John Konchar

John Konchar, a Summit League sensation in his senior season, would fill a variety of needs for the Atlanta Hawks were he selected in the 2019 NBA Draft. Though the competition is slightly lesser in mid-major conferences, Konchar put up some truly ridiculous numbers in his final year at Purdue Fort-Wayne.

Per College Basketball Reference, Konchar put up staggering per-game numbers of 19.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.9 blocks – all while shooting 38.1 percent from deep on 4.2 attempts per game.

Konchar was a do-everything swingman for the Mastodons (great team name, by the way), and his size (6-foot-5, 210 pounds) allowed him to guard multiple positions on the other end.

Konchar often had the ball in his hands for Purdue-FW, as his career-high 25.9 percent usage rate would attest, a number that was also 9th in the Summit League.

Sure, the Summit League might not have been the gauntlet that some of the biggest conferences in Division 1 college basketball were, but Konchar’s versatile jumper certainly looked fluid and portable to the NBA line. It seems likely that if the Atlanta Hawks were to take a flyer on a relatively unknown player like Konchar in the undrafted realm or late in the second round, they would immediately reap the benefits by nabbing a talented all-around player with little hype.
