What Are Danny Ferry And The Hawks Thinking?

As draft day is almost upon us, it’s easy to look at the Atlanta Hawks and spot specific needs. Despite what many have written, the Hawks greatest area of need has to be on the wing.

When one or both of Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll were off the court for the Hawks last year, they weren’t the same team on either end of the floor. The defense and three-point shooting that those two guys provided was valuable to the Hawks style of play, and their priority should be to add more depth in that mold.

With that in mind, this should be simple and the Hawks should only be considering wing players, right?

The only problem with that is that Danny Ferry might be one of the toughest general managers to read in the NBA. Ferry, and the Hawks organization as whole, aren’t the most forthcoming when it comes to their thoughts, so there’s always potential for a surprise.

Therefore, although I don’t think the Hawks should be looking at anything other than wing players, Hawks fans should be prepared for the possibility of a surprise.

So, to try and cover the bases, let’s take a look at some of the guys the Hawks could take across all five positions, who should be available when it’s the Hawks turn to pick at 15 and 43.
