Tier four features a variety of interesting prospects. Bruno Fernando who ranks number 21, did work out for the Atlanta Hawks and is an option at pick 35. However there is a decent chance that he could go in the first round, possibly as high as to the Atlanta Hawks at pick 17. The possible first round status also applies to microwave scorer Carson Edwards, our prospect 22. Chuma Okeke who ranks number 23 was trading toward being picked in round before suffering a knee injury. The Hawks would do well to select him, if he is available at 35. The team could be patient with his rehab and add a first round talent to add to the mix for the 2020-2021 season. Jontay Porter the brother of Trae Young’s best friend Michael Porter Jr. is another player with first round talent. However two knee injuries make him an extremely risky pick. Would the Hawks use a second round pick in hopes that it would help one day lure his brother Michael to sign here in free agency?

Tier five offers three names to watch, should the Atlanta Hawks decide to go the stash route in round two. That is certainly a possibility, however the second round options for the Atlanta Hawks have decreased over the last 48 hours. The Hawks traded pick number 44 to the Miami Heat, in exchange for a conditional second round pick and cash, according to Chris Vivlamore of the AJC. The team also just traded pick number 41 to the Golden State Warriors, for an unprotected second round pick in 2024 and cash. Brad Rowland of Peachtree Hoops has the story on the trade that just went down.

I want to personally commend Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk. Unlike the Danny Ferry regime, in which almost no rumors concerning the team were leaked, Schlenk has done a masterful job, with conflicting reports of Atlanta being interested in a plethora of players. This has thrown off experts who are trying to pin point what direction Atlanta is going and excited Hawks fans at the same time. To quote the great Steve Holman, long time radio announcer for the Atlanta Hawks, “One person knows what we (the Atlanta Hawks) are doing on draft night and he’s not talking.” The countdown is almost done and it’s almost time for the 2019 NBA Draft. Christmas is almost here for Atlanta Hawks fans!
