Hawks Marco Belinelli reportedly finalizing contract buyout

Belinelli has averaged 11.4 points per game this season for the Hawks. Atlanta was unable to trade Belinelli before Thursday's trade deadline, and now it appears he'll be bought out.

The Hawks let him go because they wanted to give their younger players more minutes. "I can't answer that question because we don't know the answer to that".

Therefore, in today's perimeter-centric National Basketball Association, it wasn't expected to be long before he found a new home.

The Sixers were one of several playoff teams and contenders to offer Belinelli, a savvy veteran shooting guard, a roster spot for the balance of the season. If they are able to keep this up, the Sixers should make the postseason for the first time since the 2011-12 campaign, and with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons in the fold, it's possible they can make some noise if they get there.

The 76ers have won three-in-a-row and sit eighth place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 28-25. Judging by his natural shooting ability, he will most likely spell J.J. Redick and will be able to offer almost the same exact skill set off the bench.

"There's always a chance that he's going to be out there soon, and there's a chance that he's not going to play this year", he said, per NBC Sports Philadelphia's Jessica Camerato.
