The New Orleans Pelicans have joined a long list of teams with interest in trading for John Collins. The Atlanta Hawks have had Collins on the trade block for months with a number of teams interested in him though quite clearly not at the asking price.

The Pelicans reached out to the Hawks with preliminary interest in Collins.

The Hawks are fielding offers for Collins, but remain comfortable retaining him past the deadline.

Collins and the Hawks signed a five-year, $125 million deal in 2021.
