Hawks Draft Xavier Guard Jordan Crawford And Senegali Small Forward Pape Sy

You may remember Jordan Crawford as the guy who dunked on LeBron to Nike’s displeasure. He’s just joined a roster stocked with another J. Crawford, plus a Josh Smith, Joe Smith, and Joe Johnson (for the moment).

Far more disturbing than the promise of seeing JO. and JA. CRAWFORD name plates is the sale of the Hawks’ freshly acquired 31st pick to the Oklahoma City Thunder for cash money.

Details are very sketchy on second-round pick Pape Sy. The first two Google results for his name disagree on his height by four entire inches. That’s never a good sign. Peachtree Hoops is on the case.

Also, Georgia Tech forward Gani Lawal was selected by the Phoenix Suns with the 46th pick. The pick went off without a hitch, as Lawal’s vitals are easily accessible via search engine and the Arizona economy seems able to absorb the financial burden of actually drafting a second-round NBA player.
