John Collins Rumors and mailbag questions (Podcast)

All is not well in Atlanta Hawks land and frustrations are starting to boil over as the trade deadline approaches and many are wondering if Hawks General Manager Travis Schlenk will make a move to help this team. As the trade deadline approaches we discussed the possibility of additions and subtractions the Hawks may or may not make.

It was reported yesterday by Shams Charnia of The Athletic that John Collins had grown “frustrated with his role in Atlanta.” In the latest Hawksbeat podcast we will talk about what this means and how to interpret the report from Charnia. John Collins is coming off an offseason in which he signed a five-year, $125 million deal in restricted free agency. For the season Collins is averaging 17.5 points per game and pulling down 7.9 rebounds a game. He shooting a career best 42% from beyond the arc.

In our latest episode we also discussed questions from our listeners. Some of the topics we covered:

Would Ben Simmons be a good fit?

Who are some players the Hawks should target?

Should Okongwu be starting over Capela?

All these topics and more were addressed in our latest pod. Please make sure to go by our Apple Podcast page and give us a 5 star rating and let us know what you liked about the show.
