Hawks take Culver?
My bet would be Cam Reddish.
They already have Huerter at SG and just traded Prince away. Not to mention Cam being a "sexier" pick with more upside.
Reddish should be there at 8 though.
If I’m Atlanta I keep 8/10, doesn’t feel worth giving up for #4. Take Reddish or Hunter at 8 and then maybe a big like Hayes at 10.
From what was said the trade for 3 and 4 with us offering 8 and 10 to the knicks and then the Pels was reliant on if barrett was there. Barrett would for sure be there at 3 but the knicks declined the offer supposedly. Then it got quiet and you heard that Knicks were really high on Garland at 3 and at that point you heard the Hawks offering a package for 4 which to me seems that trade is probably for Barrett as well if Garland does indeed go 3 to the knicks leaving barrett at 4 for a trade up from us. I personally don't have any insiders at all but theirs a few people on the Falcons website who actually does have an insider or 2 and has proven it over the years. This is info from him and overall he has been pretty reliable with the small hiccup here and there when he does get good info. Take it for what it's worth though but it sounds pretty legit based on the rumors we have been hearing and when each rumor popped up.
Now as for Hayes at 10 i keep seeing that over and over and i really don't understand it at all for the Hawks. Im not against a center at all but Hayes would be probably the worst scheme fit for us of all the centers at 10. He that i know of has never shot a 3 at all in a game and is about as close to a capela type of center as you can get in this draft. Good defense with most of his points down low and not much else. Which isn't a bad player at all and will be great for some team but the hawks make our centers stretch the floor to the 3 point line and be able to hit it at a ok clip around 30 to 35% i would say on a few 3's a game. We made Dedmon and Alex Len do it this year and they were both pretty good at it as well it makes our offense flow so much better. The centers i see that can do this well are Bol Bol, Goga, and maybe to a lesser extent Clarke but he can still do it.
