The postseason continued to roll on without the Atlanta Hawks who are beginning the first phase of their offseason. They are set to host Miami tweener big man Norchad Omier on May 8 but, before that, Atlanta will host six prospects for pre-draft workouts on Monday (May 7), per Kevin Chouinard of Hawks.com.
Atlanta holds the No. 15 overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, though not all of the prospects will be first-round picks and some might even remove themselves from consideration with several retaining eligibility.
One of those who is keeping his options open is Penn guard Jordan Dingle who also entered the transfer portal.
Jordan Dingle – G – Penn – 6-foot-3 – 200lbs
Dingle averaged 23.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in his third season for the Quakers.
It is his second consecutive season averaging over 20.0 points per game and came on .464/.356/.856 efficiency. A two-time All-Ivy selection during the regular season and conference tournament, he was named the conference’s Player of the Year for the 2022-23 season and won Rookie of the Year following the 2019-20 season.
He went for 19 points and six assists in Penn’s lone Ive League Tournament game and was the second-leading scorer in the nation this past year.
As it stands, Indiana has already been linked to him.
The Hawks don’t have an immediate need for a young guard in the pipelines but Dingle is not the only one that will work out for them on Monday.
