Another team that should be open to selecting Bronny James with one of their first-round picks in the 2024 NBA Draft is the Atlanta Hawks. Specifically, their second first-round pick is expected to finish around No. 18 overall. After utilizing their first draft pick to address a need, the Hawks could then choose to pivot toward taking a flier on Bronny with this second draft pick. Much like a few of the other teams on this list, the Hawks could view Bronny as not only a long-term prospect that could pay off in the future but also somewhat of a business investment.

The Hawks could gain some much-needed national attention by drafting Bronny and hope that it turns into something much more beneficial for the team in the long run. With talent littered all over the roster, the Hawks don't necessarily need to use this second draft pick on a must-hit prospect. And if they're going to take a gamble anyway, why not take one on Bronny?

There are a ton of "ifs," ands," and "buts" that go into this scenario for the Hawks. However, the slim chance of LeBron finishing out their career alongside Bronny in Atlanta could be worth this risk.
