Hawks have shown interest in Italian big man


Nicolo Melli has been of interest to the Hawks for a very long time. The Hawks were reportedly interested in him back in 2013 and offered him a contract last summer. The fact that he has turned down an offer from the Hawks may not bode well for the future. However, Melli has had other plans before pursuing his childhood dream of playing in the NBA. He wants to win the EuroLeague before making the jump. Nevertheless, it appears the Hawks still have him on their radar for the foreseeable future:

Melli is a dual citizen of Italy and the United States, and he will have suitors from multiple teams if he decides to go that route. He was second-team all EuroLeague last season and is entering his prime at age 27. Keep him on your radar next summer.
