Atlanta Hawks 2019 Offseason Grades: Trading Up for #4 Overall Pick

Just hours before the 2019 NBA Draft, the Atlanta Hawks still were carrying 3 picks in the top 20.

There were many rumors of not only the Hawks moving up, and putting some or all of the 8th, 10th and 17th picks together to move up.

Just about 90 minutes before Adam Silver took the stage to start the 2019 NBA Draft, the Hawks reached an agreement with New Orleans.

They sent their own pick (8th), the 17th pick they recently acquired from Brooklyn in the Taurean Prince trade as well as the 35th overall selection, hanging onto the 10th pick that came from Dallas.
