Hawks Announce Acquisition of Vit Krejci From Thunder for Moe Harkless

The Hawks have acquired guard Vit Krejci from the Thunder in exchange for forward Moe Harkless and draft considerations, the team announced in a press release.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported that the pick is a second-rounder.

Krejci, 22, is 6-foot-8 and appeared in 30 games with Oklahoma City last season, averaging 6.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists. He was originally drafted by the Wizards with the No. 37 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

He also spent time with the OKC Blue of the G League, averaging 6.4 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.1 steals.

Harkless, 29, is 6-7 and plays both forward spots. He was acquired by the Hawks in a trade with the Kings, along with Justin Holiday, for Kevin Huerter in July. Harkless averaged 4.7 points in 46 games last season.

He has also spent time with the Magic, Trail Blazers, Clippers, Knicks and Heat.

“The trade will have little impact on what either team does on the floor but could prove meaningful to Atlanta for financial purposes,” wrote Sam Quinn of CBS Sports.
