Two point guards hoping to be selected in the first round have been reported to have workouts with the Atlanta Hawks.

The Atlanta Hawks would not appear to be in need at the point guard position, but New Mexico's Kendall Williams and Arizona State's Jahii Carson have been in Atlanta to workout this week:

Carson was considered a late first-round selection at the beginning of the season before his production dropping off in his sophomore season. Jahii is an older sophomore (turns 22 in August) who averaged 18.6 points and 4.6 assists this past season. While his scoring remained steady, he was less efficient across the board. He took more shots while creating fewer steals and assists. He is mostly viewed as a late second round player following an unimpressive NBA combine and has no assurance of being drafted.

Kendall Williams is a senior point guard who brings more leadership than athleticism to the position. He averaged 16.0 points and 4.9 assists with an outstanding assists/turnover ratio. Williams is a better pure point guard prospect than Carson. Despite being the 2012-13 Mountain West Conference Player of the Year as a junior and following it up with a successful senior campaign, Kendall is expected to go undrafted on June 26.
