Staying with Atlanta
In his first season with the Hawks, Dunn played in just four regular season games as he dealt with a nagging ankle injury that delayed his debut until late April. It was unlikely that he would garner a bigger role or more money if he left, so it is no surprise to see the 27-year-old exercising his player option. The 2016 No. 5 overall pick's production has steadily declined in each year since he averaged 13.4 points, 6.0 assists and 2.0 steals during his first season with the Bulls (2017-18). If healthy, the Providence product can offer a defensive-minded presence off the bench in a backup role to Trae Young.

Gets qualifying offer from Hawks
The decision to extend the offer doesn't come as much of a surprise, as the Hawks will now have the ability to match any offer Collins receives as a restricted free agent. However, it remains to be seen how high of a price Atlanta will be willing to pay for the 23-year-old, who will likely seek a max or near-max contract on the open market. At the right price, the Hawks would likely bring Collins back, but if he ultimately signs elsewhere it could lead to larger roles for De'Andre Hunter and Onyeka Okongwu (shoulder) in 2021-22. Collins closed the 2020-21 season with averages of 17.6 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.3 made threes per game in 63 appearances.

Set to play in Summer League
Following a strong conclusion to his 2021-22 season, the second-year forward has committed to play in the Summer League. Reddish missed most of the 2020-21 season with a sore right Achilles but finished the season with averages of 11.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals.
