Atlanta Hawks
(25-57, 7th in Central, 27 games back in 2001-01)

Round Pick Player Pos College
1 3 Pau Gasol   SF Spain 
2 34 Terence Morris
Traded to Rockets 
SF Maryland 

Hawks fans would have been happy with Shane Battier. Instead they got All-Star-caliber small forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim from the Grizzlies in exchange for the No. 3 pick and spare parts. Getting future first-rounders from the Pacers and Rockets was icing on the cake.

Strengths: Interior defense, shooting guard, frontcourt depth.

Weaknesses: Point guard, backup perimeter scorer, backcourt size, familiarity with teammates, decision making.
