Mikal Bridges – Villanova

Villanova’s Mikal Bridges would be an excellent fit with the Hawks, and he is probably the most polished all-around player in the Top 10 of this draft class. His floor is exceedingly high, and he could come into the league and produce for any team immediately.

The Hawks will likely not want to “reach” for Bridge if their pick lands in the top 5, as he will likely be available in the 8-10 range. If the team is extremely high on him and they don’t land a top-5 pick, trading down might be worth it – as Bridge’s defensive acumen and shooting stroke would benefit the Hawks on both ends.
