2014 NBA Mock Draft: NBA.com projects P.J. Hairston to the Atlanta Hawks

NBA.com's Scott Howard-Cooper projects P.J. Hairston to the Atlanta Hawks in his latest mock draft.

The NBA Draft is less than a week away and teams are rushing to get a final look at prospects and make preparations. The Draft got turned upside down yesterday with the news of Joel Embiid's foot injury. While it might not directly impact the Hawks it will flip flop a number of things in the lottery.

NBA.com's Scott Howard-Cooper has updated his mock draft post-Embiid injury and projects D-Leaguer P.J. Hairston to the Atlanta Hawks.

15. HAWKS, P.J. Hairston, D-League, SG, 6-4, 220

Hairston finished his season with the Texas Legends at 21.8 points and 32.3 minutes in 26 games, reinforcing his standing as a first-rounder who can score from the perimeter or go hard to the rim. Teams will look hard at his background after being suspended by the NCAA, in part over some acquaintances.

Hairston is a name that I don't feel like we have talked enough about. The red flags that eventually led to his dismissal at North Carolina have been quieted while he was in the D-League where he showcased his talents as an explosive scorer, good shooter and capable defender. Here is a look at his scouting report video from DraftExpress:

Hairston will reportedly work out for the Hawks sometime before the draft. I like the three-point ability he shows in transition and he did a good job in the pick and roll which are staples of Mike Budenholzer's offense.
