Hawks Once Again Squander Opportunity To Add Size

Chris Craft is the latest Peachtree Hoops Scribe to dismiss the Hawks’ draft as a bit of a letdown. Though he acknowledges the Hawks “should be happy with the addition of Jordan Crawford” with the 27th overall pick, he also believes the Hawks should have addressed their need for a big man:

My beef is with the botching of making a second draft pick that could have filled a serious need for the team. There was a string of 6’11" or taller players that were picked late in last night’s draft by teams that recognize the importance of size in a winning equation.

The Hawks’ other pick, small forward Pape Sy, will likely remain overseas to gain experience, which again leaves the Hawks with only Al Horford and Zaza Pachulia at center.
