Prospect Spotlight -- Tyrese Haliburton

Moderators: dms269, Jamaaliver, HMFFL

Is Ty Haliburton worth a lottery selection for our Hawks?

No way we're spending a top-10 pick on another PG

Wouldn't it be great to have this guy as Trae's backup and occasionally playing with him as the 2 guard!!

Teams that have done their background research have come away thinking similarly. Particularly, they point to his maturity and emotional intelligence. Sources have said that Haliburton will be able to adjust to just about any situation he’s put in early in his career, and will find success. Consistently, he’s come up as being one of the most impressive human beings in this class. This played a role in his move up to No. 5 on my board. More than that, though, the more tape I watch on Haliburton, the more I see pretty substantial upside if he’s able to fill out his frame with 20-25 more pounds throughout his career. I feel confident he’s going to be effective quickly in the NBA because of his diversity of skill-set as a potential secondary ballhandler. But there is some upside for more.

Ditto. Would be a great backup PG and occasionally a 2 guard with Young!

Hollinger quote on Haliburton:
"I think Halliburton is by far the best fit. He’s a good spot-up shooter who has the size and length to guard twos, but he’s a good enough ballhandler and passer to take turns at the point when Young is out of the game. I’m high on him overall (he’s sixth on my board), and the fit with Atlanta is near-perfect. The background on him is off the charts, too. If the Hawks don’t move up in the lottery, I think he should be the prime target."


In a perfect world, we claim the #1, trade down a few slots and gain both Haliburton and another asset that can help us acquire Oladipo.

The ghosts of David Skywalker Thompson and Marvin The Human Eraser Webster have to be cheering for us.

Tyrese Halburton, G, Iowa State

Haliburton is the glue guy of this draft. Even if he never ascends to superstar status, his extremely advanced basketball IQ (which shows up in every pass he makes) should earn him an NBA role for the next decade-plus. At 6-foot-5, he can see over the top of defenses and is active using that length as a team defender (2.5 steals per game his sophomore season), though he can get outmuscled on-ball at just 175 pounds.

Add shooting splits of 50.4% from the field and 41.9% from long-range (5.9 attempts per!) and it’s easy to get excited about Haliburton’s prospects in the modern NBA. His handle is a little loose and the form on his jumper a tad stilted, but Synergy ranks him in the 99th percentile as a spot up shooter and 98th percentile in catch-and-shoot, so he can still impact the game off the ball; moreover, he’s dead-eye with his feet set, no matter how it looks coming out.
