Should Hawks look to acquire Deandre Ayton?


The Atlanta Hawks are looking to make a splash this offseason in the NBA, the question is who do they acquire?

It’s no secret the Hawks are looking to make a change and looking to be aggressive, as they should. But who is out there to acquire? Who fits the Hawks and what the team needs? This team is centered around their star, Trae Young. Other than Young, trading any asset to improve the team seems to be where the team is currently at.

Who makes this team better or would play well alongside Young? Star forward, Jaylen Brown has made a lot of sense as we watch the Celtics advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. Another name to look out for is the center for the Phoenix Suns, Deandre Ayton. Phoenix is coming off a disappointing loss to the Nuggets and looks to be making changes to their roster.

We know Kevin Durant and Devin Booker aren't going anywhere for Phoenix, but Ayton, however, has been in trade rumors since last season.

In a perfect world, the Hawks acquire Brown and Ayton, to play alongside Young. The question is, are the Celtics and the Suns willing to trade their star players, and if so, for who?

The Hawks have a plethora of young talent and key role players. But the Hawks are looking to make noise in order to make a change and win next season. Keep an eye out for Ayton and what it would it look like having him in a Hawks uniform come next season.
