aggressive movement of in the . Those from Georgia have achieved the hitherto star of San Antonio Spurs in exchange of , three first round draft picks and a swap pick. The Texans had made it very clear that the only way the move was going to be possible was at the level of Khris Middleton, that is, with many first rounds in between, something that has ended up happening. We assume that Gregg Popovich’s men will end up moving Gallinari as well in exchange for other rounds. Obviously they officially begin their reconstruction period after two decades competing without reservations. The Hawks, meanwhile, pair Murray with Trae Young, forming one of the best backcourts in the league.

It must be remembered that Dejounte Murray still has two years left on his contract to collect (16.5 kilos next season 17.7 in 2023/24). In his sixth season in the NBA he has taken the definitive leap towards becoming a star, becoming an All Star after averaging 21.1 points, 9.2 assists, 8.3 rebounds and 2 steals per game. As we have mentioned, in Atlanta they think he is the perfect complement for Trae Young in the back court to try to do great things again and go far in the Western Conference playoffs. First big transfer just one day before the start of free agency in the NBA.

The details of the transfer

In addition to Gallinari, the Hawks are sending the Spurs in exchange for Murray a 2023 first-round pick via Charlotte and their own 2025 and 2027 rounds, plus a 2026 swap pick. What we’ve discussed, total rebuild on the Texans.
