With their final selection in the 2015 NBA Draft, the Atlanta Hawks have selected power forward Dimitrios Agravanis with the 59th overall pick.

Agravanis was ranked as the number 100 overall player by ESPN's Chad Ford, while landing as the 14th-ranked International prospect by Draft Express. The 6-foot-10 power forward from Greece was last seen participating for Olympiakos, and he averaged 6.4 points and 3.1 rebounds per game in 27 contests.

He profiles as a "stretch four" at the NBA level, though he has a solid frame at 6-foot-10 and 235 pounds. Here is a video package for Agravanis:

In conjunction with the 50th overall pick and the potential cost savings of the Tim Hardaway trade, the Hawks are likely to stash Agravanis in Europe for the immediate future. Still, he is seen by some as a bargain at this late juncture of the draft, and value is at a premium.
