Belinelli will still get a chance to join a winner, though.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
The 31-year-old Belinelli provided little to the rebuilding Hawks – except the team performing horribly with him on the court (-10.1 per 100 possessions) and improving draft position. He’s a good 3-point shooter, but there are reasons nobody traded for him.
Belinelli is due $2,313,987 the rest of the season. We’ll see how much he gave up, and he’ll probably be happier on a better team. Plenty could use more shooting.
But it’s unlikely he’s a major difference-maker in the playoffs.
