Former Maryland men’s basketball standout Kevin Huerter is an already established NBA player, which was proven when he signed a 4-year $65 million rookie extension in October, but he continues to prove his worth for the Atlanta Hawks with the 2021-22 season in full swing.
On Tuesday, Huerter went for 19 points on 8-for-11 shooting from the field and 3-for-4 from three in the Hawks thrilling win over the Pacers.
Huerter has started more than half of the games so far this season and is averaging 9.9 points per game on 48% shooting from the field and 37% from three in just under 26 minutes per game in his fourth year in the league.
Those numbers are slightly down from last season when Huerter averaged 11.9 points per game on 30 minutes a night. However, if Tuesday is any indication, Huerter may pick up the offensive production in the coming weeks.
