2013 NBA Draft: Early entry list announced by the NBA


The Atlanta Hawks will have four picks in the upcoming 2013 NBA Draft.

With the season now over for the Atlanta Hawks the focus now is on what will be one of the busiest offseasons in franchise history. The 2013 NBA Draft will play a big part in how the Hawks' roster looks next season as Atlanta currently holds four picks.

Those picks are broken down into two selections in the first round and two selections in the second. The Hawks will pick back-to-back in the first round at No. 17 and No. 18. Atlanta will also have picks No. 47 and No. 50 in the second round of the draft. If Atlanta holds onto all four selections then there is a strong possibility that each player will participate on the team's summer league entry in Las Vegas joining 2012 draft picks John Jenkins and Mike Scott.

The NBA Draft will be held on Thursday, June 27. The Draft Combine will be held in Chicago on May 15-19 and the annual Draft Lotter will be conducted on May 21.
