According to NBA insider Marc Stein, the Atlanta Hawks remain firm in their high price for Dejounte Murray with plenty of time left before the Feb. 8 trade deadline.
“A team willing to meet Atlanta’s demands in a Murray trade has yet to emerge. The Hawks are said to be seeking two future firsts and team-friendly contracts in return. But we’re still almost three weeks away from someone making an offer like that,” Stein said on Jan. 19 during his weekly chat with paid subscribers of the substack newsletter.
The Knicks’ immediate success with the OG Anunoby trade gave them pause in pursuing Murray at all costs.
