The 1992-93 NBA season was the Hawks' 44th season in the National Basketball Association, and 25th season in Atlanta.[1] Prior to the start of the season, the Hawks acquired Mookie Blaylock from the New Jersey Nets. Despite having Dominique Wilkins back after missing most of the previous year with a ruptured Achilles tendon, the Hawks lost five of their first seven games, but managed to defeat the defending champion Chicago Bulls on the road, 100-99 at the Chicago Stadium on November 7.[2] As the season progressed, the team continued to struggle playing below 500. for the first half of the season, holding a 26-31 record as of March 4. However, the Hawks would win 12 of their next 13 games while posting a 12-3 record in March, on their way to finishing fourth in the Central Division with a 43-39 record.

Wilkins surpassed Bob Pettit as the Hawks all-time scoring leader, finishing second in the league in scoring averaging 29.9 points per game. He was named to the All-NBA Second Team and selected for the 1993 NBA All-Star Game. However, in the first round of the playoffs, the Hawks would be swept by the Bulls in three straight games. Following the season, head coach Bob Weiss was fired and replaced by legendary head coach Lenny Wilkens.

For the season, the Hawks changed their uniforms which lasted until 1995.
