In what was a busy Saturday with league transactions following the end of the NBA’s moratorium period, the Hawks made one of their previously agreed upon trades official.

The Hawks announced the deal that brings Allen Crabbe, a conditional 2020 first-round draft pick and the draft rights to No. 17 pick Nickeil Alexander-Walker to Atlanta and sends Taurean Prince and a 2021 second-round pick to Brooklyn. Alexander-Walker will end up with New Orleans as part of the pending trade for the No. 4 pick De’Andre Hunter coming to the Hawks.

“Allen is a proven veteran in this league and adds another 3-point threat on the wing for us. We’re happy to welcome him to the Hawks,” general manager Travis Schlenk said in a statement.

Crabbe, a guard, has appeared in 344 career games, including 112 starts, with Portland and Brooklyn and averaged 9.5 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 24.6 minutes. Last season with the Nets, he averaged 9.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 26.3 minutes over 43 games, including 20 starts. He was a second-round pick, No. 31, of Cleveland in 2013.

Prince was the No. 12 overall pick in 2016 and spent three seasons with the Hawks. He appeared in 196 games, including 139 starts and averaged 11.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 25.5 minutes.

“On behalf of our team and organization, I’d like to thank Taurean for his contributions over his three years with the Hawks,” Schlenk said in a statement. “We wish him and his family the best of luck as he continues his career in Brooklyn.”

The Hawks could still complete trades for Hunter and Bruno Fernando. The Anthony Davis deal between New Orleans and the Los Angeles Lakers must be completed before the Hunter and Fernando deals can be announced.
