NBA Draft: Atlanta Hawks Have Nearly Limitless Options After Nets Trade

NBA Draft: Atlanta Hawks Have Nearly Limitless Options After Nets Trade

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Brooklyn is sending Allen Crabbe, the 17th overall pick in the 2019 Draft and a 2020 lottery-protected first-rounder to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for Taurean Prince and a 2021 second-round pick.

Brooklyn, per Wojnarowski, will have around $46 million in cap space to work with this summer.

Though the Nets liked Crabbe at the time, signing him to an offer sheet the prior summer before Portland matched, he didn't amount to much over two years in Brooklyn. To sort it out, here are the latest NBA Trade Grades for both teams.

However, the Nets' dream scenario would be to land Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant in addition to Irving, Wojnarowski adds.

The Nets built a playoff squad this past season with D'Angelo Russell leading the charge as a scoring point guard. This clears space for him, or perhaps another star free agent.

The smartphone will go on sale from June 11 and it will be available from retail stores, Nokia website and Flipkart . Inside, the Nokia 2 .2 is powered by a quad-core MediaTek Helio A22 chipset with either 2 GB or 3 GB RAM onboard.

In an intriguing bit of symmetry, the two teams in the West Coast's biggest city are also positioned be also be major players in free agency.

If the Nets' 2020 first-round pick falls in the protected range (picks No. 1 through 14) in 2020, Atlanta will get the Nets' lottery-protected first-round pick in 2021, sources told ESPN's Zach Lowe.

That $68 million would be enough for two max salary slots.

Other prominent players expected to be available when free agency officially starts at 6 p.m. on June 30 (contracts can not be signed, however, until noon on July 6), include Golden State's Klay Thompson, the Charlotte Hornets' Kemba Walker and the Philadelphia 76ers' Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris.

Atlanta could package those picks to move up in the draft, or include them in other deals to avoid picking three first-rounders in what's considered a weak draft.
