Can the Hawks be a playoff team next year?

If we are being honest, the Hawks will probably win 23-25 games this year. Trae Young could most likely end the season averaging 30 points and 10 assists a game in only his second year in the league.

Without adding a Lebron James or a Giannis, can the Hawks win 20 more games next season? That's what it usually takes to make the playoffs in the East in most seasons. The eighth seed is usually around .500, although this year seems to be an exception with Orlando being under .500. 

Can the Hawks add a player like a Bradley Beal in a trade or sign a mid-tier free agent like a DeMar DeRozan? If so, that will likely fast track the Hawks to the playoffs.

Jon Chuckery says it's going to take a lot for a team like the Hawks to double their win total and make the playoffs next season.
