Crazy trade for Dallas Mavericks to land a second star to pair with Luka Doncic: 4. Get Collins

The Hawks plan on shaking up their roster this summer after a disappointing first-round playoff exit. They are building around Trae Young, but every other player on their roster is rumored to be available as Atlanta attempts to make another deep run in 2023.

They will be eager to avoid the luxury tax, and the Hawks could make multiple deals in an attempt to improve their roster. John Collins is always rumored to be available, and the Mavericks are searching for a big man.

This may not look like an advantageous trade for the Hawks, but it gives them the ammo to go star hunting on the trade market. They have all of their future first-round picks plus a 2023 first from Charlotte. Add in two more here, and they would be stocked with the draft choices to deal for All-Star.

Tim Hardaway Jr. would give them another floor-spacing wing that can knock down shots and provide instant offense off the bench. He thrived as the Hawks' sixth man early in his career, and THJ would do so again playing next to Trae Young.

John Collins solves the Dallas Mavericks rebounding woes and gives Luka Doncic a skilled pick and roll partner. He may not be a superstar, but Collins could take his game to another level in Dallas playing off Doncic.
