Prospect Highlight - Skal Labissiere 

Post#1 » by graymule » Thu Sep 24, 2020 9:30 pm

:D

I know. He's already a Hawk. Still, he is pretty much unknown to most of us who only follow Atlanta and not all the NBA teams.
He has been one of ours for a while, yet he's never played as a Hawk. Reports from the current workouts is that he's there and looking good.

As we consider all the wonderful draft picks to choose from and all the free agents we would like to see in a Hawk uniform, don't completely ignore Skal. (He's our answer to Luka!) Seriously, he's kinda like Luka, just not as good. We can dream! keep watching!

Yeah seems like he’s getting a contract.

Only issue I have with Skal is his injury concerns. He's the optimal backup center: young, cheap, and could start in a pinch.

Hopefully Chelsea Lane can keep him healthy.

Travis really, really likes this player. Seems that Lloyd is finding him to be to his liking too. I was kinda joking when I compared him to Dallas' All star that we traded to them for Trae & Cam.

Still, keep an eye on Skal and see that he does have some of the same skills. May be like comparing the family sedan to a hot sports car. But, remember. Both get you from point a to point b. Both these players have that soft touch, can score from near and far, have the ability to take over a game for a brief period and are well liked by their team.

Skal is a free agent. If we don't sign and keep him, I, for one, will be sorely disappointed.

I believe we keep Skal. Now, if we could draft Haliburton to back up Trae and play a little #2 guard - - Wow!
Let's see if the Hawk brain thrust can agree with this old man.

Wondered why Skal speaks French. Haiti is French and Creole. Capela is Swiss. Swiss speak German, French and Italian depending on the canton. French is good. Maybe add Hayes and make it Les Hawks lol

I've always liked Skal ever since he became a Hawk. One reason we got him was his injury. Seems to have finally healed.
In my opinion, Skal will look like a steal by Travis this season. And, he has told us that he wants to be here.
