Article Summary:

The qualifying offer is around $7.7 million, and is merely a formality as the Hawks and Collins try to come close to a bigger number for a new contract. The benefit for Atlanta is they will have the ability to match any offer Collins gets from other teams, but if the price gets too high it could force the Hawks to make some tough decisions.

During the Hawks’ end-of-season press conference following their loss in the Eastern Conference finals to the Bucks, team owner Tony Ressler said that while he hopes Collins returns next season, it’s a “Pretty good bet” that Atlanta won’t be able to return all the players it wants to for next year. He’s shown the ability to be a 20 and 10 guy, and it’s clear the Hawks want to keep him around.
