According to multiple reports, the New Orleans Pelicans will send Anthony Davis to the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for three players and three first-round draft picks. 

One of those first-round picks includes the No. 4 overall pick in Thursday night's draft. Do the Hawks now have a legitimate shot to package some or all of their six selections in the 2019 draft to move up to No. 4?

"If I'm the Hawks, I'm on the phone with David Griffin trying to see what it would take to get that spot if you really feel like that's what you need to do to get your guy," Andy Bunker said. 

There has been a lot of speculation that the Hawks covet Duke's Cam Reddish. Some in the media believe he'll still be there when Atlanta selects at No. 8 but others say he'll be off the board by then.

"If your guy is there, and you have the opportunity or the means to go get him, you go get him," Randy McMichael said.
