Overall

When Dewayne Dedmon arrived in Atlanta in 2017, his game was nearly complete as it was now. The coaching staff knew he had potential, and he was able to unleash that throughout the season. He became a 3-point shooter, and his athleticism helped keep up to the Hawks pace. Dedmon built off of that this season and was one of the most consistent Hawk throughout the year.

He greatest asset has definitely been his perimeter shooting. This allowed the Hawks to have options when it came to the pick and roll. Instead of rolling, Dedmon could just pop out on the three-point line, and the other team would have to decide to leave him or Trae. Dedmon’s mid-range game was also good, as he shot 49 percent from the field.

Another thing that Dedmon provided was a solid defense. With a young team still learning defensive schemes, it was good to have some players that could hold their own. He averaged 1.1 steals and blocks per game, which are career highs. It’s not many centers that are able to step out and shoot, and also play an important role on the defensive side of the ball.

With Dedmon set to become a free agent this offseason, and it will be interesting to see what the market will be like for him. For a player at his position to be versatile on both sides, there will be many contenders waiting to sign Dedmon. If the Hawks are able to re-sign him, he will continue to be a big asset to the Hawks and will open up things for others on the team.

Mediocrity and heartbreak. That’s what your life consists of being an Atlanta sports fan, and I’ve lived it for years now. The Atlanta Hawks have been labeled as mediocre for 10 years straight. Even when they were one of the best teams in 2015, they were swept by the Cavaliers in the Conference Finals. The Falcons are nothing different. Mediocre enough to get to the playoffs, and then vulnerable enough to break your hearts at the end. I know you watched the Super Bowl. So as an Atlanta fan you’re either going to get one or the other. It’s sad to say, but I’m numb to it. One day we’ll break this curse, the question is when?
