The Hawks’ current roster at:
• Point guards: Trae Young, Evan Turner, Jaylen Adams
• Wings: DeAndre Bembry, Allen Crabbe, Solomon Hill, Kevin Huerter, DeAndre Hunter, Cam Reddish, Charlie Brown (two-way)
• Bigs: John Collins, Alex Len, Miles Plumlee, Omari Spellman, Bruno Fernando
Schlenk said there could be future roster moves to free up a roster spot. There appears to be a need for another center with just Len and Plumlee at the spot. The Hawks filled a need for another point guard by trading Kent Bazemore for Turner. The move also created minutes on the wing for players like Huerter, Hunter and Reddish.
“We’ll see,” Schlenk said of the whether there would be room for Carter.
Carter appeared in 76 games last season, including nine starts. He averaged 7.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 17.5 minutes. As valuable as Carter was on the court, he was a veteran presence in the Hawks locker room with a roster full of young players.
The Hawks may want his stature again next season. However, clearing a spot may be an issue.
