The Atlanta Hawks have seen some solid play from Italian shooting guard Marco Belinelli since he came over from the Charlotte Hornets in the Dwight Howard trade.

Belinelli, 31, is hoping that his play earns him a multi-year contract in the summer.

“My goal is to sign a new two or three year contract this summer. I am giving it all on the court for the Hawks” Belinelli said, according to Massimo Lopes Pegna of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sportando).

“Europe? It is an hypothesis that I will start considering in the future. It would be a normal epilogue for my career because there is always a bit of homesickness. But I love America: here I have realized my dream and I work well here. But I miss Italy and I will live there (when my career is over)”.

Belinelli is averaging a career high 12 points per game while grabbing 2.2 rebounds and dishing out 2.6 assists for the Hawks this season.
