Would need a big return:

Cam is the player many outlets (including ourselves) have thrown in as the Pistons’ main return in a potential Andre Drummond deal, and maybe rightfully so.

The 10th overall pick last summer has struggled mightily to find his shot, but has played consistently good defense and some promise as a slasher. I still don’t think GM Travis Schlenk would deal Reddish after just 3 rough months, but he’s certainly not un-tradeable like the group above.

Kev Huerter looked like he was certain to be a part of the Hawks’ future after his fantastic rookie season, but has failed to improve much this season, even regressing in some aspects.

The sharpshooting guard is still just 21, and seems to mesh well with Trae and JC, but could still find his name on the block if a big name like say Karl-Anthony Towns enters the market.

Cap relief guys:

All three of these guys are first-year Hawks, and it’s easy to see why they were brought in: money.

Each of these trio of vets are in their final year of a very lucrative deal, making them ideal cap relief for any trade.

More from Soaring Down South

Technically, these are probably the three most likely to be shipped, while Crabbe and Turner are both buy-out candidates if not traded. Crabbe is the only member of these three to be an active part of the rotation however, and I’d tag him with the best odds to stay on the team.


No team is going to be calling the Hawks’ front office trying to work out a trade for one of these guys, but if a trade is in the works and the Hawks have to sweeten the pot a bit, these guys could easily be thrown in.

Bruno Fernando has been very shaky in modest minutes for a 2nd-rounder, and Damian Jones hasn’t been much better.

Fernando has decent value as a 21-year-old, and while it would surprise me to see Atlanta trade him, they did trade away Omari Spellman after just one season last summer.
