The Hawks, who can easily clear about $24 million in cap space, have positioned themselves as a dumping ground as they rebuild. Atlanta will take bad contracts – with sweeteners (draft picks and/or young players) attached.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
Muscala can shoot 3-pointers and defend inside and on the perimeter. He’s nowhere near elite, but he’s a competent rotation player in the modern NBA.
When teams shop bad contracts with the primary goal of acquiring an expiring contract, Muscala (and Dedmon) will give Atlanta an advantage by also being able to contribute on the floor.
