Hawks acquires Kings’ Dewayne Dedmon

The Atlanta Hawks are being active before the trade deadline. They have made two trades in two days.

After acquiring Clint Capela on Tuesday, the Hawks brought back a familiar face on Wednesday. But the only question is will be remain or re-routed elsewhere in another trade.

The Hawks acquired big man Dewayne Dedmon in a trade with the Sacramento Kings. Atlanta also acquired a 2020 second-round draft pick and a 2021 second-round draft pick.

Dedmon played for the Hawks from 2017-2019. On July 8, 2019, he signed a three-year, $40 million deal with the Kings.

The journey man will have to wait until Thursday at 3 pm to see if it’ll have a new home or will remain with the Hawks. If he is bought out, the Houston Rockets would likely have interested in him after sending Capela away.

In exchange for Dedmon and the picks, the Kings acquired forward Jabari Parker. Center Alex Len was also part of the deal.

Like Dedmon, Parker also a free agent signing this past summer. He signed a two-year, $13 million deal with the Hawks in July, as well.
