The 2019 NBA trade deadline passed with the Hawks making a minor deal, sending Tyler Dorsey to the Memphis Grizzlies for former Hawk Shelvin Mack — who they are expected to waive.
The Hawks have not been shy about making deals in years past. Here’s take a look at some recent Hawks deadline deals:
2017: A day before the trade deadline, the Hawks acquired power forward Ersan Ilyasova from the 76ers in exchange for backup center Tiago Splitter. The Hawks also sent their second-round pick and one owned from the Heat to the 76ers for the lesser of their two second-round picks. A day later the Hawks shipped Mike Scott to Phoenix for cash.
2016: The Hawks worked a three-team trade with the Bulls and Jazz. Atlanta added guard Kirk Hinrich from Chicago, sent guard Shelvin Mack to the Jazz and sent guard/forward Justin Holiday to the Bulls. The Jazz also sent a 2018 second-round pick (that came from the Nuggets) to the Bulls.
2014: At the deadline, the Hawks acquired forward Antwan Jamison from the Los Angeles Clippers in exchange for the draft rights to Cenk Akyol. Akyol, a guard from Turkey, was drafted Hawks in 2005. Neither he nor Jamison would ever suit up for Atlanta. Jamison was waived by the Hawks the day after the trade.
2013: Hawks send guard Anthony Morrow to Dallas in exchange for guard Dahntay Jones. Morrow was acquired by the Hawks in an offseason trade that sent Joe Johnson to the Nets. Jones, whose contract expired at season's end, did not remain with the team.
2008: With just four days till the deadline, the Hawks acquired guard Mike Bibby from the Sacramento Kings in exchange for Anthony Johnson, Tyronn Lue, Shelden Williams, Lorenzen Wright and a 2008 second round draft pick. Bibby was critical in the Hawks late push for the playoffs.
2005: After just one season in Atlanta, the Hawks traded forward Antoine Walker and cash to Boston in exchange for guard Gary Payton, forward Tom Gugliotta, center Michael Stewart, and a future first-round pick. Payton never played for the Hawks. He was released by Atlanta and re-signed with Boston for the remainder of the season.
2004: Rasheed Wallace’s career as a Hawk lasted all of one game. Atlanta acquired Wallace from Portland and shortly before the deadline sent the forward to Detroit as part of a three-team trade. The Pistons sent center Zeljko Rebraca, guard Bob Sura and a conditional first-round draft pick to Atlanta. Detroit sent guards Lindsey Hunter, Chucky Atkins, a first-round pick and cash to Boston, while the Celtics shipped forward Chris Mills to the Hawks and guard Mike James to Detroit.
2001: Atlanta sent center Dikembe Mutombo and forward Roshown McLeod to Philadelphia in exchange for center Theo Ratliff, forward Toni Kukoc, center Nazr Mohammed and guard Pepe Sanchez. Ratliff lead the league in blocks in three seasons in Atlanta and would later be shipped to Portland in the Rasheed Wallace deal.
2000: Anthony Johnson knows a thing, or two, or three about deadline deals with Atlanta. In his first of three stints in Atlanta, the guard was sent in 2000 to Orlando in exchange for a conditional second-round draft choice. In 2007, the team acquired Johnson from the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for the Hawks' second-round draft pick. And in 2008, he would be sent to Sacramento as part of the Bibby trade.
1996: Atlanta acquired forward Christian Laettner and center Sean Rooks from Minnesota in exchange for guard Spud Webb and center Andrew Lang. Laettner played two more seasons in Atlanta before being traded to Detroit for center Scot Pollard and a conditional first-round pick.
1994: Hawks traded superstar forward Dominique Wilkins to the Los Angeles Clippers for standout forward Danny Manning and a conditional first-round draft pick. Unable to sign Manning to a long-term deal, the forward moved to Phoenix the following year.
