Way-Too-Soon 2020-21 NBA Power Rankings

21. Atlanta Hawks

The Hawks have the third-fewest wins since 2017-18, so some might argue I'm giving credit where it isn't due. But how many other rebuilders have an offensive superpower like Trae Young? And an absurdly productive sidekick like John Collins? And an interior anchor like Clint Capela? And an intriguing collection of young wings, plus the sixth overall pick in the upcoming draft?

That's a long-winded way of saying I'm buying what Atlanta is selling. The Hawks need to keep rebuffing inquiries for Collins, find a way for him to co-exist with Capela, ace the No. 6 pick and further the development of this young core. That's a decent number of ifs, sure, but there isn't an outlandish goal among them.

The Atlanta Hawks believe they are ready to make the jump from cellar-dwellers to playoff contenders, and ESPN's Jalen Rose is right there with them, declaring that the team will make the playoffs this upcoming season.

"We know about Trae Young and young talent they've amassed..." Rose said on "Get Up." "But I tell you what, the Hawks did a terrific job drafting a kid from UFC. He's gonna go with [Clint] Capela. The Hawks will be a playoff team in the Eastern Conference and they're gonna create a lot of excitement."

Seriously! More than I thought. I mean one free agent like a Joe Harris or Bertan and then another minor one was what I thought was coming. We’ve never had this type of splash not ever.
