After engaging in a mock trade with the Charlotte Hornets' Twitter account on Tuesday afternoon, the Atlanta Hawks' Twitter account teased another mock trade with the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday.

The Hawks and Hornets conducted a mock trade which included trading a snap with a puppy filter for a right to swap 2018 Draft Tweets hours before the real Hawks-Hornets trade that sent veteran center Dwight Howard to Charlotte.

News broke on Tuesday evening that the Hawks traded Howard and the 31st overall pick in Thursday's 2017 NBA Draft for Hornets' Miles Plumlee, Marco Belinelli and the 41st overall pick in the 2017 Draft.

A trade between the Warriors and Hawks could make sense with former assistant general manager Travis Schlenk taking over as Hawks new head of basketball operations and general manager in May.

The Warriors have not yet responded to the Hawks’ trade Tweet.

After Tuesday’s mock trade turned into a real trade, Hawks fans freaked out upon seeing the Hawks’ Wednesday Twitter trade proposal to the Warriors.
