Atlanta Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk joined John and Hugh on Tuesday morning before the NBA Draft Lottery. With the Hawks having a 10.5% chance of winning the #1 overall pick, Schlenk addressed the possibilities for tonight and what he would consider a win.

"Having the possibility of having two picks in the top 10 would be pretty exciting," said Schlenk. "We have a 76 percent chance to keep the Mavericks pick and a chance to move up with ours."

He also speaks about the NBA changing the draft lottery and making it more of a nationwide event.

"Now you have all the GM's, players, it gives it a lot more buzz because there's so many people involved," said the Hawks' GM. "(It) was a really good change to move it to Chicago during the pre-draft camp."

Schlenk closes his comments by speaking about his nerves and trying to relax and have fun tonight."

"It will be stressful, it gets exciting, we're hoping for good luck tonight and hopefully a celebratory dinner afterwards, " Schlenk said. "I don't get too wired up about things I can't control. It will be exciting, obviously a huge day for the franchise. If we get lucky it will be great for the city and great for the fans."
