Hawks planning on trading up for Trae Young or Lonnie Walker?


Zach Lowe of ESPN is perhaps the greatest basketball journalists on earth right now. He has his own podcast, The Lowe Post. Earlier today, a pod featuring he and Jonathan Givony dropped, and some juicy Hawks rumors came of it. Let’s get straight to the big picture:

Wow. If the Hawks could pull off taking a top 3 talent AND Trae Young, that could really be something. It is interesting to hear that they are interested in Young, but are trying to trade up for him rather than trade down. This means he is likely not in play at pick 3.

The Hawks are also linked to another great player in this draft in Lonnie Walker:

The Hawks do have a lot of draft capital, so a move up of 7-8 spots for one of these guys is not out of the question. Walker was a talented freshman for Miami last year who displayed tremendous athleticism. It is exciting to hear his name in play as well.
