Why the Atlanta Hawks should (and should not) draft Tyrese Haliburton.

Ever since the Atlanta Hawks won (“won”) the sixth pick in the lottery, one player has been penciled in beside their name in mock drafts frequently: Tyrese Haliburton.

The Iowa State product is one of four point guards expected to go in the lottery. Many (including myself) have noted that Haliburton is probably the best fit with the Atlanta Hawks of those four, although none are a snug fit.

Speedy as he is lanky, Haliburton is certainly an interesting piece to add, one that could help the Hawks both now and in the future. He’s also seen mostly as a high-floor, low-ceiling type player. While he, at the very least, should turn into a solid role player, there are a handful of more risky prospects (such as Obi Toppin and Cole Anthony) who could become bonafide stars.

Here we’ll be taking a look at both sides of the coin and making the argument for why the Atlanta Hawks should and should not draft Tyrese Haliburton.
