T.J. Leaf, Tyler Lydon headline Tuesday’s Atlanta Hawks workouts

Highlighting Tuesday’s group of Atlanta Hawks Draft workouts are two of the best stretch fours in the 2017 NBA Draft.

The first notable is UCLA’s T.J. Leaf. A one-and-done freshman for the Bruins Leaf is a fantastic scorer with fluid jump shot and extremely soft tough around the rim. He averaged 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per game last season alongside Lonzo Ball.

The second notable is Tyler Lydon. Lydon, from Syracuse, averaged 13.2 points and 8.6 rebounds last season as a sophomore. He shot 98-246 (39.8%) from three point range in his career. Either of these forwards could be in play for either the Atlanta Hawks’ 19th or 31st pick.

Per Chris Vivlamore there were five other prospects that worked out with the Hawks on Tuesday. Not among them is South Carolina wing P.J. Dozier. Though he is working out with Charlotte today, he will have a workout with Atlanta very soon. A physically gifted small forward with great length Dozier is excellent in attacking the rim.
