John Collins wasn't traded during the 2022 NBA Draft, as many expected. But don't expect Collins to remain with the Atlanta Hawks much longer, either.
The Hawks are continuing their effort to find a new home for Collins. It's widely expected that Collins will be traded this offseason. Atlanta is looking to clear salary and Collins and the Hawks appear ready for a breakup.
“He’s done in Atlanta,” a source close to Collins told The Athletic.
Collins averaged 16.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and a block per game for the Hawks last season. He shot 52.6% from the field, including 36.4% on three-pointers. Collins has four years and $102 million left on the five-year deal he signed with the Hawks in the summer of 2021.
