Atlanta Hawks head coach Nate McMillan joined Dukes & Bell to talk about the series with the Sixers and what has Kevin Huerter's versatility meant to the Hawks this season?
“I think he’s become a really good player, I watched him of course from afar last season, talking about the things that we were hoping to get from him at the beginning of the season to where he is at now I think he has become a very important player for this team,” McMillan said. “He has had to start, he has had to come off the bench, he’s played the point guard, he’s played the 2, he’s played some 3 for us, he’s played a number of different positions because of all the injuries that we’ve had this season.
“He has also been called upon to defend the 1, the 2, and the 3 positions, really he has become a very important part of this team and our rotation. With his ability to handle the ball, shoot the basketball as well as I think he’s really improved on the defensive end of the floor, it’s just allowed us to at times play, really at times three guards out on the floor with him, Bogie and Trae, and that lineup has worked for us.”
