Question How many wins will the Atlanta Hawks finish with?

My guess is somewhere between 28-33 wins. They will more than likely finish with the 5th worst record in the league. So the Suns have an excellent chance at getting a top 5 pick. Who would be a good fit for the Suns with a top 5 pick? I am thinking they need to get a franchise type of PG in that draft who can eventually replace Nash in a few years.


What do yall think the Hawks will finish at?

37 wins. I'm not sure the east is getting better and I believe the team won 33 last year... So I believe they'll improve a few games.

Nice and realistic, a franchise type of PG. There's all of 3-4 of those in the league and you'd get one with the 4th pick in the draft.

Yes it is realistic..... Chris Paul was the #4 pick, Wade was a #5 pick, Gilbert Arenas 2nd round pick, Tony Parker #28 pick, and Nash #15 pick


Even if you don't get a franchise PG you can still get a franchise caliber player at another position, you don't necessarily have to have the #1 overall pick to get it, and who is to say that Suns might get lucky and land the #1 overal pick. With the Suns good track record in drafting we should still get a good player from drafting anywhere in the top 10.

Only one of those players can be described as anything close to a PG in the classic, Steve Nash mold. I wouldn't trust most players listed above to run a bingo night, let alone an NBA team.

lol are you kidding me? Wade ran his team to an NBA title same as Parker. You try to discredit me and when I post 4 names your reply is....."Only one of those players can be described as anything close to a PG in the classic, Steve Nash mold.

Wade, Parker, Chris Paul, Gilbert Arenas are all good PG's they all score and their assist to turnover ratio is very good comparable to Nash. Nash however does average a few more assists but to say they aren't traditional PG's is absurd. What isn't traditional about them?

i'm gonna go with 34 and barely missing the playoffs, which is sad that a team that wins 41% of its games almost makes the playoffs

That is what I am talking about mane....... I knew you had some insightful knowledge about the game. Now what kind of lottery pick will this translate into.... a high or low pick?

45 wins. There isn't a team in the east that can match our depth of young talent.

I hate to disappoint suns fans but the pick will be in the 20's which you will probably use for cash to buy more sand for you to pound.

I'd say about 35 wins. Still last in their division.
