Kings’ offer for John Collins is considered ‘underwhelming’ by Hawks

But while there seems to be some sort of unofficial consensus around the league that Sacramento is leading the way in terms of the negotiations, sources say the Kings’ offer has so far been viewed by the Hawks as disappointing. The Kings’ small forward, Harrison Barnes, would go to Atlanta in the deal, and – to be clear – the choice of the number 4 of the Kings is not part of these discussions. If that were the case, it probably would have been done by now.

If I was a team trying to trade John Collins, and everyone knew I was trying to trade him, I sure would want people to believe a team was interested in swapping an All Star for him. † 23:09

Does John Collins trade within 24 hours? What about this Dejounte Murray rumor?! twitter.com/i/spaces/1RDGl…22:54

Atlanta and San Antonio have discussed a deal that John Collins would trade for Dejounte Murray, sources said. Spurs have told advocacy teams that moving Murray would require a “Jrue Holiday-esque package”. More league-wide trade notes @BR_NBA: bleacherreport.com/articles/10039… – 22:18

More about this storyline

As Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer reported Wednesday, sources confirm there have been significant talks with San Antonio about a deal involving Collins and Spurs guard Dejounte Murray. But late last night, the Spurs’ huge price was seen as exorbitant by the Hawks. There’s a significant gap there, it seems, but it’s still very much worth checking out. -via The Athletic Staff, The Athletic @ The Athletic / June 23, 2022

San Antonio’s most significant discussions about Murray appeared to be taking place with the Atlanta Hawks, in a framework that would send Collins back to the Spurs, league sources told B/R. San Antonio and Atlanta have sidestepped that deal concept, dating at least from the February trade deadline. -via Bleker Report / June 23, 2022

Chris Kirschner: As @Jake Fischer reported, the Hawks have been talking about a trade involving John Collins and Spurs guard Dejounte Murray, but I’m told it’s not quite there yet. I’m not saying it won’t happen, but don’t close this second. -through Twitter @ChrisKirschner / June 23, 2022
