Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that the Atlanta Hawks may be looking to move forward Marvin Williams.
Atlanta is shopping small forward Marvin Williams, who regressed a little after a promising 2008-09 season. The Warriors have already contacted the Hawks and might call Houston, if swingmen Trevor Ariza and Shane Battier are really on the trade block.
This report comes shortly after the team has been rumored to offer a huge max extension to Joe Johnson. Williams was given a big dollar contract extension last summer and, while the Hawks can sign both players under the NBA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, it would require a huge outlay of cash that Hawks ownership might not be willing to sustain.
