Huerter was a former first round pick by the Hawks in the 2018 NBA Draft. He has played in Atlanta for four years, racking up a career average of 11.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.2 points per game. The small forward has been decently reliable, putting up pretty consistent stats and never playing fewer than 56 games during his career in the NBA.
Harkless has been a bit of a journeyman since being drafted in 2012. He has played for Orlando, Portland, Los Angeles (Lakers), New York, Miami, Sacramento and now Atlanta. Holiday went undrafted in 2011, and bounced around from international leagues, to G League teams, to NBA teams and back again. Since 2015 (his first stint with the Hawks), he has made his mark and been able to stay on NBA rosters.
