Atlanta Hawks: 5 reasons to pass on pursuing Ben Simmons
FANSIDED says The Atlanta Hawks and the rest of the NBA are less than a week away from the start of training camp and the excitement has never been higher. The same can be said of expectations. Many outlets have projected the Hawks to finish around the fifth-seed again but it still seems low to see them below teams like the Miami Heat and, in particular, the Philadelphia 76ers.
Philly fell victim to the Hawks ascension in the second round, going out after six games. At the center of that was fallout from Ben Simmons passing up on a dunk late.
Ironically, it seems now that many believe a play for Simmons makes sense for Atlanta as they try to take the next step to an NBA Finals berth. While that might have been an avenue worth exploring at one point in time, that time has passed.
