The 2022 NBA Draft will commence on Thursday evening, with the Atlanta Hawks currently sitting with the Nos. 16 and 44 picks. Travis Schlenk, Landry Fields and the rest of the Hawks front office will look to make use of the evening to bolster the roster heading into the offseason this Summer.
The Hawks have been brought up in several rumors over the past few weeks, with several of those reports surrounding forward John Collins. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski said on ESPN on Tuesday evening that Collins is likely to be moved at some point this offseason.
