ATLANTA — On the heels of FX renewing Stone Mountain native Donald Glover’s show "Atlanta" for a fourth season. It looks like the Atlanta Hawks also want in on the fun.
While fans will have to wait longer for the return of the series, the team took to social media Monday to announce the release of their 2019-2020 schedule by using the “Atlanta" FX theme.
“Atlanta” stars Glover, Brian Tyree Henry, Zazie Beetz, and Lakeith Stanfileld.
The FX Productions comedy is executive produced by Paul Simms, Dianne McGunigle, Hiro Murai, and Donald Glover’s brother Stephen Glover.
Instead of calling it “Robbin Season”, the team cleverly named it “Season 51: Hoopin' Season”
Four of the top 10 players selected in the 2019 NBA Draft are scheduled to make their preseason debuts.
First-year Hawks De’Andre Hunter (No. 4 overall), Cam Reddish (No. 10 overall) and Bruno Fernando (No. 34 overall) will face off against New Orleans’ rookies Zion Williamson (No. 1 overall pick), Jaxson Hayes (No. 8 overall) and Nickeil Alexander-Walker (17th overall). Reddish and Williamson were college teammates at Duke last season, helping the Blue Devils to a 32-6 finish, the No. 1 national ranking for much of the season and the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament.
Atlanta’s Trae Young (unanimous 2019 First Team All-Rookie), John Collins (back-to-back Rising Stars Participant) and Kevin Huerter (2019 Second Team All-Rookie selection) are also set to suit up in the club’s first exhibition contest of 2019-20.
