Suddenly, there is a new storyline coming out of Atlanta. Last season, it was about how the hearts were able to surprise the NBA world and make a run to the Eastern Conference Finals. Now, it is about whether or not they will decide to move one of their stars.

It was a disappointing season for the Hawks. After signing both Trae Young and John Collins to extensions, Atlanta fell in the standings and barely qualified for the play-in round. They are looking like a threat to get swept by the Miami Heat.
