    We're in the wrong business, brehs. :sadcam: :mjcry:



    Report: John Collins expected to sign a $120 million extension with the Hawks when free agency begins

    While i love his versatility and can only wish well on the breh and his family I find that these teams signing players to max deals based on their potential alone is one of the flaws of the NBA. Granted I still dont want the NFL style CBA where contracts can be ripped apart before the ink dries up. He may end up living up to the value of the contract but it could also be another Nicholas Batum type max deal

    I think Collins would be a great fit for a team like Boston, Miami or Dallas

    I think NBA players are broken down into about 5 tiers...I think Collins is around tier 2, and I don't view a tier 2 player as a max player

    However, if you have to overpay for talent, Milwaukee overpaying for Holiday (trade capital and contract extension) & Middletown (contract extension) will give teams the confidence to continue doing so now

    Get your money :ehh:
    Sounds like Hawks are gonna be returning the core crew. People gotta remember they basically made their entire run with Hunter and Cam being out, and then factor in them, Okongwu, Huerter, Collins, and Trae all getting better just by nature of being young players
    They need another star to help Trae, maybe that's a young guy like Reddish making a leap, but they definitely have a really impressive combination of talented youth and depth

    I guess the hawks are willing to pay so I wonder which of the reddish/hurter/hunter trio will need to be moved. I like this hawks team and I think internal development is what’s missing.

    I been watching Hunter closely and i love the kid's game. He could become a star if not a super star but his knee issues (no meniscus since college) will limit him. Most Hawks fans however seem to like Reddish better. But Hunter reminds me of Paul Pierce and Eddie Jones when they were young.

    Reddish is just more fun to watch to some with all the high flying above the rim game. But dont sleep on Hunter. If he stays healthy i could see him being better than Reddish

    Tweet just says qualifying offer, which if I’m not mistaken means if a team offers him a contract they can match and if no one does he can accept the qualifying offer and become a ufa next year

    I'd let Collins walk if I were the Hawks. He's too inconsistent they already snagged up Tristan Thompson.

    Why Atlanta?
    Y'all got a star in Trae; play in a major market, y'all should be able to draw Biid to Atlanta in 2+ years in FA
