According to Hawks beat writer Chris Kirschner, "There likely will be competition as to who will start at the three between [De'Andre] Hunter and Cam Reddish."
This is a position battle to watch over the next few weeks, with Reddish offering higher per-minute fantasy upside based on last season's numbers. Hunter said he's intensely focused on defense, particularly how to play passing lanes and individual players' tendencies, so maybe his steals will tick up -- Hunter hangs his hat on defense, yet he chipped in just 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks in 32.0 minutes last year. He may not even get that much playing time now that the PF position is stacked with Danilo Gallinari backing up John Collins. Dec 02 11:52 pm (EST)
