No matter how difficult it was to conclude that trading Dejounte Murray was necessary, Atlanta Hawks general manager Landry Fields knows he faces more challenges this offseason.

That leaves the Hawks with an overstocked roster and the possibility that more veterans could leave Atlanta.“It was hard decisions, challenging,” Fields said. “We knew that where we ultimately want to be was going to require some challenging decisions. ... So from now until the start of the season, we’ll have some more tough decisions to make."

He can block some shots.”, a 2022 second-round draft pick who was part of the package of veterans acquired from the Pelicans, said Risacher “has got a lot of potential to be really great.
