What's funny about it. Playing second fiddle to KAT would not be good for his career.

OO is possibly the best player in the draft, but Collins, Capela and Okongwu would be a log jam.

And Hunter wants to put in some minutes at the 4 also.

Is that an insult? Why would you want to do that. By the way. Get my name right. It's KGdaBom. B is capitalized and no second b. I'm just pointing out why Okongwu might not be a great fit. If the Hawks pick him it's still a good pick.

Not an insult. A coincidence your names are similar.

Wesson is a new and interesting name to pop up. A 6-9 270 guy that can shoot with the smaller guards in this draft. If he has plus 4-5 to length that just adds to his profile.

Easy take for pick 50. One could call this a hot take or w/v but that pick in the 2nd should yield a guy that should make the team. I see alot of interesting names in the 2nd that fit certain niches.

“That’s my home, so that’d be like a dream-come-true for me if I play for the Hawks,” Edwards told Bleacher Report.

“I’m real cool with (current Hawks players) Trae Young and Cam Reddish, so playing for the Hawks would be crazy.”

If we felt strongly about him our front office should be able to pull off a trade. I just have no reason to believe it happens.

I'd love for Minnesota to pass on him so he's not stuck playing for them. Like the Vegas odds suggest I believe he goes 1st overall. Current odds -200.

Mixed feelings on him. I feel like he’s gonna be a star/superstar but might not be a winning player. I hate to put that label on him but I feel like in 20 years when we look back he’s the type of guy that had an Iverson lite Dwayne Wade lite but never a consistent winner.

I like our core and our plan in place to build pieces around Trae/Cam/Collins/Hunter but at the same time I don’t think I’d be mad at all if we were to move up and get him. It would cost our pick obviously and Huerter and another future asset most likely. Tough call, I could go either way on this one. Preferably stay where we are and get one of Gwu/Hali/Okoro and keep building.
