecast, the group voted on the projected order of finish in the Eastern Conference and the Hawks landed in the No. 10 spot. The projection came with a record of 34-48 and, while Atlanta was seven games out of the No. 8 spot (held by Orlando), the voting did have the Hawks narrowly out-pacing their consensus Las Vegas over/under projection.

    Fansided: Atlanta Hawks: Alex Len Aiming for Most Improved Player Award in 2019-20

    After the best season of his career last year, center Alex Len of the Atlanta Hawks is setting his sights on an even loftier goal in the 2019-20 season.

    Per a recent story by Chris Kirschner of The Athletic, one of Len's trainers has set a rather inspiring goal for Len in what will be his seventh season in the league:

    "One of the trainers at Core4 asked Len what his goal for the season was, and he replied that he wanted to be the league's Most Improved Player this year," per Kirschner's story.
