Atlanta Hawks Stats, Odds, Standings and Schedule for 2023-24 NBA Season

Atlanta Hawks Last Season Performance

The Hawks had a relatively successful 2022-23 season despite not improving upon their record from a year prior. After firing its head coach late in the season, Atlanta finished the regular season with a record of 41-41.

The finish allowed the Hawks to compete for the playoffs as they qualified for the play-in tournament for the second year in a row. Atlanta qualified for the postseason for the third consecutive season following a defeat of Miami, but it lost to Boston in six games in the first round of the playoffs.

Atlanta Hawks Key Additions

The Hawks were part of a couple of deals in the offseason, which all resulted in them acquiring Patty Mills.

Mills is a veteran guard who brings playoff experience to the team as well. He’s a solid 3-point shooter, connecting on 38.9% from beyond the arc in his career, though he averaged just 6.2 points and 1.4 assists in 40 games last season.

Atlanta also added another veteran in Wesley Matthews, signing him to a one-year deal. The journeyman is a strong defender who averaged 3.4 points and 2.2 rebounds in limited minutes last season.

Atlanta Hawks Key Subtractions

One of the Hawks’ only losses in the offseason was John Collins, who was dealt in one of their trades and ultimately resulted in the addition of Mills.

After extending Dejounte Murray, Atlanta was running out of money and needed to move on from Collins. Though his play took a dip last season, Collins averaged 13.1 points on 50.8% shooting and 6.5 rebounds a game.

Atlanta Hawks Head Coach Analysis

The Hawks decided to fire head coach Nate McMillan late into his third season with the team after leading them to a 29-30 record going into the All-Star Break.

Though Joe Prunty was named the interim coach and went 2-0 in that time, Quin Snyder was hired soon after.

Snyder agreed to a five-year deal, including the rest of the 2022-23 season, where he led Atlanta to a 10-11 record and another playoff berth. He was previously with the Hawks in 2013-14 as their head assistant coach, when they went 38-44.

Snyder spent the last eight seasons as Utah’s head coach, accumulating a 372-264 record.

Atlanta Hawks Prediction for the 2023-24 Season

After some offseason trading and with a new coach as well, the Hawks will be looking to improve upon last season’s record and potentially earn a playoff berth without the need for the play-in tournament as well.

With not much change to the roster and a strong duo in Trae Young and Murray, Atlanta should see improvement upon last season’s record, with NBA expert picks predicting the Hawks to win over the 41.5 games set by the sportsbook.

The Hawks should also benefit from a full offseason under new head coach Snyder while a healthy season from Bogdan Bogdanovic should help as well. Making it out of the first round will still be a tough task in a strong Eastern Conference, but Atlanta should do good on the NBA odds’ prediction of returning to the playoffs.
