The Atlanta Hawks had somewhat of an eventful week to start off. As we get closer to training camp, things should be ramping up in basketball.

Dewayne Dedmon

The Hawks announced on social media that Dewayne Dedmon is progressing from his injury he suffered weeks ago. He is now out of his walking boot and will be re-evaluated in two weeks. Training camp is in less than two weeks, so he may be held out for some short time.

Lucky for the Hawks, they have some depth behind him while he is gone. Alex Len might be the favorite to take his reps until he gets back, and they also have Miles Plumlee. We’ll see how things go in the upcoming weeks.

Shelden Williams

The Hawks have someone familiar joining their family but in the G-League. Former first-round pick Shelden Williams is now an assistant coach for the Erie Bayhawks. In 2006, the Hawks took Williams with the fifth pick in the draft. In 2008, he was in a multi-team trade that sent him to the Sacramento Kings for Mike Bibby.

Lloyd Pierce

Coach Pierce held a coaching clinic earlier in the week. Not only was he able to speak to the coaches and give tips, but they also got on the court and played some games. Pierce is doing a good job so far of getting involved in as much as he can with the Hawks. This is looking like a great hire for the team, now we just have to see how he does when it’s time to suit up.

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?
