Hawks' John Collins is 'unlikely to be dealt before the deadline'

Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that the Hawks had expressed interest in Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons in recent weeks, with the two sides discussing a package of Collins, Bogdan Bogdanovic and draft compensation for Simmons. It's unclear where those talks currently stand.

This season, Collins is averaging 16.9 points, 7.9 rebounds, 1.3 threes and 1.1 blocks per game, while shooting 54.0% from the field, 39.7% from three and 79.1% from the free-throw line.
The 24-year-old is the Hawks' highest-paid player, earning $23,000,000 this season. He's under contract through the 2025-26 campaign, when he'll make $26,580,000.
After advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals last season, the Hawks have been one of the NBA's biggest disappointments this year, as they are currently 25-27 (which ranks 10th in the East). However, given their recent success, perhaps Atlanta is once again turning things around midseason.
