The Atlanta Hawks might be making some changes this NBA offseason after an underwhelming year.

The Hawks made a run to the Eastern Conference Finals last season when no one expected much. This season, the Hawks were looking to prove that last season was not a fluke but was unable to.

Atlanta fell in the standings but was able to qualify for series play in the postseason. The Hawks landed the eighth seed and were quickly eliminated by the Miami Heat.

Last offseason, the Hawks were aggressive in signing their core to contracts. Trae Young agreed to an extension while John Collins returned on a free-agent deal. Now, the front office could look to reshape once again.

While Collins has been linked in many rumors, the Hawks could look to move another deal. Kevin Huerter just finished his fourth year in the league. He signed a four-year extension to remain with the Hawks last season.

Since coming into the league, Huerter has improved as a scorer and shooter. He is a career 37.9% shooter from three-point range. This is a skill that many teams could be looking for in a young player.

The Hawks might be looking to clear up some cap space this offseason. If that is the case, Huerter would be an intriguing piece to move. Let’s take a closer look at three teams that might be interested in his duties this offseason.

 

Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics were linked to Huerter during the NBA trade deadline. There were talks of Atlanta packaging Huerter and Cam Reddish for a package that was led by Marcus Smart. This trade was not made at the time but that does not mean that the two sides are done negotiating.

If Huerter is back on the market, the Celtics could take advantage and add some more depth along the perimeter. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown make up an elite duo that has led the Celtics to the top of the Eastern Conference. In today’s NBA, you can never have too many guards.
