The sweet-shooting wing has the Hawks’ attention.

Per a report from Chris Haynes at ESPN, the Atlanta Hawks are on a shortlist of teams who have interest in Washington’s restricted free agent Bojan Bogdanovic:

Bogdanovic shot 39 percent from three during his time in Washington, after being traded from Brooklyn at the deadline in February, and would be a welcome addition to a wing corps in Atlanta bereft of outside shooting talent. Kent Bazemore and Taurean Prince project as the starting wings for the Hawks on opening night, so adding Bogdanovic to the fold would help to open things up for the rest of the team.

TNT’s David Aldridge is also reporting that Atlanta has interest in Bogdanovic and have become the leaders in the clubhouse for an offer sheet once the moratorium ends on July 6:

Washington has the ability to match on any offer the Hawks give Bogdanovic, but the Wizards’ might not be willing to do so if they’ve already given a max contract to Otto Porter, who also happens to play the same position as Bogdanovic. There won’t be any official movement until July 6, but the Hawks might be knocking on Bogdanovic’s door as soon as the moratorium ends.
