In terms of the upcoming NBA draft on June 22, the Atlanta Hawks own the 19th pick in the first round. We offered five first-round targets for the Hawks on Tuesday, so here’s the next step.
The second round of the draft starts with Atlanta at pick No. 31 and ends with the Hawks at 60. With two picks in the second round, here are four options to consider.
Ike Anigbogu, C 6’10” Freshman — UCLA
With his size, Anigbogu has the potential to be a force on the defensive end.
Jordan Bell, F 6’8” Junior — Oregon
Bell has impressed many of the scouts who were in attendance for the NBA draft combine by dominating on both ends of the floor.
Sindarius Thornwell, SG 6’5” Senior — South Carolina
Thornwell can make an impact by being an energy guy on the floor, being a good on-the-ball defender and generating points at the foul line.
Dillon Brooks, G/F 6’6” Junior — Oregon
Brooks has the potential to develop into a good scorer off of the bench in the NBA due to his size and skills. He will need to work harder on defense to see more time on the floor.
