The Atlanta Hawks may be keeping their core intact but they could still end up tinkering with their roster. ESPN.com's Marc Stein reports that the Utah Jazz are shopping for a point guard and could turn to the Atlanta Hawks Shelvin Mack.

Utah head coach Quin Snyder is familiar with Mack who has proven over the years to be a steady if not spectacular option at the point when given minutes. The emergence of Dennis Schröder over the last two seasons has relegated Mack into a bench role. He has played in just 24 games this season and is averaging 3.9 points and 1.6 assists while shooting 42 percent from the field.

Trading Mack wouldn't likely bring much of a return but would open a roster spot and allow the Hawks to pursue a buyout players or to bring in a free agent.
