Dejounte Murray, Atlanta Hawks

The Atlanta Hawks will almost certainly be one of the most active teams this offseason. They have the No. 1 overall pick and have every reason to rebuild after the Trae Young-Dejounte Murray experiment blew up in their faces.

Murray is on a very team-friendly contract that goes out all the way to the end of the 2026-27 season. He makes $25.5 million for next season, making it easier for Milwaukee to match salaries. A deal involving Portis, Connaughton, and another young player, on top of an unprotected draft pick should be enough to get it done.

The 27-year-old combo guard didn't quite work out in Atlanta but he is still a valuable player. He has steadily improved his three-point shot, hitting a career-high 2.6 threes last season on 36.3% shooting. He can run a pick-and-roll, create shots for others, and score in a variety of ways.

Defensively, he is not the wrecking ball he used to be when he was in San Antonio but he is still an above-average option there, making him a good fit next to Lillard. He can take on the tough defensive assignments on the perimeter while Lillard can conserve his energy for the offensive end.
