The 1998-99 NBA season was the Hawks' 50th season in the National Basketball Association, and 31st season in Atlanta.[1] During a season cut to 50 games by a four-month lockout, the Hawks continued to split their home games between the Georgia Dome, and the Alexander Memorial Coliseum. In the offseason, the team signed free agents LaPhonso Ellis, a former teammate of Dikembe Mutombo on the Denver Nuggets, second-year guard Anthony Johnson and re-signed Grant Long. However, Ellis would be out for the remainder of the season with a hernia injury after just 20 games. The Hawks won nine of their final eleven games, and finished second in the Central Division with a 31-19 record. In the first round of the playoffs, they would defeat the Detroit Pistons in five games, but would be swept by the 8th-seeded New York Knicks in four straight games in the semifinals.[2] This season would also be the last time the Hawks appear in the playoffs until 2008.

Following the season, Steve Smith was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers,[3]Mookie Blaylock was traded to the Golden State Warriors, Long signed as a free agent with the Vancouver Grizzlies, and Tyrone Corbin re-signed with the Sacramento Kings.
