Tuesday evening’s NBA Draft Lottery results are pivotal for the Atlanta Hawks. Obviously, general manager Travis Schlenk and the front office will have the opportunity to select a quality player no matter where the Hawks select on June 21 but, in the same breath, it would be (very) nice for the Hawks to kick-start the rebuild with a bit of good fortune (and perhaps the No. 1 overall pick?) when the ping-pong balls are drawn.
In case you missed it, we broke down Atlanta’s lottery odds in full and that is worth bookmarking in advance of the festivities in Chicago. If nothing else, you should use this particular space as an outlet to discuss what transpires in “game thread” fashion and we’ll be here throughout the evening to break it all down once we know which slot the Hawks will occupy in the lottery.
As always, make sure to be civil to one another in the comment section below and let’s enjoy (or lament) this evening together.
