Golden State selected Ryan Rollins out of Toledo with the pick. Earlier in the evening, the Hawks selected AJ Griffin, a wing out of Duke, with the No. 16 overall pick. Atlanta will round out their 2022 draft class with the No. 51 pick, barring another sell of a pick.
The Hawks moved down seven spots with the trade with the Warriors. Atlanta has had a history of selling second-round picks since Tony Ressler acquired the team, and that continues here at the 2022 draft.
