RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Muscala remained a bit piece in the Hawks' frontcourt in 2015-16, and though he suited up for a career-high 60 contests, it actually came with the fewest minutes per game (9.4) of his three NBA seasons. The 6-foot-11 big man saw his opportunities increase once Tiago Splitter underwent season-ending hip surgery, but didn't show much overall improvement, as his rebound rate fell along with his field-goal and three-point percentages. The Hawks valued Muscala enough to exercise his $1.01 million team option for the upcoming season, but he could have a short leash if his production fails to bounce back. Splitter is expected to be back to full health near the start of the season and 7-foot-3 Walter Tavares remains an intriguing project for the organization, so the presence of those two players alone may be enough to oust Muscala from the roster.

2015-16

In his second season, Muscala mustered up 4.9 points, 3.0 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.5 blocks in 13 minutes per game through 40 games with the Hawks. He shot 55 percent from the field, 41 percent from downtown, and 88 percent from the free-throw line. During six D-League games, he contributed 12.8 points, 8.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.7 steals, and 1.0 block in 29 minutes per game. Muscala's $0.9 million contract is non-guaranteed for 2015-16, but after impressing in 10 postseason contests with averages of 4.2 points on 3.3 field goal attempts, 1.8 rebounds, 0.1 assists, 0.1 steals, and 0.3 blocks in 10 minutes per game, Muscala seems very likely to stick. The 6-11, 230-pound center also appeared in six summer league games, posting 9.8 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.2 blocks in 28 minutes per game. Though the Hawks' acquisition of Tiago Splitter puts another big man ahead of Muscala in coach Mike Budenholzer's projected rotation, Pero Antic is gone, and Mike Scott's NBA career is in question. Therefore, it is possible Muscala will earn the majority of the minutes left over by Horford, Paul Millsap, and Splitter.

2014-15

The Hawks planned to have Muscala their second-round pick in the 2013 draft play in Europe for a year or two, but frontcourt injuries forced them to accelerate Muscala's apprenticeship. Atlanta negotiated a buyout with his Spanish club and added him to the roster in early March. He appeared in 20 games down the stretch, averaging 11 minutes per game mostly at center with 3.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 0.5 blocks per contest. He apparently impressed the Hawks enough to win a role in the frontcourt this season, as Atlanta let Gustavo Ayon walk in free agency. At 6-11, Muscala is the tallest of the Hawks' center options. His biggest strength entering the league was his rebounding, but he's shown signs that he can be an efficient contributor on the offensive end. He averaged 13.8 points on 43-percent shooting in six games during the Las Vegas Summer League.
