WRG 2012 Mock Draft - #23 Atlanta Hawks

Simply put, we need help in the back court.

Jeff Teague is up and down at the point, but behind him we don't have any guards under contract, save Joe Johnson, who we can always move to the SF. Josh Smith and Al Horford give us a very nice front line going forward, but we need some guys who can light it up from the perimeter to keep the pressure off from them.

What do you know? A projected lottery pick slid all the way down to us.  A guy who is a great young shooter, has ideal size for a two guard and can finish at the rim athletically.

With the 23rd pick, the Atlanta Hawks select Terrence Ross, SG, Washington.

Stroke it.

Terrence Ross fills an immediate need at SG for us, and he dropped in this draft. We acquired a lottery talent at a need position with the 23rd pick. It doesn't get much better than that.

With his size (6-6) and sweet shooting stroke, we are absolutely thrilled. Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine this pick to pan out like this.
