2012 NBA Draft: Tony Wroten, Tyshawn Taylor Scheduled For Final Hawks Workout

The Atlanta Hawks will wrap up announced workouts on Tuesday with a couple of point guard prospects in Tony Wroten and Tyshawn Taylor.

Its interesting that Wroten is in the final workout for the team as most early mock drafts projected him to Atlanta then moved off of him. Chad Ford's latest mock draft once again projects Wroten to the Hawks.

Analysis: The Hawks don't have any depth behind point guard Jeff Teague. Sources say that, in the past few weeks, they've become enamored with Wroten. His shot is broken and he can be wild, but he has enormous upside as a big point guard who can see the floor and get to the rim.

Taylor is another interesting prospect that could be in play in the second round should Atlanta focus on drafting a big or a wing in the first round. Wroten fits the combo guard profile and could potentially slide into the reserve role that Kirk Hinrich was in last season.
