NBA Rumors: Hawks Allegedly ‘Not In Love’ With John Collins As Trade Speculation Continues

Despite standing out as one of the Atlanta Hawks‘ top players at just 23 years old, John Collins has recently been surrounded by myriad trade rumors.

On Tuesday, Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer explained the Hawks’ situation at the moment, where the organization is in “playoffs-or-bust” mode after signing free agents Danilo Gallinari, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Rajon Rondo, and Kris Dunn in the 2020...

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports Monday morning, Shams Charania of The Athletic fanned the flames on the John Collins trade rumors, pigging backing off of a report from Sam Amick last week. Charania said “Atlanta has so far sought a high first-round, lottery-level pick if it is to move Collins,” which may come as surprise given the Hawks’ self-proclaimed desire to compete for a playoff spot in 2021.
