Hawks hold three picks in NBA Draft in June


The NBA Draft order has been set with the end of the regular season Wednesday.

Well, sort of.

Currently, the Hawks will have three selections to make June 22.

The Hawks hold their own first-round pick, which will be either No. 19 or No. 20 overall. The Hawks and Grizzlies finished with records of 43-39. The NBA will hold a coin flip to break this and other ties in the standings in the near future.

The Hawks also have two second-round picks, Nos. 31 and 60 overall. They have the Nets’ second-round pick of No. 31 that came as part of the Joe Johnson trade in 2012. It is the first pick of the second round. The also have the Warriors’ second-round pick of No. 60 that came via the 76ers as part of the Ersan Ilyasova trade in February. It is the final pick of the draft.

If selected and kept, the players the Hawks take at No. 60 will mostly likely play in the NBA Development League in Erie (Pa.).
