Atlanta Hawks Draft talk series, who will the Atlanta Hawks draft at 20? (Podcast)

It is that time again to be inundated with draft talk and for those of us that aren’t typically draft guru’s we take a few weeks out of the year and dive into draft profiles, scouting reports and scouting videos. For perspective all of our picks and opinions are for entertainment purposes only so don’t go betting your mortgage based on something the Hawksbeat said.

Fresh off a deep playoff run, the Atlanta Hawks and their fans are really excited about the upcoming season and the first leg of that journey begins with the NBA Draft. Of course here at the Hawksbeat we will also dive into free agency, salary cap and summer league but for now it’s all about the draft.

The Atlanta Hawks will be picking 20th in the first round and also have the 48th pick which will be in the second round. We should give a disclaimer that this is what they have now but Hawks’ President and General Manager Travis Schlenk has been known to make moves on draft day so we will have to wait and see.
