Hawks very clearly remain open for business

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.

    Hey Mr. Amico im a big fan of your work. Can you tell me whether the Cavs and Hawks have talked about a potential trade for Dennis Schroder. Ik im just a 17 year old and may not know everything that is going on but wouldn’t a trade for the before mentioned Kent Bazemore, Dennis Schroder, and Dwayne Dedman for a Cavs package of Isiah Thomas, Iman Shumpert, Tristan Thompson and the Cavs First round pick make sence for both teams? The Cavs would get Bazemore a 3 and D guy that would help with defense, Schroder who also plays tough D and is a smart offensive scorer and passer who is also young, and Dedman who is a cheaper Tristan Thompson. The Hawks want to rebuild and dump the big contracts of Bazemore and Schroder and those two actually fit the needs of the Cavs. The Hawks would get Thomas who can leave next year or they can build around him if he comes to perform Shumpert who is on a shorter cheaper contracts than the ones they are giving up and Thompson which is the one outlier but they also get the Cavs pick. What are your thoughts?
