2014 NBA Mock Draft: SI.com projects Zach LaVine to the Atlanta Hawks

SI.com's Chris Mannix has released his latest mock draft and projects UCLA's Zach LaVine to the Atlanta Hawks.

Si.com's Chris Mannix has updated his latest mock draft offering and projects UCLA's Zach LaVine to the Atlanta Hawks at No. 15.

No player has more athletic potential in the 2014 draft than LaVine. Can he harness it? That remains to be seen. LaVine was the definition of streaky last year, shooting at a blistering clip in the first month of the season before tailing off badly at the end of it. LaVine is determined to become a point guard, though several interested teams see him as a two. It's similar to how some teams felt about another uber-athletic UCLA guard: Russell Westbrook.

LaVine's stock has been on the rise since his solid showing at the Draft Combine last month. He had somewhat of an underwhelming freshman season at UCLA but has the raw athleticism that many teams crave. He created yet another stir when he showed off a 46-inch vertical jump during a workout with the Lakers on Wednesday.
