Hawks Plan On Keeping No. 1 Overall Pick

The Atlanta Hawks don’t plan to trade out of the No. 1 overall pick.

“I think we’re really excited by the draft,” Landry Fields said Monday. “And the more that we uncover, like we go, great, I’m glad we have No. 1. I keep joking around like I’m not giving it back. So, I think we’re in a really good position here. I’m excited about it, frankly.”

The Hawks moved up to win the lottery on May 12th with just three percent odds.

Fields is beginning to narrow down Atlanta’s option at No. 1.ย 

“I would say a week ago it was wider than it is now,” he said. “The board is definitely shaping up, tiering itself out.”

The Hawks face an uncertain offseason with the possibility of a major trade involving either Trae Young or Dejounte Murray widely expected.

“We as a group looked at a ton of different scenarios,” Fields said. “Like if you keep the pick, you try to get back into the draft. … With where we are right now, we’ll pick one. … We’re planning on picking one.”
