With the first of two straight picks, the Hawks decided to go European for the first one.
Dennis Schroeder could be the future point guard for the Hawks as he is an excellent athlete, with an excellent jump shot. People have made comparisons to Rajon Rondo and while he needs work, Dennis could be a high impact player in the future. He has good potential to be a solid point guard and if the Hawks are going to start rebuilding this year, then this is a good pick because a good offense needs a good point guard player. While he drives to the basket at an average level he may be able to develop into a excellent scorer and he is also just nineteen so there is room for development.
Draft Grade: B
