The Atlanta Hawks have landed the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming NBA Draft, sparking widespread speculation about their next move.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski described the draft as “the most unsettled first round since 2013,” citing the unpredictability of the top pick. Sam Vecenie of The Athletic echoed Wojnarowski’s thoughts, stating, “There is not really a consensus among teams about what the Hawks will do at the top.”

Big man Alex Sarr has emerged as a potential top pick, with Bleacher Report’s Jonathan Wasserman projecting him as the No. 1 overall pick in his latest mock draft.

Sarr’s defense stands out with his ability to defend multiple positions and protect the rim, and he can also extend his offensive game beyond the arc and has a soft touch as a scorer.

However, Wasserman’s big board also lists Nikola Topic, Reed Sheppard, and Ron Holland ahead of Sarr, highlighting the fluidity of the draft board.

This unpredictability is welcome news for teams that didn’t fare as well as the Hawks in the lottery, as they could still land an impact player with an early selection.
