De'Andre Hunter has had an unusual three seasons in the NBA. His rookie campaign was cut short by the pandemic. His sophomore season was marred by knee injuries. Finally, his third year saw the most consistent progress (albeit incremental gains).

The Hawks officially wagered on Hunter when they traded his 2019 Draft classmate, Cam Reddish, to the New York Knicks in January. Hunter finished the season strong and is now eligible for a rookie contract extension. Let's dissect the 24-year-old's third season.
