The Atlanta Hawks are reportedly “convinced” on acquiring Deandre Ayton this offseason, according to Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report.
“Atlanta is definitely another team that I’ve heard for Ayton. There’s one person I talked to pretty consistently who’s like convinced Ayton is the guy that Atlanta wants,” said Fischer on The Athletic’s NBA Show Podcast (h/t Pro Basketball Talk).
Ayton, who has been seeking a max contract extension, is reportedly “more likely than not” to leave the Suns this offseason.
Ayton has been rumored with several teams, including the Blazers.
