2017–18 Atlanta Hawks season

The 2017–18 Atlanta Hawks season was the team's 68th season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the 50th in Atlanta. For the first time since 2013, Paul Millsap will not be on the roster, as he signed with the Denver Nuggets in free agency. This was the first time the Hawks missed the playoffs since 2007, and made them the second NBA team to go 60 years without winning a title. This season would also be the last with Mike Budenholzer coaching the Hawks, as he would part with them after the season ended on April 25, 2018, later joining the Milwaukee Bucks in May.
