NBA free agency: Mavericks, Heat, Spurs to show interest in Hawks big man John Collins this summer, per report

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

The Atlanta Hawks made a surprising run to the Eastern Conference finals this year on the strength of Trae Young’s phenomenal playoff debut, as well as the depth of Bogdan Bogdanovic, Kevin Huerter, Danilo Gallinari, Lou Williams, Clint Capela and John Collins. While the Hawks couldn’t overcome the Bucks, in part due to an injury to Young, it showed a glimpse of what this team can become in the very near future, but it also piqued the interest of other teams around the league in some of Atlanta’s players. It’s the outcome Collins was hoping for when he declined a reported $90 million from the Hawks before this season to bet on himself and secure more money.

That doesn’t mean he and the Hawks can’t come to an agreement on a new deal this summer, as team owner Tony Ressler said at the team’s end-of-season press conference that he hopes Collins returns next season.
