13. Atlanta Hawks – TyTy Washington, G, Kentucky

TyTy Washington is one of the most polarizing prospects in the 2022 NBA Draft class and I have a feeling that is only going to be proven true in the next few months ahead of the actual draft. That said, I’d still be shocked if there wasn’t a team willing to take a chance on him in the lottery.

Perhaps the Atlanta Hawks would be open to taking the high-profile guard out of Kentucky. After somewhat of a disappointing season, there is a myriad of different ways that the Hawks could go.

Adding a lottery talent could go a long way in getting this team back into the discussion of the Eastern Conference. One thing is for sure, though, this has been one of the Hawks’ most disappointing seasons in recent history.
