The 2006–07 NBA season was the Atlanta Hawks' 58th season in the National Basketball Association, and 39th season in Atlanta.[1] During the offseason, the Hawks signed free agent Speedy Claxton and re-signed Lorenzen Wright. The Hawks got off to a strong start winning four of their first five games. However, the lack of talent on the court continued to weigh down the Hawks as they entered the New Year with a 9–20 record, including an 8-game losing streak. In January, they posted a winning record as they won 8 of their 15 games during the month. Joe Johnson averaged 25.0 points per game and was selected for the 2007 NBA All-Star Game. However, after the All-Star break, Johnson would miss the remainder of the season due to calf injuries after 57 games. At midseason, the team re-signed free agent Anthony Johnson, who would play in his third stint with the Hawks, who finished last place in the Southeast Division with a 30–52 record, missing the playoffs for the eighth straight season.
