The Atlanta Hawks are really ready to make some moves and free up some space in the offseason. On Tuesday, the Hawks shipped center Dwight Howard to the Charlotte Hornets and on Wednesday, the Hawks seem to be shopping Paul Millsap around.

Brian Windhorst of ESPN told Sportscenter that the Hawks are looking to make a sign-and-trade deal with teams. Windhorst added that the Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings and Denver Nuggets were some of the teams Windhorst said are willing to give Millsap the max deal.

As NBC Sports noted, the Hawks don’t have much leverage in a trade. Millsap can’t make more money with a sign-and-trade under the new CBA rules. Teams would only bite on Millsap to clear out space of their own.
