The Atlanta Hawks are looking at making some major changes to their roster in order to get back to the top of the Eastern Conference where they belong. There was a little bit of noise at the start of the month that the Hawks were interested in the former second-round pick Jerami Grant.

To this end, we here at Soaring Down South proposed two potential trades to make this happen. The Hawks are shopping John Collins around at the moment and this may be enough for the Pistons to make the move to send Grant to the Hawks.

According to Tyler Conway of B/R the Hawks are going to be in a potential bidding war for the services of Grant, that is even if the Pistons decide to trade him. They remain undecided as to whether they trade the forward or keep him to continue their rebuild.

Would the Atlanta Hawks be able to offer enough while keeping enough

In almost every trade made in the NBA, there is a winner and there is a loser. Some trades work out for both teams but they are reasonably rare. With the Hawks looking to get back to the top of a stronger Eastern Conference, they need to win this trade.

Fortunately for any team that manages to secure the services of Grant he gives you options at both ends of the floor. The problem is the Hawks are reasonably cash strapped in terms of the salary cap and they will be bidding against teams such as the Portland Trail Blazers who do not need to keep as much in reserve because they are rebuilding.

While Grant would be an incredible addition to the Hawks squad but the potential for him to cost the Hawks too much is very real. So, despite the Hawks being interested in Grant, how likely will it be that he will be on the team next year? With the competition for his services, it seems unlikely that Grant will be on the Hawks squad but stranger things have happened.
