Gary Trent Jr.

Another player who profile as a three-and-D wing, Gary Trent Jr. out of Duke showed enough in his first season to merit a late-first or early second-round pick from the Hawks. Though overshadowed by Marvin Bagley III’s lotto-bound brilliance and Grayson Allen’s senior season farewell tour, Trent quietly had a strong season for the Blue Devils.

Trent would be a terrific wing option for Atlanta if he was drafted, as he got up a ton of threes for Duke in his lone season in the ACC. Trent shot 40.2 percent from deep on 241 attempts, which was 4th in the ACC. His 56.4 percent three-point attempt rate would’ve been among the top 5 on the Hawks, as the team desperately needs a deadly shooter from outside that teams must respect at all times – a Buddy Hield or Wayne Ellington type.

Trent could be that guy for the Hawks if they wanted to take a swing on him late-first or early second.
