Staring with Carter, Vince has no doubt been a fun part of the last two seasons with the Hawks, and has said in the past that he chose to play here to get minutes rather than ring-chase on a contenders bench.

Still, I can easily imagine some teams like Toronto, who obviously have ties with VC, wanting him for the back-half of his 22nd and final NBA season. If he asks for a trade, I’m sure the Hawks would oblige.

Bembry seems to have ran his course in Atlanta, refusing to progress through his now three-and–a-half seasons with the Hawks. He’s averaged under 15 minutes a game since December 8th, and is having his worst season offensively.

The former 1st round pick isn’t going to draw a huge crowd on the market, but with restricted free agency looming, a team could take a flier on him if the Hawks want to move on.

Len has found his niche as a high volume 6th man, and unlike Bembry, has made strides in his game this season.

Particularity defensively, the 2nd year Hawk has emerged as an elite level rim protector, and is shooting over 60% on the other side of the court since December started.

It’s easy to imagine Len sliding right in as a bench contributor for a contender, and the Hawks would certainly miss him. He’s set to hit unrestricted free agency in July.

Jabari Parker is the Hawks’ marquee trade piece this season. He filled in great while John Collins has been gone, and has shown that his explosive athleticism is back on multiple occasions this season.

It’s a near return to form for the 2014 2nd overall pick, and at just 24, that obviously is going to draw eyes from GM’s across the league.

Parker is averaging 15.0 points and 6.0 rebounds per game this season, although it was recently announced that he’d be missing at least two weeks due to a shoulder injury that kept him out of all but one game since December 23rd.

dark. Next. Hawks' Parker to miss at least two weeks after non-surgical shoulder treatment

If Atlanta is already listening to offers for Parker, there’s a chance he’s played his last game in a Hawks uniform, and he’s essentially headed towards unrestricted free agency with a player option this summer. The Hawks should get offers, and likely will be listening intently unless they think he can be a true part of the future.

The NBA trade dealine is February 6th. Stay tuned here for more trade coverage until then.
