The NBA trade deadline is Feb. 19 at 3 p.m. The Hawks’ basketball operations staff has had, and will continue to have, conversations about ways to improve the team. “For us to be open to improving the group and adding more depth, with Thabo healthy or without Thabo healthy or without Thabo having this injury, it’s kind of the same mindset,” coach Mike Budenolzer said. “We really like our group.
