If you believe the NBA mock drafts floating around the internet, the Hawks will select a former Duke star with the No. 8 pick in the June 20 draft.
No, not that one - Zion Williamson will be long gone by the time the Hawks make their selection.
Most mock drafts have Atlanta selecting Cam Reddish at No. 8, one of three former Duke players (Williamson, R.J. Barrett) expected to go in the top 10.
Reddish averaged 13.5 points and 3.7 rebounds playing alongside the presumptive No. 1 pick Williamson (the national player of the year) and Barrett, who averaged 22.6 points and 7.6 rebounds and is projected as a top-three pick.
Two others mentioned as possible picks at No. 8 - Virginia’s De’Andre Hunter and Jarrett Culver of Texas Tech.
