The Atlanta Hawks drafted Omari Spellman 30th overall this offseason. Let’s look at some bold predictions for the rookie.

The 2018-19 season will be here before you know it, Atlanta Hawks fans, and we want to welcome you to the build-up to it the only way we know how. With plenty of new faces to get acquainted with (as well as a smattering of holdovers from last year’s team), the Hawks will make for a fascinating case study in 2018-19.

One way to look ahead to the 2018-19 regular season is by exploring predictions for each player on the roster. Next up is 30th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft: Omari Spellman.

While Spellman wasn’t our number one choice for the #30 pick – with a lot of interesting, athletic, long-armed wings still available on the board with the #30 pick, we can understand where the General Manager Travis Schlenk and the rest of the Atlanta Hawks brass was coming from with the selection of Spellman.

A clearly talented player who was coming off a NCAA title with Villanova, Spellman’s college pedigree was among the best for a freshman. In terms of his on-court skills, Spellman will be able to immediately provide a boundless motor and what should be a knockdown three-point stroke in a hulking, big man-sized frame.
