NBA news about the Atlanta Hawks making a big splash on the trade market is confirmed. After keeping Paul Millsap out of the trading block, it was believed that they are not making any movement anymore. But it appears that they are taking their chances to augment their roster come to the trade deadline tomorrow.
After trading Kyle Korver to the Cleveland Cavaliers for forward Mike Dunleavy last month, many thought that it is a blunder for the Hawks to deal their prolific shooter. However, it seems the move didn't affect their standings as they continue to perform well as of late.
The Hawks are currently in the fifth spot of the Eastern Conference division holding a 32-24 win-loss record. And with things going smoothly heading to the playoffs, one thing that's keeping them out to go deep to the playoffs is an additional firepower to support their old reliables.
But now, recent reports are saying that they are looking to making a deal before the trade deadline ends tomorrow. According to ESPN, the Atlanta Hawks will still remain active in trade talks but cleared that they are not offering Paul Millsap and intend to keep him until the end of the season.
There are some players with expiring contracts that the Hawks might present as trade offers and could gain a little interest to other teams. The list of players includes Tim Hardaway Jr., Thabo Sefolosha, Tiago Splitter, Kris Humphries, Mike Muscala and Mike Scott but it most likely that Hardaway Jr. will be the only one to re-sign by the team.
If ever they are decided to make a trade, latest buzz is spreading that two names are now under the Hawks' radar for a possible trade, Phoenix Suns forward P.J. Tucker and Sacramento Kings guard Langston Galloway.
Tucker have been previously mentioned as the Hawks potential target due to his defensive versatility and decent outside shooting. He will make a big improvement on the Hawks forward spot as a quality backup however he has an expiring contract which is too risky for the Hawks.
Meanwhile, the recently traded guard Galloway could be another better option for them. People are expecting that the Kings will waive him after the New Orleans Pelicans shift him to Sacramento as part of the DeMarcus Cousins' trade. He'll be a perfect fit as the Hawks backup point guard to Dennis Schroder.
