The 2001-02 NBA season was the Hawks' 53rd season in the National Basketball Association, and 34th season in Atlanta.[1] In the 2001 NBA draft, the Hawks selected Spain basketball star Pau Gasol with the third pick, but soon traded him to the Memphis Grizzlies for Shareef Abdur-Rahim,[2] then signed free agents Ira Newble and Jacque Vaughn during the offseason. Abdur-Rahim led the Hawks in scoring averaging 21.2 points per game, and was selected for the 2002 NBA All-Star Game. However, Theo Ratliff only played just three games due to an offseason hip injury. The Hawks struggled losing 12 of their 15 games in January as they held a 16-33 record before the All-Star break. However, they played around .500 for the remainder of the season while posting a 9-7 record in March. They showed slight improvement avoiding 50 losses by finishing sixth in the Central Division with a 33-49 record. Following the season, Toni Kuko? was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks, and Vaughn signed with the Orlando Magic.
