The Atlanta Hawks have a well-known history of doing really bizarre stuff on NBA Draft night -- take a walk through the past decade or so with Peachtree Hoops' rundown if you don't recollect. And that was before last year, when they sold a pick and spent another on Pape Sy.
The Hawks shocked the world Thursday night, however, by picking an actual player. Oakland Golden Grizzlies center Keith Benson, a six-foot-11 center, is known as a decent defender and excellent shot blocker. Though he needs to hit the weight room to develop a professional physique and there are some questions about his motor -- read up on him at Draft Express' very extensive profile.
Zaza Pachulia, sounds like you have a young fella to toughen up a little bit, but this might be the least-disappointing Hawks draft pick in quite some time. Many are pouncing on his lack of toughness and post moves, but hey -- at least we've heard of him.
