Should I interpret this to mean that I will not sell it at this level?
Local media ‘Ahnfiredigital.com’ reported on how the Atlanta Hawks are coping with John Collins trade rumors, citing an unnamed Eastern Conference official. 안전놀이터
Collins entered the NBA ahead of the 2017-2018 season and established himself as a decent big man resource, scoring between 15 and 20 points per game every season. This season has been sluggish, averaging 13.3 points and 8.1 rebounds per game in 32 games, and speculation continues that Atlanta is trying to turn the tide with the Collins trade.
Indeed, rumors of a trade gained weight when reports surfaced that Collins himself wanted to leave Atlanta. If so, the trade will depend on how Atlanta measures the value of Collins.
Regarding this, an anonymous Eastern Conference official said, “Atlanta wants Collins to be treated as an All-Star. In other words, in exchange for him, they want a price similar to the Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell trade package,” he said, surprising many fans. He also said, “Brooklyn can offer a trade package using Joe Harris, Lois O’Neill, and Cam Thomas.”
It’s a pretty amazing measure of value. This is the reason why some point out that this is not to say that Collins will not be sold. Collins has shown good looks in the past, but he is on a different level than Gobert and Mitchell.
The Gobert and Mitchell trade package was one of the largest in NBA history. What Minnesota spent on acquiring Gobert in the Gobert trade: Patrick Beverly, Jared Vanderbilt, Malik Beasley, Walker Kessler, Leandro Volmaro, 2023 1st round pick (top 12 protected), 2025 1st round pick (unprotected) , 2026 1st round pick swap rights, 2027 1st round pick (unprotected), 2029 1st round pick (top 5 protected). Cleveland’s expense in the Mitchell trade was Lauri Makkanen, Ochai Agvazi, Colin Sexton, three first-round draft picks, and two pick swap rights.
Both cases are possible. If Atlanta is actually valuing this much, it’s virtually impossible to make a trade. It’s overrated. It’s no different than a signal that they won’t sell. But at the same time, it is pointed out that this may be a media play to increase Collins’ market value on the side of Atlanta. It is also a technique that has frequently appeared in the trade market before. 안전놀이터
The latter is more likely, but no one can know the true psychology of the Atlanta club unless they are involved. Watching Collins’ trade with both directions in mind will make it more interesting.
