Report: There is “optimism” Hawks will be able to re-sign John Collins

dkf200122002 lac atl 1

In what was more of a formality, the Hawks already extended a qualifying offer to John Collins, who will be one of, if not, the hottest free agents this offseason. Now, Travis Schlenk can match any offer sheet Collins signs, but with such widespread interest, there are some of the opinion the Hawks could choose to let him walk. However, Zach Lowe of the Lowe Post podcast believes otherwise, “There’s some optimism now that Atlanta is going to be able to re-sign John Collins.”

The price will likely be high for the star power forward, given the interest in him, but Lowe is a well-respected name in basketball, so this should spark some confidence among Hawks fans. As I said before, Atlanta can match any offer sheet he signs, so the belief is Schlenk will pay whatever it takes to bring Collins back. The free agency tampering period begins on August 2nd; we will find out soon after whether or not Collins will be playing in Atlanta next season.
