The Atlanta Hawks have been at the front and center of trade rumors since their early exit from the playoffs in May. Forward John Collins has been the focal point of these discussions, with many coming to a head early this week. Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report is very confident that the Hawks have a plan to move the star big man before the NBA Draft gets underway this Thursday.

Collins just signed a 5 year, $125 million extension last offseason following the Hawks' run to the Eastern Conference Finals last year and, at the time, figured to be a part of the team's continued growth around Trae Young. That no longer seems to be the case, according to Jake Fisher.
