Report: Hawks seeking high first-round pick in exchange for John Collins

The 10th place Atlanta Hawks might be looking to shake things up ahead of the March 25 trade deadline. 

According to The Athletic's Shams Charania , if they decide to move him, the Hawks are seeking a high first-round, lottery-level pick for John Collins

The 23-year-old was selected by the Hawks 19th overall in the 2017 draft. In 26 games this season, he's averaging 18.1 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game while shooting 54.3% from the field and 39.1% from deep. 

It's unclear which teams have shown interest in Collins, but many might not be willing to part ways with a lottery-level pick to acquire him before the deadline.
