The Atlanta Hawks are widely expected to undergo several roster changes this offseason. General Manager Travis Schlenk said after the playoffs ended that Atlanta should have been more aggressive and not run back mostly the same roster last year.
One player the Hawks could pursue is restricted free agent Deandre Ayton of the Phoenix Suns. The catch is that Atlanta is only interested in Ayton if he comes on contract worth less than the max, per reporting from The Athletic. Ayton is expected to receive interest at his full max salary of over $30 million from at least a few teams.
