    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. During the trade deadline, teams were calling the Hawks asking about John Collins. With the Hawks hesitating about giving him an extension, teams thought they could pry him away. Collins’ range likely starts at the four-year, $77 million extension signed by Domantas Sabonis with the Indiana Pacers before the start of the season. Collins, for his part, believes he’s proved his value. “I mean, I feel like I am a priority to the Hawks in terms of my value in the…

    5 Big Men Atlanta Hawks Trade Possibilities

    The Atlanta Hawks are probably not making the playoffs this season, but that doesn’t mean they can’t make moves. With the trade deadline coming up Thursday, it’s been rumored that the Hawks want a big man. A couple months ago, there were discussions about Andre Drummond.

    Georgia Tourism Industry Breaks Visitation Records

    Explore Georgia, the state tourism office within the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD), joined Governor Kemp and industry professionals from across the state today to recognize a record-breaking year in tourism at the annual Tourism, Hospitality and Arts Day at the Georgia State Capitol.

Without the jobs created by the tourism industry, Georgia’s unemployment rate would be 10%, nearly twice as high as the record-low average. Governor Kemp was presented…

    Andre Drummond Atlanta Hawks: Should Atlanta Make the Trade?

      The Atlanta Hawks are headed to another losing season and lottery pick. The Detroit Pistons have underachieved, and Andre Drummond could be on the trading block. 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…
