After making the blockbuster deal for Dejounte Murray last summer, the Atlanta Hawks have limited draft assets heading into the offseason. In fact, the Hawks only have two readily tradable first-round picks at the moment – the 15th overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft and a 2024 first-round draft pick via Sacramento. Unless something changes, it would be extremely unlikely for the Hawks to trade either of these picks.

Nevertheless, if they were willing to go completely all-in on the offseason, which I’m not sure is the best course of action, they could find some trade value with these two picks. But it won’t be great. The 15th overall pick in this year’s draft holds good value but not great considering this year’s NBA Draft may not be considered a deep one.

The other draft pick that they could theoretically move, a 2024 first-round pick from Sacramento suddenly isn’t as valuable considering the steps that the Kings have made as a franchise in the last year.

In order to maximize these two draft assets via trade, they’d probably have to pair them with a player or two this summer.
