DeAndre Hunter at 4!

Obviously, they couldn't have, or they wouldn't have made this deal.

Even if he wasn't, still not worth drafting at #4.

My only question about DeAndre Hunter is his upside. But his floor is still better than just about any other player in this draft. 

Great complementary piece.

DeAndre Hunter will be a good player - probably not an all-star but maybe can get there some years.

Is 8, 17, 35 and an expiring contract too much?

YES

You gotta remember though - this is a 4-5yr rebuild and we are just starting year 3.   Hawks will have oodles of cap room in 2020 or 2021 to put finishing touches and top FAs by then.

FWIW, during PTI, Jay Bilas said he's clearly one of the best four players in this draft (or words to that effect).

A Lual Dang type impact

Ewww

I at first didn’t love it either when Jalen brought it up.  But it made sense when he explained it.

I've coveted him on this board literally this entire year, so I clearly disagree.

Me too bro. I think he's the right pick at four, unless Zion, Ja or Barrett drops to it. That probably aint gonna happen. I know the TATH Culver Nation is disappointed but if it's Hunter I think they'll warm up to him.

I feel pretty confident we're going to trade down from #10 now as a way of recouping assets.

Unless we're that in love with Cam Reddish.

To be fair, I wanted both. Even now, I'm looking at the board to figure out a miracle scenario where Culver could fall to 10.

I would have preferred Culver but Travis is shoring up that defense now instead of waiting on free agency.  Hunter will be their Draymond Green.  They still have the 10th pick also.  Good move by their general manager...

I’m saying he does deserve it.

We have $62M coming off the books with four expiring contracts after this season. Plus up to two first round picks (CLE pick Top 10 protected). We should pick up two nice pieces tonight. Looking like Hunter and Hayes. I'd be good with that. We need defense more than anything and both of them can move that meter. Take them and sign a veteran back up point and we will be a much better team this year. Should end our two year playoff hiatus and start a long playoff run.

ESPN mock has Pelicans taking Hayes at 8 and Atlanta taking Reddish at 10.

Bingo.  I'm looking at Montrez Harrell from the Clippers and VanFleet from Toronto as the finishing touches in 2020 in this rebuild. A the Hawks could look like this in 2020 ( obviously don't know who they will target in next years draft)..   They could also target Derozan and shore up shooting guard.

pg  Young, VanFleet

sg Huerter

sf  Hunter, Bembry

pf  Collins, Spellman

c  Harrell
