This pick we got from the Nets for taking Crabbe's salary.

“I think it’s just understanding our concepts and picking and choosing the spots where he can be a tremendous helper,” coach Lloyd Pierce said. “He’s not blocking a lot of shots on his own man. He’s doing it on penetration and doing it as we’re funneling the basketball to him. I just challenged our group that we know what Clint is bringing, what can we do to continue to bring guys down to him so he can be in that position more often? It’s a challenge to them to contain the basketball, to be more physical at the point of attack, and if we get beat or in a compromised position, we know we have help back there. I think he’s understanding where we want him and where we’re trying to position him and how we can help most effectively at times.”

There are still some kinks to work out with the Hawks and Capela and how they surround him. Because he’s a non-shooter, it forces John Collins to space on the perimeter, and the lanes are sometimes clogged for Trae Young to drive to the rim. Collins’ counting stats have been down from what they were last season, but he has been an impact stats king. Before Friday’s game, the Hawks were absurdly 21.4 points better with Collins on the floor than without him. Also, the Hawks are 13.6 points worse defensively with Collins off the floor, and the combination of Capela and Collins together in the frontcourt has been mostly phenomenal defensively.

Lol, I think Houston might be regretting this trade just a little bit.

Becoming a favorite for sure.
Many Hawk fans didn't know what to expect but if you watched him in Houston you did.

Thanks Harden!

Clint has been really great! Not as great as Nene but still really great! :D
My eyes glaze over when reading alternative stat (not advanced stat) narratives that go many paragraphs long. If you can not make your point in 2 paragraphs it may not be a great point. :D
