The NBA Draft is next week, and many people still don’t know he teams will pick. The Atlanta Hawks are one of those teams that is looking at all the prospects they can before the draft. They’ve looked at players at all different positions as well. At No. 3, the Hawks could go with any position and still come out good. Point guard may be a possible choice for them. Trae Young is the guard everyone is talking about and there may be a chance the Hawks could seriously consider him with the third pick. The real question is if that be would be the best idea for the organization.
Trae Young had his pre-draft workout with the Hawks on Tuesday. He went through plenty of drills, and also some with the new head coach Lloyd Peirce. Young stated that he talked to Steve Nash, as he’s trying to pick his brain on some things. Nash was a great point guard in his era, so Young talking to him is a great idea. You shouldn’t buy into workouts and who certain teams bring in to look at. If you do, you should look into this one. Just the fact the Hawks brought in a top guard prospect should leave people wondering if they might go with Young.
The Schroder problem
Dennis Schroder is still a problem for the Hawks. After his comments on his future, the Hawks have a decision to make. Should they stay with Schroder or should they move on to another guard for the future? If they do decide to keep Dennis, Trae Young at No. 3 may be a long shot. Keeping Young on the bench may help or hurt him, but ultimately you want a prospect like him starting day one. If the Hawks decide to move away from him, Young will definitely be considered, and I don’t think it would be a bad idea.
