Atlanta Hawks Trade Rumors Are Heating Up!

The Atlanta Hawks are sick and tired of being a forgotten team in the eastern conference and their management group is ready to make a run. Don't expect them to select another young prospect at next month's NBA draft, they're going for it!

The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor had more to say on the matter, as the Hawks will be one of the busier teams this off season:

The Hawks are shopping their first-round pick and intend to push for the playoffs, according to multiple league sources. Expect them to also be aggressive in free agency; the franchise wants to win now and capitalize on Trae Young’s emergence.

O'Connor went as far as to mention the Hawks and the San Antonio Spurs could pull off a trade that swaps the 6th and 11th picks and gets the Hawks SG/SF DeMar DeRozan.
