Marco Belinelli Reportedly Plans to Sign with 76ers After Hawks Contract Buyout

Marco Belinelli

They were reportedly interested in guard Joe Johnson, but Johnson is reportedly committed to signing with Houston once he is bought out by Sacramento.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Hawks and Belinelli are finalizing an agreement that will buy out his contract and make him a free agent.

There were rumors the team was eyeing up Hawks wing Marco Belinelli at the trade deadline, but the two sides couldn't agree to a deal.

Philadelphia general manager Bryan Colangelo announced on Friday that it's possible rookie Markelle Fultz won't return this season.

The Atlanta Hawks waived guard/forward Marco Belinelli today.

Averaging 11.4 points per game, the Italian shot 92-for-247 from beyond the three-point line off the bench for Atlanta. 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.

Belinelli is a career 37.7 percent 3-point shooter, and is shooting slightly below that (37.2) this season.
