Hawks Trade Deal

  • Hawks Sent Clint Capela To the Mavs For Maxi Kleber, JaVale Mcgee, and a 2027 Top-8 Protected Frp

  • Hawks Then Sent De'Andre Hunter, Maxi Kleber, AJ Griffin, 2024 Frp, 2027 Frp Top 8 Protected (Via Mavs), 2030 Frp, and 2028 Pick Swap Rights To The Raptors for Pascal Siakam


  • Signs Javonte to a 2 Year/4.8m

Trade Explanation


  • Hawks Are Currently Targeting Siakam as We All Know Right Now Obviously, Hawks Would Probably Be Forced to Give Up Some of There Young Assets And Draft Picks Just to Get This Man Since There are Several Teams Interested To Get Siakam As Well. So is Siakam Really Worth The package that hawks are giving? Yes Obviously, He is One Of The Best Players In The Leauge, But With Him In An Expiring Deal, Some Will Say That Its Not Really Worth It. Well Maybe, but Hawks Are Very Eager to Really Land Him This Offseason Even So Giving Up Some of There Future Pieces. The Front Office Really Wants to Give the Team More Chances for Contention. About His Expiring Contract, I Definitely See Him Getting an Extention, How? First of all, Hawks Got a Huge Cap Space In The 2025 season. So They Can Give Siakam as Much Money as He Wants, Second, I Don't Really See Siakam Leaving if He Finds Success on This Team. So With That Ease From Our Mind, What Can Siakam Really Bring to the Hawks? But Before That, We Need to Know and Acknowledge What Are His Important Status and Accolades Currently in the Leauge First.

    (<>) Siakam has a ring and played a Huge role on his 2019 Championship Run meaning He Knows How to Win and perform in the biggest stage. He Is Not Some Of The Superstars Out There That Only Shows Up In The Regular Season.

    (<>) Was An All Star Last Season And Is An All NBA Caliber player, Was Selected to a Team 2 Seasons Ago.

    (<>) He is Objectively a Top 20-25 Player in the Leauge

    (<>) One Of The Best All Around Players Currently

  • So Back With the Question, What Can Siakam Bring to the Hawks? Siakam Can Give This Team More Star Power, More All Around Game and Versatility. He is an Excellent Offensive Player. His Scoring Game is Sometimes Underrated, Can Score Basically Anywhere on the Court, Either Inside or Outside. Especially on the Inside, He is a Massive Threat Out There. Can Basically Play Bully Ball Due To His Size, A Crafty Rim Attacker And A Nice Mid-Range Shooter. He is Pretty Good Outside As Well, An Amazing Outside Shooter For a Big Man, You Can't Just Leave Him Wide Open, Will Definitely Be An Excellent Floor Spacer for the Hawks. Last Season, He Averaged 24 PPG With 50% Fg and 32% From Deep. He is a Nice Playmaker Averaging 6 APG, One of the Best Playmaking Bigs in the Leauge. Can Clash for Boards Too Averaging 8 RPG. A Siakam, Dejounte and Trae Trio Offensively Would Be Really Deadly. Siakam is a Remarkable Defender as Well, He Can Play Lockdown Defense and Can Perfectly Fulfil His Role in the Defensive End. He Is a Great Playoff Performer Too, A Player Who You Can Rely On Big Moments (Check His 2019 & 2022 Postseason as a Basis) He's Basically a Perfect Player on Any Contending Teams Out There. On Top of That, I Really Credit How He Take Care of His Health. On His 7 Seasons in the NBA He Never Have a Season With Under 55 Games Played and He Averaged Over 70 Gps (Games Per Season) Out of 82 Games in His Entire Career. That is Pretty Rare for a Superstar Nowadays. So With All That, I Objectively Conclude Siakam Can Give This Franchise More Team Success and Real Title Hopes. Furthermore in This 3 Team Deal, Hawks Received Players Like Otto and Mcgee, 2 Solid Rotational Veterans for the Bench. Would Be Effective With the Correct Roles.


  • Bring In Nice Amount Of Quality Pieces In Return For Siakam (2 Excellent Young players, A Filler & Draft Capital) Probably One Of The Best Package If Not The Best That Masai Can Get If He Do Send Out Siakam.


  • They Traded For Capela, Probably The Player They Are Very Most Interested In Right Now. Capela is Arguably A Top 15 Center Currently, One Of The Best Interior Defenders And One Of The Best Rebounders In The Game. He Would Be A Great One-Two Combo With Luka, Those Lob Threats And Pick & Rolls Would Be Very Deadly For Opposing Defenses. Mavs Get Rid Of 2 Bad Contracts As Well So They Are Basically Just Giving Up The 2027 pick to Acquire Capela Which For Me Is A Very Great Deal. The 2027 Pick Is Also Top-8 protected. I See This As A Win Move For Dallas.
