In recent days, the Atlanta Hawks have hosted a number of intriguing prospects for pre-draft workouts, headlined by UCLA’s Aaron Holiday and the Villanova pairing of Jalen Brunson and Donte DiVincenzo. On Monday, the team’s evaluation process will continue as six prospects will be in attendance at the Emory Sports Medicine Complex.
Three prospects are generally ranked in the range that would interest the Hawks at No. 19, No. 30 and/or No. 34 overall. Cincinnati’s Jacob Evans (full breakdown here) is a potentially interesting two-way wing prospect quickly rising up draft boards in advance of June 21. In addition, a pair of intriguing veteran guards make the list, with Landry Shamet of Wichita State (full breakdown here) and Devonte Graham of Kansas (full breakdown here) participating.
Shamet and Graham likely wouldn’t be in play at No. 19 overall but both would be potentially intriguing later in the draft. Finally, a trio of forwards (Middle Tennessee’s Nick King, Vanderbilt’s Jeff Roberson and Bucknell’s Zach Thomas) round out the field of prospects and, while none are projected to factor into the draftable pool for Atlanta, the Hawks would certainly be looking ahead to Summer League and training camp invites at this early stage.
