Atlanta is among the teams the Cavs have recruited to take Marcus Thornton from Nets in deal that would unload Jarrett Jack, source says.

Cavs have engaged Hawks in trade talks about a week ago, source says. Clearing Jack’s $6.3m salary is key to opening max slot for LeBron.

The Hawks, also in the mix for Cavs free agent Luol Deng, have not shown much interest in taking on Thornton’s contract, source says.
