The Atlanta Hawks are likely going into firesale mode as the NBA trade deadline approaches and, reportedly, guard Marco Belinelli and forward Ersan Ilyasova are likely to be on the move, according to Marc Stein of The New York Times.
According to the report, the Hawks will only receive 2nd-round picks in return for the players.
“The Hawks are still actively trying to find new homes for Ersan Ilyasova and Marco Belinelli, but only second-rounders are in play for the Hawks as we speak,” Stein wrote in his report.
“It would appear, with a week and change to go before the trade deadline, that Belinelli is more likely to be moved than Ilyasova, who has the right to veto any proposed deal as a player on a one-year contract who resigned in the off-season with his previous team (making him what’s known as a One-Year Bird).”
Hawks guard Dennis Schroder is likely on his way out of Atlanta as well, but his departure is not expected until the offseason because of Shroder’s low value on the market currently.
