Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports on the Hawks retiring Pete Maravich‘s No. 44 jersey. A date has not been announced.
Vivlamore also reports that Paul Millsap and Mike Budenholzer have spoken about the trade speculation. It seems to have been a positive interaction, but not many details were shared.
Adam McGee of HoopsHabit believes that the timing is right for the Hawks to trade Paul Millsap. Young assets to slot in around Dennis Schroder, Kent Bazemore, and Dwight Howard are what they need most.
