Pascal Siakam - Atlanta Hawks

Much like the Bulls, the Toronto Raptors are another team shrouded in trade rumors. As Charania said in his aforementioned article, Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby are two players teams are keeping an eye on, and one was just traded. A likely suitor for the All-Star's services is a team that has already tried trading for Siakam very recently: Atlanta.

According to Charania, the Hawks and Raptors held "intense" conversations about a Siakam trade in the off-season. Obviously, the two sides did not reach an agreement, but they have held talks, so it's not going to be surprising if those talks continue or pick back up closer to the deadline. The Hawks are 12-19 on the season and could use an added dose of star power to try and turn things around.

If the Hawks continue to drop games, it would not be surprising to see them intensify talks to try and add another star alongside Trae Young and Dejounte Murray. That would form a very intriguing Big 3 and could help fuel a big turnaround, potentially making them a premier contender in the East. It just remains to be seen if that interest in Siakam is still lingering.

The Hawks have several compelling players who could surface in trade talks for Siakam, including DeAndre Hunter and Clint Capela. According to HoopsHype's Michael Scotto, Hunter was indeed brought up in those trade talks this past off-season. He's an intriguing young player who would fit nicely in whatever Toronto's plans would be post-Siakam.

Siakam could be the biggest trade target on the market.
