3) Andrew Wiggins - Golden State Warriors

By now it should be clear that the Hawks’ primary objective is getting strong on the wings. Getting Saddiq Bey back and healthy will help. But their play between the guard and center spots has been inconsistent for years.

The Warriors failed to make the postseason, falling to the Sacramento Kings in the first round of the Play-In Tournament and putting their future as a group in jeopardy.

Andrew Wiggins was essential to their most recent title run. 

But he could be the odd man out if Warriors brass eyes one last hurrah for the Big 3 of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. That could be to the Hawks benefit with Wiggins’ ability to slot in anywhere from 2-4 on the court.

Wiggins is going into Year 2 of a four-year, $109 million contract and is set to count $26.3 million against the cap in 2024-25.

The Athletic’s Marcus Thompson II floated Murray as a target for the Warriors on April 29.

Wiggins shot the deep ball poorly this season. But he has historically been a more prolific scorer from deep than Murray and would thrive more off the ball in contrast to Durant and Ingram, both of whom command touches on offense.

Still, the Hawks could use Wiggins’ versatility in a lineup also featuring Hunter and fourth-year forward Jalen Johnson.
