Hawksbeat Recap: Hawks See Red and Get A Defensive Hunter (Video)

Over the next few weeks you will see many posts about draft grades, winners and losers and at the end of the day the only thing that matters to Hawks GM Travis Schlenk is that he got his guy.


The Hawks walk away with DeAndre Hunter and Cam Reddish with the 4th and 10th picks respectively and Schlenk was a very happy man when he spoke with the media. He couldn’t speak about the Hunter pick because the deal hasn’t gone through yet but he was more than excited that Reddish fell to him at 10.

Reddish is still working through an injury and Schlenk mentioned how he probably won’t be ready for summer league but that they had no reservations about his health.
