Sources:- Atlanta Hawks acquire guard Dejounte Murray from San Antonio Spurs for three first-round picks, Danilo Gallinari

The Atlanta Hawks are trading forward Danilo Gallinari and three first-round picks to the San Antonio Spurs for All-Star guard Dejounte Murray, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Hawks are sending a 2023 first-round pick via the Charlotte Hornets, and their own 2025 and 2027 first-round picks to the Spurs in the deal, sources told Wojnarowski. The deal also includes a pick swap in 2026, the sources said.

The ’25 and ’27 first-rounders are unprotected, a league source told ESPN’s Zach Lowe.

The trade gives the Hawks a formidable backcourt with Murray joining All-NBA guard Trae Young.

Murray, 25, averaged a career-best 21.1 points, 9. 2 assists, 8.3 rebounds and 2.0 steals last season, earning All-Star honors for the first time in his career.

He is scheduled to make $16.6 million next season and will be an unrestricted free agent in 2024.

Gallinari, 33, averaged 11.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 66 games last season, his second with the Hawks.

His $21.5 million salary for the 2022-23 season is partially guaranteed.
