Should the Atlanta Hawks elect to keep the No. 10 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, here are five prospects to consider with their second lottery selection.

It’s no surprise to call the Atlanta Hawks the most interesting team in the 2019 NBA Draft. Now in control of the 17th overall pick as well as Nos. 8 and 10, they have the artillery to make a dynamic move on Thursday night.

Whether they trade up (or down) is a huge storyline, as it could have ripple effects on the entire draft. In addition, the front office has a knack for thinking outside the box, so they could shock the world simply by standing pat and making a unique addition.

The argument for keeping all three first-rounders is simple: This front office is good at drafting. After choosing John Collins at No. 19 in 2017 and Kevin Huerter at the same spot in 2018, it’s clear this brass is one of the better ones in the league.

With that preface, seeing the Hawks’ strategy with all these assets is a little less clear:

Do they want another ball-handler to alleviate Trae Young? Do they trust Collins at the 5 in crunch-time? Does fit matter if you get a bunch of versatile, intelligent players?

As to not overlap too much with Daniel Lindsey’s look at options at No. 8, here are a few different routes Atlanta could go with its second lottery pick at No. 10.
