Updated Hawks salary cap and depth chart

The Hawks now have 13 players under contract for next season. The recent agreements with Mike Muscala and Ersan Ilyasova brings the total of returning players to seven from the roster of 15 that ended last season. The Hawks also recently agreed to terms with free agent Dewyane Dedmon and draft picks John Collins and Tyler Dorsey.

The details of the Jamal Crawford transaction have not been verified. The Hawks obtained the guard from the Clippers in a three-way trade earlier this month. Crawford was eventually bought out and waived. I have yet to receive the buyout figure. The Hawks will stretch the cap hit over two seasons and the cash payments over five seasons. The cap hit for 2017-18 will be about $11 million. Stay tuned for final details.

The Hawks have two more roster spots available. They will likely add a third point guard, according to general manager Travis Schlenk. Josh Magette has agreed to a two-way contract and the Hawks plan to add another. The two-way contracts are extra roster spots, a 17th and 18th.
