The Hawks have spoken to more than 30 potential draftees between Chicago, Portsmouth Invitational Tournament and selected agent workouts. They expect to speak to about 80 ahead of the NBA Draft on June 22.

The Hawks have held one pre-draft workout in Atlanta, with UCLA’s Aaron Holiday, Utah’s Kyle Kuzma, St. Bonaventure’s Jaylen Adams and Seton Hall’s Angel Delgado. They are expected to resume and ramp up workouts this month.
