Atlanta Hawks: NBA Draft Team Needs

    
May 27th, 2007
NBA Draft: Atlanta Hawks

 

2006-07 Record: 30-52

 

2007 Picks: 3rd, 11th

 

Team needs: Point guard, big man to pair next to Shelden Williams, backcourt depth.

 

Who to pick: With two lottery picks, the Hawks will look to address their two biggest issues, point guard and center. Mike Conley would be a good fit, although #3 might be too high to reach for him. The Hawks could look to grab a big man like Al Horford at #3, then go with Acie Law or Javaris Crittenton at #11 if Conley is off the board.
