Brad Rowland, writer/podcaster for Peachtree Hoops, joined Jeff Benedict Sunday to talk about the upcoming NBA draft and what the Atlanta Hawks will do in the Draft. 

Rowland said he thinks the Hawks are in a great position at No. 3 because the draft kind of starts there, with most thinking the Phoenix Suns will go with Arizona center/power forward DeAndre Ayton at No. 1.  The guys also talked about the one player they don't want (Rowland doesn’t want the Hawks to take Michael Porter, Jr., Jeff doesn’t want the Hawks to take Trae Young) and who Rowland would take at No. 3 (Luka Doncic). 

The Hawks are saying that they plan on going with the best available player if they stay at No. 3. The guys also weighed in on whether or not the Hawks should go after San Antonio Spurs small forward/shooting guard Kawhi Leonard.
