The Atlanta Hawks are on a two-game losing streak and have a 34-35 record. That puts them at eight in the Eastern Conference withย  13 regular season games left to play. NBA insider Adrain Wojnarowski broke the news that Atlantaโ€™s SG Bogdan Bogdanovic is signing a four-year, $68 million contract extension to stay with the Hawks. He turned down an $18 million player option for the 2023-24 season in hopes of being able to sign an eventual long-term deal, which he has done.ย
