Update: Mack benefited from a midseason trade to Utah, after which he became the team's starting point guard and averaged just over 31 minutes during the final 28 games of the season.
Analysis: Mack made just 16 appearances for the Hawks this season at an average of only 6.8 minutes per game while firmly slotted behind both Jeff Teague and Dennis Schroder. Utah's lack of depth at point guard clearly showed when Mack was immediately inserted into the starting five over rookie Raul Neto on Feb. 21. However, Mack's path to playing time next season becomes more convoluted since Dante Exum (knee) and Alec Burks (knee) will both be back in the mix for significant playing time at point guard. In fact, Utah holds a team option for Mack's contract next season, so there's a possibility he won't even return if the organization intends to roll with a combination of Exum, Burks, Neto, and Trey Burke.
