    ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Hawks agreed Monday to a four-year, $65 million contract extension with guard Kevin Huerter, locking up another important player from the team that made a surprising run to the Eastern Conference final. Huerter was the last piece in the Hawks' offseason list of priorities, working out the rookie-scale extension shortly before Monday's 6 p.m. deadline. ESPN first reported the deal, which begins with the 2022-23 season, and Hawks confirmed it in an evening news release.
