It comes as no shock that the Atlanta Hawks are looking like sellers at the trade deadline on Thursday, and one player they are shopping around is former Utah Jazz first-round pick Taurean Prince.
Prince is indeed on the market and a few teams have their eyes on him according to The Ringer, with those teams being the Thunder, 76ers and the Blazers.
The talented young forward is still just 25, and in 32 games for Atlanta this season is averaging of 13.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists a game.
In 22 starts, his numbers are even better, averaging 14.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 28.4 minutes per start.
Prince’s NBA career began in Utah as the 12th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, but never played a game for the Jazz and was traded to the Hawks.
He also helped the United States men’s national basketball team win the bronze medal at the 2015 Pan American Games.
In his three seasons in Atlanta, Prince has a career scoring average of 11.1 points, with 3.8 rebounds. He played in all 82 games a year ago, putting up a career-high 14.1 points per game.
