The Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat and Detroit Pistons are interested in trading for Atlanta Hawks star Dejounte Murray, according to NBA insider Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports.

The Hawks are widely expected to move Murray before the February trade deadline.

“Murray has generated a substantial market during preliminary conversations around the league,” Fischer wrote. “The Hawks have been considered one of the more aggressive front offices this season, sources said, in terms of teams that have been willing to approach rival executives with actual trade concepts as opposed to general interest in specific players. And at this juncture, to varying degrees, the Lakers, Knicks, Sixers, Heat and Pistons are five suitors expected to engage Atlanta about acquiring Murray over the coming days and weeks before Feb 8.”
