The Hawks might give Dunn $9,772,350 via the room exception. Maybe, that’s Dunn’s take care of rounding within the reporting. Or possibly it’s truly $10 million, which might lower into Atlanta’s cap area. A $10 million contract might have given the Hawks an edge over different room-exception presents.
Dunn might again up Trae Younger at level guard. That’s the place Dunn prefers to play. Nevertheless, Atlanta might all the time signal one other backup level guard and play Dunn on the wing, the place his distinctive perimeter protection would nonetheless shine. Dunn’s clunky outdoors capturing limits him with the ball in his arms.
No matter position they envision for him, the Hawks received’t should sweat out an identical interval. The Bulls declined to make Dunn a restricted free agent.
