The Atlanta Hawks are all about giving opportunities, and that’s what they gave Jaylen Adams this season.

Stats

Adams averaged 3.2 points per game, 1.9 assists, 1.8 rebounds, 0.4 steals and 0.1 blocks.

Overall

Adams went undrafted coming into 2018, so the Hawks signed him to a two-way contract. The two-way contract let Adams have the ability to play for the Erie Bayhawks and the Hawks during the season. With the Hawks already set in guard rotation early, Adams was only needed if an injury occurred.

When Jeremy Lin’s play started to improve throughout the season, it was evident that they would end up trading or releasing him. Trae Young was also coming into his own, so the move was inevitable. The Hawks decided to move on from Lin so Young could receive more minutes. That meant Adams would be the backup point guard. Days later after the move, the Hawks decided to sign Adams to the Hawks roster.

Adams had his ups and downs when he received more minutes. Like Young, Adams is a small guard so his defense may not be the best at times.

Offensively he’s a known scorer, but he struggled with his shot during the end of the season. He ended the season shooting 34 percent from the field. Luckily he wasn’t called on to take much of a scoring role coming off the bench, so his playmaking was a big part to the offense.

You can say that things got better for him as the season progressed, and he should have more confidence heading into next season.

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?
