The Hawks Draft Pick is Looking Good These Days



Since the Kirk Hinrich trade the Atlanta Hawks have really been struggling. They are 3-7 in their last 10 games and their schedule does not get much easier. As of right now they are 40-32 and their draft pick is sitting at 18/ 19 (Tie=same record as Memphis). Their upcoming schedule still has games against top teams including a brutal 4 game stretch against Orlando, Boston, Houston, and San Antonio. They also have to play Miami and Indiana (I think Indiana is better than ATL right now). It is not unreasonable to think they could end these last 10 games with only 3 wins. New York and Philly are right on ATL's heels (philly 2 games back and NY 4 games back). I know New York has been struggling but the remainder of their schedule is CAKE (Bucks, Bobcats, Nets, Cavs, Raptors, Nets again). I would not be surprised if both Philly and NY leapfrogged ATL. If that were to happen Atlanta's pick could end up at #16 (Indiana will have the worst record of any team to make the playoffs so they will have the 15th pick). A selection that high is a great asset. I would love to see a BOYD strategy where we pick up another top 20 pick and use that extra pick to package with Atlanta's pick at #16 and trade back into the top 10. Even if we cannot move up, however, I think we will be able to select a player who can make an impact at 16 (Chris Singleton, John Henson, Marcus Morris, Jordan Hamilton). I hate to say it, but I will be rooting for the Knicks and Sixers the rest of the season.
