The Atlanta Hawks fell into the 15th pick by way of the infamous Joe Johnson trade, but on Thursday evening, the team elected to trade back while adding some ammunition for the future.

Adrian Wojnarowski, who has earned the reputation as a legend of the NBA Draft process, reports that the Hawks have acquired the 19th pick and two future second-round selections in exchange for the 15th pick. The initial pick will be used on former Kansas swingman Kelly Oubre.

At this point, the Hawks have not made their selection with the 19th pick, though it should be noted that future fireworks are not out of the question. Stay tuned throughout the night for additional information, but Atlanta could still add an impact talent with the 19th pick.
