With the sixth pick in the 2020 NBA draft, the Atlanta Hawks select, Onyeka Okongwu, C, USC.
Well, Trae Young needed a big man to help him, and the Hawks addressed that need perfectly right here. Okongwu is a 6’9 245 behemoth. He was nearly averaging a double-double in college. He would average. 16.2 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 1.1 assists. Okongwu will help clean up the boards, get some lanes open for Trae, and he’s a winner. The kid will bring energy night in and night out and will do anything he can to put the Hawks in a position to win.
Detroit Pistons, you’re on the clock.
