    Should the Atlanta Hawks Sign John Collins to Extension?

    There have been rumblings lately about the Atlanta Hawks and John Collins.  The Atlanta Hawks have reservations about signing John Collins to a significant long-term contract extension this offseason.

    Hawks Beat Blazers to Win Consecutive Games Behind Young Core

As a Hawks fan, we need a big man on the block to command the middle. Drummond is averaging almost 18 points and nearly 16 rebounds a game for Detroit. We heard the reports from yesterday that the Hawks are interested in trading for Andre Drummond. It feels like Drummond been in the league forever, but he’s only 26-years-old. Drummond’s contract is through the 2020-21 season where he’s owed over $28.75 million dollars. The Hawks will have ample amount of money for the…
