University of Georgia guard and future NBA first-round pick Anthony Edwards joined Dukes & Bell Friday to talk about his time at UGA, whether the decision to go pro an easy one, and why should the Atlanta Hawks draft him?

When asked why the Hawks should pick him in the draft.

“I would tell them that I’ve got Trae Young in the backcourt,” Edwards said. “And if you want that John Wall/Bradley Beal or Damien Lilliard/Cj McCollum type deal, pick me!”
