Hawks’ Seth Lundy Underwent Ankle Surgery

Rookie wing Seth Lundy underwent surgery on his left ankle on May 1, the Hawks announced today in a press release. The procedure, which was performed at the Southern California Orthopedic Institute, removed a medial ankle bone spur.

According to the Hawks, Lundy will miss this year’s Summer League, but the expectation is that he’ll make a full recovery in time for the start of the 2024/25 season.

The 46th overall pick in the 2023 draft, Lundy signed a two-way contract with Atlanta and appeared in just nine games at the NBA level, logging 52 total minutes over the course of his rookie season. The former Penn State standout saw considerably more action in the G League, appearing in 25 games for the College Park Skyhawks and averaging 20.4 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in 32.6 minutes per contest, with a shooting line of .462/.400/.803.

Because Lundy’s two-way contract covered just a single season, he’ll be eligible for restricted free agency this summer. If he’s in the Hawks’ plans going forward, they’ll likely issue him a qualifying offer, which would be the equivalent of another one-year, two-way deal. The 24-year-old wouldn’t have much leverage to turn down that offer while he’s recovering from ankle surgery.

If Atlanta doesn’t issue Lundy a qualifying offer by the end of June, he’ll become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
