The Atlanta Hawks are looking to their future, which means pretty much every player who is part of their present is on the block.
According to Chris Mannix of Yahoo Sports, Atlanta is very much open for business.
“The Hawks, under the leadership of first-year GM Travis Schlenk, have made everyone available, several rival team executives said,” Mannix writes. “As Atlanta rebuilds, Schlenk — who shed Dwight Howard’s contract this summer and let Paul Millsap walk — has been seeking expiring contracts and draft picks in deals.
“Marco Belinelli and Ersan Ilyasova, veteran, floor-spacing players, have generated interest, as has second-year swingman Taurean Prince.”
In fact, Belinelli has already been informed he will be traded.
Mannix reports the team’s floor general is among those on the market.
“Dennis Schroder is available,” he said. “But the three-years and $46.5 million remaining on Schroder’s deal coupled with a string of maturity issues have made interest minimal.”
The NBA trade deadline is 3 p.m. Thursday.
