If Atlanta is going to move John Collins for not that much, some team is going to get a really good player on a perfectly fair contract. That deal will look especially good when the cap rises in a few years. Collins is good and I don’t understand why he’s the trade piece there. – 9:56 AM

More on this storyline

The Spurs and Mavericks have been considered Collins suitors dating back to the 2020 offseason. -via Bleacher Report / January 27, 2022

The 76ers and Hawks briefly kicked around a trade of Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris for John Collins, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Danilo Gallinari, league sources told HoopsHype. However, those talks stalled quickly, with Atlanta uninterested in Harris and unlikely to be able to flip him to a third team. -via HoopsHype / January 26, 2022

While there’s been no direct indication on particular trade frameworks for Atlanta’s pursuit of Grant, the Hawks have grown more active in searching for a new home for John Collins, sources said, and Collins’ salary works in a direct swap for Grant. The Kings are said to have removed De’Aaron Fox and Tyrese Haliburton from any ongoing trade conversations, though Marvin Bagley III has consistently drawn interest from Detroit. -via Bleacher Report / January 25, 2022
