2013 Free Agents Atlanta Hawks Should Be Watching Down the Stretch

Whether Josh Smith stays in Atlanta or not, the Hawks need to target other hot free agents over the summer.

The Atlanta Hawks did not make huge news once they decided to keep forward Josh Smith after the trade deadline expired last month.

Well, there’s always the summer.

The big date to look for now is June 30, when teams and players can make final offers. And there is a nice selection of players the Hawks can shop for in order to spruce up their roster.

Some players, like Smith, are unrestricted free agents who are entitled to go anywhere they please with no limitations. Smith is currently making $13.2 million.

There are also the restricted free agents, who are usually given qualifying offers after their four-year rookie contracts are up. Hawks point guard Jeff Teague is a prime example of this. 

Atlanta has suffered from lacking a true big man for a long time now, so the main focus should be toward the power forwards and centers up for grabs.

Still, there are plenty of other players who could make an impact on the Hawks for next season.
