Atlanta Hawks Speaking With Big Name Free Agent
The Atlanta Hawks have already made one move in free agency, signing swing man Thabo Sefolosha. Despite not having big man Al Horford for much of last season, the Hawks had a nice year, capped with a first round exit where they gave the Indiana Pacers some problems.
Nobody is expecting them to make a huge free agent splash, but then again, no one expected them to sign Paul Millsap last offseason. While nothing is close to final, it looks like they’re trying to pull off another surprising signing: Luol Deng.
Told talks advancing between free-agent F Luol Deng (Cavs) and Hawks, though nothing final.

Deng is being courted by plenty of big time contenders, so seeing him talking to the Hawks is a bit of a surprise.
Snagging Millsap and Deng in consecutive offseasons would be quite a win for Atlanta.
