Report: The Kings are exploring the trade for the Hawks’ John Collins, but not for No. 4 in the NBA Draft. How would Collins fit in, what would a deal look like, and why would Atlanta do it?

Pile of rumors in the last piece of Shams. Shams says the Kings feel comfortable choosing at 4 and McNair has spoken to the Hawks about John Collins without any involvement in this year’s selection.

The probability of a John Collins transaction, according to league sources, is as high as ever. Collins had just completed the first season of a $ 125 million five-year deal, but his new deal did nothing to dampen external interest in the 6-legged-9 forward that has swelled across the league since the talks. collapsed between Collins and The Hawks in a $ 90 million expansion at the start of the 2020-21 season. -via marcstein.substack.com/20 June 2022
The Hawks are one of the teams watching closely this week: sources say they are actively trying to move into the top 10 and are looking at Portland’s No. 7 pick, among other scenarios. Atlanta seems to have a real interest in training a guard to mate with Trae Young. Both John Collins, Clint Capela and Kevin Huerter have emerged as commercial potential. -through Sports Illustrated / June 20, 2022
