The 2014 NBA Draft is tonight and for the Atlanta Hawks, that means… well, no one is really sure what it means, but there is one thing you can be sure of: this draft is going to be awesome. Analysts within the industry have been talking about the quality and depth of this year’s draft class since last year, and with the added fun of LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony possibly looking for new places to play, the trade rumors should be flying left and right all day.
In addition, there are tons of interesting players that could be real fits on Mike Budenholzer’s squad, and with the aforementioned talent that is filling out the draft it’s certainly possibly that Atlanta could land a lottery-caliber player with the 15th overall seleciton. Or, they could trade up and get someone even better. Or, they could trade down and get some serious depth. Or… you can just check out Steven Zymkowitz’s Atlanta Hawks draft breakdown. He’s the guy with all the details.
