Hawks ‘absolutely open for business’ on potential trades

Things haven’t gone nearly as well as hoped for the Atlanta Hawks. So yes, they will explore ways to shake up the roster, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.Dejounte Murray

Names such as guard Dejounte Murray, forward De’Andre Hunter and center Clint Capela have all hit the rumor mill recently, with the lone untouchable said to be star guard Trae Young.

“The Hawks are absolutely open for business on trades,” Wojnarowski wrote during his weekly chat on the social media platform Threads. “GM Landry Fields seems determined to make changes to that roster.”

Sources told Hoops Wire they believe that Murray will be the most likely to go before the Feb. 8 trade deadline — simply because he’s likely to bring the most in return. Plus, he was acquired before Quin Snyder was brought in as coach.

More than that, the Murray-Young combo hasn’t moved the needle, with Atlanta sitting at 13-19 entering Wednesday’s home game against the up-and-coming Oklahoma City Thunder.

Murray has been linked mostly to the Knicks, though multiple others are said to be interested.
