The Atlanta Hawks are trading shooting guard Kevin Huerter to the Sacramento Kings for wings Justin Holiday, Maurice Harkless, and a future first-round pick, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Sacramento also sent a 2024 lottery-protected first-round pick to Atlanta in the deal, Wojnarowski adds. The pick protection will reportedly change to top 12 in '25 and top 10 in '26 if it doesn't convey.

Atlanta drafted Huerter with the 19th overall pick in 2018. He made the All-Rookie second team after averaging 9.7 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists, and almost a steal in 75 games.

The 23-year-old has been a consistent threat from beyond the arc, shooting 38% from three across his four years in the NBA.

Atlanta reportedly signed Holiday's younger brother, Aaron, earlier Friday. The Holiday brothers previously played together with the Indiana Pacers.

The Hawks also acquired All-Star guard Dejounte Murray from the San Antonio Spurs before free agency for veteran forward Danilo Gallinari and a haul of first-round picks.
