The Atlanta Hawks continue to search for help at the small forward position and may be interested in former Los Angeles Lakers small forward Wesley Johnson according to a report by RealGM's Shams Charania.

Johnson appeared in 76 games with the Lakers in 2015 averaging 9.9 points on 41 percent shooting. Including 35 percent from three-point range.

The departure of DeMarre Carroll left Atlanta some depth issues to work on on the wing position. The Hawks were able to re-sign Paul Millsap and brought in Tiago Splitter in a trade with San Antonio to address the front court. Johnson has good size at 6-7, is a good shooter and would bring some experience having played a lot of minutes over the last few seasons.
