Hawks send John Collins to Jazz via trade

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Atlanta Hawks are trading forward John Collins to the Utah Jazz in return for Rudy Gay and a future second-round pick.

What It Means:

The Hawks appear to be moving Collins to shift off of the large 3-year, $78 million contract to gain some additional flexibility with their cap. They'll acquire Rudy Gay in the deal, who averaged 14.6 minutes per game off the bench over 56 games for the Jazz last season.

Collins started each of his 71 games with the Hawks last season but has seen his effectiveness with the team dwindle over each of the past 3 years. He averaged 13.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game in 2022.
