@JohnMCollins | Will Taurean Prince be moved by the deadline?
I would be shocked if Taurean was moved by next week’s deadline. However there is this…
Y’all won 👍🏾— ⛓ Forever Humble (@taureanprince) January 28, 2019
It would take a massive haul (prospect + first round pick) for the Hawks to give up on the 3rd year Forward. I don’t see any team banking on him to be a difference maker.
@Nasteedunx | What will it take to get D’Marcus Simonds some Ja Morant style hype?
Absolutely! Since the rebuild has begun, I have maintained that the Hawks would make the playoffs in 2020. Being the Eastern Conference where 38 wins will usually get you in the Hawks should easily find themselves in contention.
I think they’re even ahead of schedule development wise this year. Add another lottery pick (likely two) to the feisty young core and we could be talking!
Trae Young, Kevin Huerter, Draft/FA, John Collins, Draft/FA
@Jansen_Harris (IG) | Will Kent Bazemore be traded?
I hope not. A contender may get desperate and offer us a first rounder which GM Travis Schlenk would find hard to deny. Kent Bazemore has already expressed interest in resigning with the Hawks for what it’s worth.
Also HQ fans, be sure to check out everything Jansen is doing over at the JustGoodNetwork!
@ATL_pillowtalk (IG) | Will the Falcons bring back the all black unis?
I think it will continue to be a one yearly throwback theme game.
@k1dn0thng (IG) | Will there still be a Freeman/Coleman duo next season?
