For the first time in the franchise’s history, the Atlanta Hawks win the NBA Draft Lottery. The Hawks finished 36-46 this season for a 10th-place finish in the Eastern Conference and had only a 3 percent chance of winning the first pick in the 2024 NBA Draft. Those are the fifth-lowest odds by a team to win the No. 1 pick since the lottery began in 1985. This will be the first time since 1975 that the Hawks will own the number 1 pick when they drafted Hall of Fame guard David Thompson. Thompson never played with the Franchise and chose to sign with the ABA’s Denver Nuggets.

The draft is June 26-27 in Brooklyn.

A lot of decisions await the Hawks this upcoming season. Questions surround their backcourt and whether they will trade one or both of their all-star guards, Trae Young and Dejounte Murray. Young has been rumored to be on the trading block and teams like the Los Angeles Lakers reportedly have interest.

3% is all you need
