Doesn't look like Andrius will be a Hawk

Hawks assistant general manager Dave Pendergraft returned to Atlanta after spending the last two weeks in Chicago at the pre-draft combine and in Minneapolis to watch 42 prospects work out. The Hawks own the No. 24 pick in the first round and Pendergraft isn't sure they'll get a player who can contribute right away.

"Now, as things start to dwindle down, I'm really not so sure about that," Pendergraft told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"I think we will get a piece," Pendergraft added. "I don't think we will necessarily get a rotational piece. We can get a player who after some seasoning can stay in the NBA for a while, that can make a career out of it. If we can keep our roster intact I don't see a lot of playing time. It will be a situation where we take advantage of our D-League affiliate."

The Hawks will need a shooting guard if Joe Johnson leaves via free agency, but it doesn't sound like there's much available at No. 24.

"No," Pendergraft said. "That's the [freakin'] problem. There are bunch of guards but not a lot of shooters. There are some good players but they can't make shots. And the better shooters can't play a lick of defense."

 

Would Andy Rautins be one of those shooters that can't play a lick of defense?
