2012 NBA Draft: Draymond Green Sounding Like Solid Option For Atlanta Hawks

Draymond Green recently worked out for the Atlanta Hawks and reportedly impressed those in attendance with his versatility and skill. Hawks coach Larry Drew raved about Green following the workout and predicted future success at the pro level.

"I think he's going to be a terrific NBA player. I don't think there's enough players like him that bring a little bit of everything to the game. But he certainly is that type of player, that caliber of player."

The Hawks have a team full of versatile players and it is not unusual to see a forward like Josh Smith or Al Horford leading the team in assists.

"I think he can develop into a three. I think he has that versatility where you can move him around. A lot of it depends on matchups. But I think he has the foot speed and the size to play the four, and I think that's just going to be a plus for him and his game to move from the three to the four," Drew said after watching Green work out. "As I said before, this league is really starting to move more toward that versatile player, a guy who can play multiple positions. And he certainly fits that profile."

The Hawks continue workouts on Wednesday and have several more scheduled leading up to the draft.
