Onyeka Okongwu: Third-year option picked up

Wed, Oct 20 2021 4:28 PST

The News
The Hawks exercised Okongwu's (shoulder) $6.4 million club option for 2022-23 on Friday.

Our View
Okongwu is expected to be sidelined until some point in December after undergoing shoulder surgery in July, but the 20-year-old center showed enough promise during an injury-plagued rookie season for the Hawks to exercise his third-year option. Once healthy, Okongwu will likely challenge Gorgui Dieng for the top backup role behind starter Clint Capela.
