That’s a lot to digest.. we know. In essence the Hawks pretty much sold the pick.

Another one …

Hawks GM Travis Schlenk wasn’t done wheeling and dealing as news broke this morning that the Hawks and Warriors agreed on a deal regarding the the 41st pick.

The Hawks will send the 41st pick in tonight’s draft to Golden State for $1.3 million and a conditional 2024 2nd round pick.
