    Landing Zion and Cam would be a beautiful draft. Trade a next years unprotected pick, Bazemore, and Miles Plumme for LBJ if the Lakers are that desperate to get rid of him. Re-sign Vince, Sign Danny Green, Al Horford, and Patric Beverly to team friendly one year deals...

    Young/ Beverly
    Green/ Huerter
    LBJ/ Carter/Reddish
    Collins/Williamson
    Horford/Williamson

    Yep make both Rooks earn theyíre minutes! And who better than LBJ, for Zion to learn from!..... everything thing after the first line is a dream and a damn good one.

    If Atlanta lands number 2, would you offer Trae Young for Ben Simmons?

    I can't answer that one bc I like Trae a lot. Not only as a player but as a person. Morant looks like a star. If we had #2, how about we trade that pick and Dallas' pick for number 1? Then put 2 or all 3 2nd rd picks to move up in draft. Atlanta would look more attractive in the basketball world where more players would entertain the idea of playing here. Got a solid young team and a good coach.

    ?Prince?
    Collins
    Williamson
    Young
    ???


    Huerter
    Len
    Spellman
    Carter (wants play another year)
    Bembry
    ???
    ???
    ???

    PHX is about the only team I see as of now that would entertain trading down for Morant or possibly even taking him #1.

    Yeah but wouldn't be surprised if they aim for Williamson either. I just thought it's a shot (very slim) for the Hawks. Hey, we could land 1 and 6 but again, VERY slim lol. 10.5% at #1 doesn't put it out of discussion...

    A lot of big changes can happen this off-season. Not only bc of draft but bc of the many top players who will be fa. Wished being here in Atl would be more appealing for these NBA players but you never know...

    Geez, say, Williamson and Cullver. Trade Prince for strong bench player, while focus on deep shooters with 2nd rd picks (trade to move up?), and sign Durant (kidding) or a big name to fill out our starting line nicely. Klay would be a nice addition but gotta flash big bucks his way...

    Culver
    Williamson
    Collins
    Young
    Thompson


    I like Reddish and Hunter too. Either way, need couple years to develop in the league...

    While picks 1 and 2 are the obious, Picks 3-11 will be interesting. To me it seems guys can be picked anywhere in that order with a few questionable, like Bol Bol, who could be steaks in this draft...

    After reading over the draft possibilities, we can not land 1 and 6. 1 and 9 are a possibility. However if the Dal pick does not land one through three ( Dal would keep their pick in that circumstance) it falls into their win loss slot automatically. So 1 and 9 are the best we can do.

    I know Culver and Hunter are better players now! I just see so much more upside with Reddish. One of my biggest issues with the Hawks over the years has been them attempting to draft safe picks. That comes to mind in the drafting of Childress, over Iguodala and Sheldon Williams over Brandon Roy. I donít think this is the time for us to draft the safe player. I think we should be drafting the most talented player ( regardless of whoís better today). Who will be better in 3yrs would be my thought process.

    If Cam is gone by 9 and we canít trade up. The int prospect Doumbouya is starting to become really intriguing! Hays and Bol would also be options. Little should not be disregarded.

    The teams that I think would be willing to give up huge assets to move up got Morant.....
    Chi
    PHX
    Ny
    Dal

    Others could get in the bidding if we are land #2, but I think these teams would be in immediately if they land out of the top 2.

    Chi could be an easy trade partner... sending #2 and KBís contract to Chi for their 2019 pick, 2020 unprotected pick, and K.Dunn. This assuming they fall out of the top 3. Maybe just 2019 pick, Dunn and the right to swap in 2020 if they are still in the top 4.

    If the Hawks landed #2 pick, I think I would want to stick with Trae and get most for #2 (Morant). I've been liking Trae more as the season progresses. Do I think Morant more athletic and plays better D than Trae, absolutely. Problem is, Trae has already proven himself and putting up better numbers thru the season. Morant hasn't yet, not saying he won't. I just have enough confident in Trae. I think he will have a SUPER career. Put someone like Culver alongside with him and he'll have more floor spacing. Reason why I say Culver is bc I think going in between best of what we can get and the worse via draft plus Dallas', I say we get Culver and Hunter. This happens, offer Vuvevic max as soon as the FA market opens. I'm content with this lineup moving forward:



    Hunter
    Collins
    Vucevic
    Young
    Culver


    Huerter
    Prince
    Bembry
    Spellman
    Len
    Carter
