(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images) The Golden State Warriors can boast the best shooting backcourt in NBA history having started Steph Curry and Klay Thompson at the guard spots over the majority of the last 11 years. That inarguable truth makes some recent comments by their former teammate Kevin Durant all the more confounding. The Dubs’ two-time NBA Finals MVP compared Sacramento Kings shooting guard/small forward Kevin Huerter to Curry and Thompson based on his play through roughly 20 percent of the 2022-23 regular season. The Boardroom Twitter account posted video of Durant’s comments on Wednesday, November 22. "Kevin Heurter, right now, he's playing like Klay, Steph. If you're not a basketball fan and locked in on the league, you gotta watch how Kevin Heurter is shooting this ball right now."@KDTrey5 sees what they're doing in Sacramento. ???? ????

    Former Maryland men’s basketball and Mount Saint Joseph standout agreed to re-sign with the Indiana Pacers on a two-year deal worth $9.6 million on Friday, according to ESPN. After the Phoenix Suns drafted Smith 10th overall in 2020, he played 56 games (five starts) before getting traded to the Pacers at the trade deadline for forward Torrey Craig. Smith blossomed in Indiana, averaging 13.4 points and 7.6 rebounds on 53.1% shooting from the floor in 22 games. Smith played two seasons with the Terps, averaging 13.5 points and 8.6 rebounds per game. He began catching the attention of NBA scouts during his sophomore season when he averaged a double-double (15.7 points and 10.5 rebounds) while knocking down 36.8% of his 3-point attempts. Smith was a McDonald’s All-American at Mount Saint Joseph in Baltimore and was one of the top recruits in the country. He was The Baltimore Sun’s All-Metro Player of the Year as a senior after averaging 23 points, 12.5 rebounds and three blocks per game in leading the No. 4 Gaels to a 31-8 mark. He finished his...
    The Atlanta Hawks have traded Kevin Huerter to the Sacramento Kings, suggesting a bigger move is on the horizon for this contending franchise. While the Sacramento Kings have traded for wing Kevin Huerter, the Atlanta Hawks could be up to something once again in the early stages of NBA free agency. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Friday afternoon that Atlanta was sending Huerter to Sacramento in exchange for former wing Justin Holiday, veteran small forward Mo Harkless and a future first-round pick. Holiday will get to play alongside one of his younger brothers Aaron, who just signed a one-year deal to play for the Hawks.

    Getty Kevin Huerter, Boston Celtics Free agency officially opens on June 30, but it looks like the trade market is where the fireworks are currently set to go off. And the Boston Celtics should look to get into the mix, according to NBC Sports Boston’s Darren Hartwell. Following the Atlanta Hawks trade for Dejounte Murray, it looks like the Hawks aren’t done rebuilding their roster, and Forsberg proposes taking advantage of their lack of guard depth to bring in Kevin Huerter and resolve some of the Celtics’ perimeter scoring issues. I imagine any Huerter deal works so that the Celtics use the Fournier tpe to bring him in and then they send out Theis to create a new tpe at ~$8.5 million and keep the tpe cycle going… obviously with draft picks whatever else would be involved — Micah Sharon (@MicahSharon2013) June 30, 2022 “Stevens may not want to break up a core group that just reached the NBA Finals. But Atlanta doesn’t have much guard depth behind Murray and Trae Young, so perhaps Boston could package Payton...
    Getty Kevin Huerter of the Atlanta Hawks, who was linked to the Boston Celtics. As the Boston Celtics get set to embark on a very important offseason, they’ll have a few ways of acquiring talent. One is through the NBA Draft, which has come in gone, another is using their $6.3 million MLE, and the last is their myriad of trade exceptions. Boston’s biggest trade exception is worth $17.1 million, which they acquired when Evan Fournier joined the New York Knicks last offseason. This opens up a ton of opportunities for the Celtics, who will likely look to add even more depth to a team that just went all the way to the NBA Finals. One potential target the Celtics could go after is Atlanta Hawks wing Kevin Huerter. According to Darren Hartwell of NBC Sports Boston, Huerter is someone the Celtics should seriously consider targeting this summer with their TPE. “Huerter and [Terrence] Ross are both enticing targets. The Celtics and Hawks reportedly discussed a trade involving Huerter and Smart back in February, and the 23-year-old wing...
    Getty Kevin Huerter, Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics Shooting has been the Boston Celtics‘ biggest weakness over the last 12 months, and played a part, however small, in their eventual post-season downfall against the Golden State Warriors. Luckily, the off-season will give Brad Stevens and the front office the opportunity to revamp their roster, plugging the few holes the team’s rotation currently has. Unfortunately, Boston doesn’t project to have much cap space to play with, and will likely enter discussions armed with the taxpayer mid-level exception of around $6.3 million, and a plethora of traded player exceptions.  I'm ready for Celtics off-season talk. Give me all the ring chasing veterans on 1 year deals Brad can handle baby. Give me the Kevin Huerter TPE talk. Give me the MLE speculation. All of it. It's going to be a fun decade, Celtics fans. — partlyglouberman (@Tegridygloub) June 17, 2022 Still, finding the right players, and enticing them to Boston requires effort, scouting, and finding a way to make the money work.

    ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Hawks agreed Monday to a four-year, $65 million contract extension with guard Kevin Huerter, locking up another important player from the team that made a surprising run to the Eastern Conference final. Huerter was the last piece in the Hawks’ offseason list of priorities, working out the rookie-scale extension shortly before Monday’s 6 p.m. deadline. The season begins Tuesday. ESPN first reported the deal, which begins with the 2022-23 season, and Hawks confirmed it in an evening news release. “It was important to our group to secure Kevin as a part of our team moving forward,” general manager Travis Schlenk said. “He’s developed into a versatile, two-way player who can fit any lineup and can play minutes all over the perimeter. We are excited his future is in Atlanta.” The 23-year-old Huerter was the No. 19 overall pick in the 2018 draft that also brought Trae Young to Atlanta. Huerter’s role has steadily grown over his three years in the league. Last season, the 6-foot-7 player averaged 11.9 points, 3.5 assists, 3.3 rebounds and a...

That makes sense considering this is a young group poised accomplish more. Just 23, Huerter is a good 3-point shooter with enough all-around game. At some point, the Hawks might decide curtail their spending at shooting guard. Starter Bojan Bogdanovic is earning $18 million annually and can opt out in 2023. Cam Reddish will be a (likely restricted) free agent that summer if he doesn’t sign an extension next offseason. However it...
    Kevin Huerter doesn’t seem destined for NBA stardom. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t incredibly important to the present and future of the Atlanta Hawks. The act would be incredibly corny, but it would be fitting. You could give Kevin Huerter a nickname like the Hold Steady and you would have summed up his career trajectory. He’s three years into his NBA career. No statistical leaps have really been taken, but there has been very little backpedaling either. He’s here where he’s always been. He’s putting up roughly the same numbers he did during his first two years and the two years before that at the University of Maryland. That steadiness is admirable. That steadiness is desired from a player taken with the No. 18 pick three years ago. While Kevin Huerter approaches the plateau of his basketball abilities, it should be noted he is doing so on an up-and-coming team. The Atlanta Hawks pawned off the pieces to a regular-season contender a few years ago, and while that team made one Eastern Conference Finals with Al Horford and Paul...

    As proposed in a recent scenario from NBA Analysis Network, the Atlanta Hawks could make another significant move ahead of the March trade deadline by acquiring Pascal Siakam from the Toronto Raptors for a package centered on promising big man John Collins. As explained by the publication on Wednesday, the Hawks already did a lot to improve their roster during the offseason, landing players such as Danilo Gallinari and Rajon Rondo and giving Collins and third-year point guard Trae Young a considerably better supporting cast. However, the outlet also speculated that Atlanta could also “flip” one of these two up-and-coming stars for someone more skilled, with Collins being a far more likely candidate due to the fact he recently turned down a long-term contract extension. In its recommended deal, NBA Analysis Network suggested that the Hawks could offer Collins, reserve wingman Kevin Huerter, and one first-round pick each from the 2021, 2023, and 2025 drafts in exchange for Siakam. This theoretical move, as speculated, could give Atlanta a big man with championship experience, as well as a potential upgrade over...
    Since the departure of Anthony Davis last summer, rumors have been continuously swirling around Jrue Holiday and his future with the New Orleans Pelicans. No matter how many times they insist that they still consider him as part of their long-term plan, most people see Holiday as one of the most coveted players on the trade market in the 2020 offseason. Once he becomes officially available on the trading block, he is highly likely to receive strong interests from teams that are looking to improve their backcourt and want to add star power on their roster this fall. Among the potential suitors of Holiday in the 2020 offseason is the Atlanta Hawks. According to Aaron Kellerstrass of Fansided’s Pelican Debrief, the Hawks may consider sending a package that includes Dewayne Dedmon, Kevin Huerter, and the No. 6 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft to the Pelicans in exchange for Holiday. If the deal becomes a reality, Kellerstrass believes that it would help both teams in filling up the needs to improve on their roster. “In this trade the Pelicans...
    In 2018, the Atlanta Hawks drafted their franchise point guard in Trae Young. But their second pickup from that year’s draft always goes under the radar. Kevin Huerter, a shooting guard from the University of Maryland, was picked 19th overall. He admitted in a recent interview that, like every other rookie, he got a “welcome to the NBA moment” but it came from former MVP Kevin Durant. Huerter said, “We were playing at Golden State. So I’m guarding Durant. He has the ball inside halfcourt so I’m trying to pressure him. He loses the ball and it goes out to halfcourt. So in my mind, I’m thinking like ‘Oh, I’m doing alright.’ So I go out to halfcourt and still try to pressure him and then he takes a three-dribble hesi-pullup where I’m right on him, pulls up right inside the 3-pt line and just knocks down the easiest two. Like back rim straight down. And he’s backpedaling on defense and he just yells out “Welcome to the league, rook.”  He came up to me after the game and...
    Armed with intriguing trade assets, the Golden State Warriors are expected to make major roster upgrades in the 2020 NBA offseason. If their superstar target won’t be available on the trade market this fall, the Warriors could use their precious future draft picks to acquire quality players that complement their core of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Andrew Wiggins. One of the potential trade partners for the Warriors is the Atlanta Hawks. According to Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report, the Warriors could acquire John Collins and Kevin Huerter from the Hawks by sending a trade package that includes Kevon Looney, Jordan Poole, a 2020 first-round pick, and a 2021 second-round pick to Atlanta. Collins and Huerter may still be young, but Buckley believes that both of them are capable of helping the Warriors achieve their goal of reclaiming the NBA championship title in the 2020-21 NBA season. “Collins’ pick-and-roll finishing and budding floor spacing (career-high 40.1 three-point percentage) would be even better weaponized on the Warriors, where he could play off Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green....
