The Hawks made the fifth-fewest 3-pointers per game last season and were in the bottom ten in 3-point percentage. Trae Young shot just 33.5 percent, and no starter connected on more than 35 percent from long range. Atlanta traded John Collins to Utah and is relying on internal improvement. They need a stretch four to space the floor and open up their offense.

Bogdanovic, who is not related to current Hawks wing Bogdan Bogdanovic, is an elite shooter who averaged over 20 points per game last year. The 6’7 forward hit over 40 percent from 3-point in four of the last six seasons and would give the Hawks an instant offensive boost.

Bojan Bogdanovic will make $20 million in the 2023-24 campaign and virtually has a $19 million team option for the following season as just $2 million is guaranteed.

The 34-year-old is coming off arguably the best year of his career, and the Hawks may explore trading Clint Capela for Bogey before the deadline. The Pistons do not need another big man but may take one on if the Atlanta Hawks are willing to part with multiple draft picks. The Pistons hope to jump into the playoff race, but they might still be a year away. Do not be surprised to see Detroit as a seller at the deadline, and Bojan Bogdanovic could be a prized target.
