The Atlanta Hawks will try to sign Kevin Huerter to a contract extension this offseason. If Huerter and the Hawks are unable to agree to terms, he would become a restricted free agent in 2022. Huerter is represented by Andy Shiffman

“We’ve spoken with his agent,” Travis Schlenk said. “We’re going to get into deeper dialogue next week. His agent wanted to wait a little bit and get all his free agents signed, before he went into extensions, less time-sensitive matters like the extension, but certainly his agent and Kevin are hoping to have that dialogue and certainly we are as well… Our intention is to try and get something done with Kevin, for sure.”

Huerter averaged 11.9 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 30.8 minutes per game last season.

The Hawks were unable to agree to an extension with John Collins before the 20-21 season, but were able to agree to terms in restricted free agency.
