Hawks' Korver to undergo surgery on elbow

Atlanta Hawks shooting guard Kyle Korver will undergo surgery Tuesday, his second in about a month, this time to remove loose bodies in his right elbow.

Hawks could have hands full with Hardaway

Atlanta dealt the No. 15 pick in Thursday's draft to acquire Tim Hardaway Jr., who was a defensive wreck that regressed as a scorer last season for the New York Knicks. Add nothing special from the team's pair of second-rounders and the Hawks get a thumbs-down from ESPN's Kevin Arnovitz. Draft thumbs-up or thumbs-down

Hawks sacrificed future for present

The trade for Tim Hardaway Jr. may help the Hawks if they can't keep DeMarre Carroll this summer, but passing on a wealth of prospects with potential seems like a missed opportunity. That helped earn Atlanta a C-minus from Chad Ford. Ford's complete draft grades (Insider)

Grant family has Washington history

Jerian Grant was drafted by the Wizards on behalf of the Hawks. His father Harvey Grant was also drafted by the Wizards franchise in 1988 (when they were the Bullets). Jerian was traded to the Knicks after the pick, though.

Oubre: No disrespect after being passed

Kelly Oubre: "Whatever team gets me, we're winning the championship. And I'm ready to put in the work to do so."

Rose likes the Oubre pick

Jalen Rose: "He's a really good defender. He reminds me a lot of Trevor Ariza." Is he a 2 or a 3, though? "He can do both!" Jay Bilas adds: "If he really gets his motor revving a little bit higher ... if he continues to do that, I really like Kelly Oubre at this spot."

Insider profile: Kelly Oubre

Oubre has a great 3-point shot. His maturity and inconsistency are knocks against him, but he grew defensively this season under Bill Self’s tutelage. Oubre averaged 9.3 points, 5 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game this season. 7-foot-2 wingspan

Hawks could aim high in first round

At No. 15, Chad Ford suggests the Hawks should be willing to gamble on potential over polish and go with Texas big man Myles Turner. Though others are more NBA ready, Turner has the size, shooting and shot-blocking to help Atlanta beef up in the paint. Ford's final mock (Insider)


Grant Hill hoping to help bring success to Hawks

Grant Hill always wondered why the Atlanta Hawks struggled to attract big-name free agents. Now the seven-time NBA All-Star faces a challenge to help make that happen as vice chair of the Hawks.
