With only six players under contract for the upcoming season, the Atlanta Hawks will most certainly be active in the free-agent market come July.
One of the potential targets on Atlanta’s radar is long-time sharp-shooter, Ray Allen.
Allen has also been linked to the Miami Heat and New York Knicks, however, its unknown where Allen wants to play for sure.
Sam Amico of FOXSportsOhio.com addresses Atlanta’s off-season wishlist:
“Don’t be surprised if the Hawks make a run at former Sixth Man of the Year Jamal Crawford, who spent the past season with the Trail Blazers. Ray Allen (Celtics) and Alonzo Gee (Cavs) are also said to be on their radar.”
Allen has been with the Boston Celtics for the past five years, but many people around the league expect Boston’s “Big Three” to break-up.
The Hawks had seven of their nine bench players signed to the veteran minimum last season — don’t be surprised if Atlanta goes the same route next year and fills new open slots with the same old players.
