If Utah Jazz’s Rudy Gobert’s trade is cold, the Hawks will want to give their backup to Oneka Okongwu time in court anyway. So Capella is going to get out one way or another.

Therefore, it seems certain that all Hawks players will be available for trades except Point Guard Tray Young. According to Fisher, the package, which includes John Collins and Capella, should attract interested parties. In other words, the goal is still Gobert, but even if the Frenchman does not come, the team wants to hear proposals from the two people in the paint.

The NBA’s 2020-21 rebound leader, Capella has a contract by 2025 and will receive $ 18.2 million in the next campaign.

Russell, once an all-star, is entering the final year of his contract worth $ 31.3 million.

Heat may be the fate of Anunobi

And couldn’t the Miami Heat be better defensively? According to journalist Sean Downey, from the website Heavy, Winger OG Anunobi can send his talent to South Beach. On the other hand, Tyler Hero and center Omer Yurtzeven will go to the Canadian team.

However, the first thing to evaluate is that the hero wants to start the coming season. He is not necessarily guaranteed to move to Toronto because the team has Gary Trent Jr., a great pitcher and a better defender than Hero.

Youvert Seven is a young pivot (23 years old), but he showed service when he was called. In 12 games as a starter, the Turkish average averaged 12.1 points, 12.7 rebounds and 50.8% shooting in almost 29 minutes.
